I originally did this as a rather simple summer memory given the freezing grey weather we're having, inspired by one of my favourite summertime songs (Chris Rea's languid "On the Beach" in its original 1986 version), and taking advantage of a character I had made in my incessant dial spinning... ...but then I remembered Nevil Shute's dystopian novel of the same title written 65 years ago; controversial and sometimes criticised for scientific inaccuracy, it remains an intensely moving work, telling the story of the last days of humankind as a group of people in Australia attempt a normal life as they wait for the arrival of a deadly radiation cloud from a war in the Northern Hemisphere the year before... and so to the second and third images.

If this little old Earth makes it thru another 1000 years I would be more than happy one should listen to the words of two songs in the year 2525 and the great song by barry the eve of but one should never forget the song that sums up everything Three wheels on my Wagon But I do love the three images very nice

Dont know the novel but live in Australia so I should give it a read but I think its to late as the deadly radiation cloud has been leaking from our politicans for decades :)

Great scenes but I really like the atmosphere in the last. Excellent work :)

That's a very very nice composed image dear Joe, I also looked at all your last ones that look great, but for reasons you know, unfortunately I can't comment on all of them. I wish you and yours a great new week!
