By Jason Swain. I’ve not posted much on this soul surfing blog recently, hardly any decent surf for me during the summer months and when i have been in, no time to hang around and take photos after, so thats my excuse for posting a non-surfing related image from a part of the Island that isn’t famed for its surf :0) It’s the second in a (short) series of images created after a recent trip to Priory Bay ( I’m on the east coast of the Isle of Wight for a change)
As described in the first piece, the beach at Priory Bay was packed with a mix of locals and tourists on a lovely sunny afternoon and at the far south end of the bay I could see a sailing school just beginning to head out to sea for a lesson, when out of nowhere, a dense sea fog came rolling in and completely enveloped the bay, the whole thing taking just a few minutes.
It was quite surreal, the boats all turned around and headed back in, mums called their kids back from paddling in the shadows, it really felt like a scene from a Stephen King horror movie.
But for me it was a unique photo opportunity and i knew these little sailboats would make for great composition and also work well with some flypaper textures to create a faux vintage, oil painting type finished image. (Click here to visit Flypaper Textures.)
