Photographer's Note

The day I thought Spring was here to stay, for a while or so i and many others thought! this particular day was filled with ghastly winds and was horribly cold so much so only the brave dared the outdoors. Decided to head to beach for some action images with the wind blasting at the sea. Although many were taken this one stood out and reminded me of 'Sentries' which i aptly named the title as 'concrete sentries'. whilst these concrete pillars stood against the blast of the howling high winds the brave on the beach were trying hard to keep both feet firmly on the ground.

In the background is the houtbay harbour village which on a good day has a different perspective. HBay Harbour village is a working harbour, with family - friendly beaches, good choice of restaurants overlooking the ocean, and also has some of the world's best land-based whale watching.

My choice of b&w is merely because the image itself did not have much colour tone. converting to b&w gave a different perspective for me.


ISO 1600 Shutter 1/3000 @ F/5.6
