Dawn coastline

A beautiful dawn scene along the Dorset coastline. It’s always a pleasant mystery as to what nature will provide in a scene like this. One of the great things about photography is that it gives you the perfect excuse to just sit and watch!

The colours change constantly as the clouds move in the wind and change shape. The temparature changes too as the sun rises, and nothing stays the same for very long.

I love the interaction here between the clouds and the light, the beautiful subtle colours of the dawn light. Nothing spectacular, and that is what is so pleasant…

I love the silence too…not even an early morning dog walker, just the gentle lapping of the sea against the shoreline…

Chesil beach

A peaceful evening at Chesil beach…There have been svere storms here recently…but all is calm now!

Just a simple composition with the buildings on the horizon providing some scale. Chesil beach is a strange formation as it is a beach that has a lagoon behind it so it is a beach surrounded by water!

Anyway, it was a peaceful evening with lovely skies….and that is all that mattered to me!

Beachy Head, East Sussex, UK

Something a bit warmer than yesterday I think!

I love the drama of the cliffs at Beachy Head in East Sussex, just outside of Eastbourne. What I like about this is that the couple taking their picture, can’t see the drama of their own precarious position near the edge of the cliff. When you are near the edge it is very difficult to realise how dramatic it looks from a distance.

I have ignored this image for a while because I took so many at the time. The couple taking their picture have little impact on the composition at thumbnail level, but become much more important as the image is enlarged, and coming back to this after a few months has allowed me to see it with fresh eyes….so thought I’d post it today!
