With 25 gold medals up for grabs, today has been dubbed “Super Saturday”, and it certainly has been so far. It has been an idyllic English Summer’s day, much too nice to be glued to a TV screen.
Whitburn basks in the sun amidst golden fields of ripening wheat, with the village fayre in full swing.
Down by the sea the light from azure skies and matching waters is softened by a slight haze rising in the afternoon sun.
I love to shoot the fishing boats in the bay and these are near perfect conditions with the white boat in direct sunlight.
Turning into the light to make more of the haze provides opportunities for silhouetting action shots I spotted a family walking my way and amongst them was today’s portrait subject. This was Magda, born in Germany but in her words “a bit of a mixture” since.
A super smile for Super Saturday, bit like mine when our women’s pursuit team won gold in a new world record (their sixth in six rides!)
