When the rain stopped I took myself to the beach again. I took a few of my usual bleak winter beachscapes, and some shots of the pier.
Then I took the plunge and asked a metal detectorist if he minded me taking a few pics. He okayed it. I slipped up by not getting any shots of what he found, but a ring-pull, a piece of coal and a length of copper wire weren't too exciting - although they would have made factual images. Anyway, some of the shots work on their own and the set works reasonably well. If my car park ticket hadn't been about to run out I'd have taken more. C'est la vie.
