    Default Lost Time in Cordoba







    I remember many years back in time, Steve Hackett the guitarist composed a beautiful piece of music entitled 'Lost Time in Cordoba'. In reverence to that piece, I have called this 'Lost Time on the Humber'. OK, so nowhere near as romantic a setting until you listen and look together. Tetney Salt Marsh where this was taken is a sublime place of loneliness and solitude. Just like Hackett's haunting piece.

    I remember it well, from the album Spectral Mornings.

    Textbook example of the compositional rule of thirds.

    Excellent - lovely photo that one could gaze at for some time. Well done Shaun.

    Absolutely Barry, I never ever make out that I am original. If I were to take this shot again though, the post would be slightly further over to the left.

    Thank you so much for your comments.

    Agree, that would be better - but it's still a great photo nonetheless.

    Shaun,

    wouldn't it be easier to leave the post where it is and move yourself to the right instead?

    Methinks you are confusing the virtual with the real

    There is no way I could disagree with that sentiment. I saw him at that time (1979 ?) at Hull City Hall and it was sublime.
