Excuse the pun in the title – this is for Thursday Special: Pick a Word and I tried to get a photo which satisfies all 5 in one go AND it is a photo from Holy Island (Lindisfarne) off the coast of Northumberland.
Setting – well the hue of the photo suggests it was close to sunset.
Nubilous – slightly fuzzy, not very clear, it definitely is, due to zooming in so close, and the lateness of the day.
Motley – very much a motley collection of boats on an untidy looking beach at low tide.
Growth – maybe a slight stretch but the ruins of the old priory look to me as if they were growing out of the soil.
Nautical – no comment needed.
