I have a fondness for pebble beaches. Sun-bathing on a sandy beach is not my scene and I happen to find pebble beaches more interesting and varied. These pictures were taken on a day when the sea was beautifully calm and quiet – just gently lapping the shore. The first of the group is obviously taken above the tide line and the others through the shallow waters, softening slightly the shapes and colours. I was particularly attracted by the range of shapes, sizes and the variety of colours deposited naturally in such a small area.
