The Weather at the Sea

It's bracing weather for a walk on a November afternoon in the town of Deal on England's North Sea coast. "Only a few people out, a number walking the dog," writes Your Shot member Cedric Delves. "Perhaps it was the weather, but having wrapped up, most appeared to have turned inward, to thoughts, worries, and all; only the dogs seemed wholly at ease, simply out and about for the fun of it.

"I thought I would try to capture something of this. These three came from different directions, at differing speeds … Fortunately all came together: the two people deep in their thoughts, going their separate ways, but the dog at ease, even giving me a direct, open, and sort of knowing look."
