Slightly becalmed on the South Coast

The sea was pretty flat by the time we arrived at the beach, just after sunset.  It was nice, that is dull, and clouds meant my husband probably wasn’t going to see the Venus-Mars conjunction he was hoping for; we nearly turned around and went home.  But soon it was dark enough for some long-but-not-too-long exposures of gentle waves on a pleasingly rocky part of the shore.  Also in my evening’s photo haul: scenic fishing boats rocking very slightly at anchor and rock pools with beige seaweed.  You don’t need to see that.
