Fishing boats at Alderburgh

A commercial fishing fleet is now a thing of the past at Aldeburgh.  Skipper Dean Fryer explains why:  ‘Bureaucracy, paperwork, over-the-top EU  quotas and the rising costs of simply fuelling and maintaining a boat has driven most fishermen out of business.’

Nevertheless, fishing seems to be a part of the DNA for many.  The high tide line along the beach is marked by a sprinkling of small boats and, behind them, a row of black fishermen’s huts.  Typically a catch might include sole, skate, bass, flounder, lobster and/or crab.

The shingle beach shelves steeply and ‘vintage’ tractors are used to haul the boats to safe dry land.

View from the Tate

The Tate in the title refers to the Tate Gallery at St Ives.  The picture was taken from a window in the restaurant on the top floor.  I was attracted by the pattern of  activity on the beach below and wondered what L S Lowry might have made of the scene!

At the water’s edge

Throughout our few days on the Norfolk coast the strong breeze constantly injected energy into the waves breaking on the shore.

The lady from the sea

A quiet, uninterrupted paddle and a bare-footed walk across the warm sand in bright sunshine  –  how glorious life is!

Camber Sands

Camber Sands are a stretch of coastline in East Sussex between Rye and the Dungeness headland.  The Sands comprise a flat, golden beach about 5 miles long and provide a favourite venue for kite surfers.  They have been, and are, used frequently for film and TV scenes requiring a desert location.

Although in peak holiday season the beach becomes extremely popular, much of the year, because of its vast expanse, there is ample space to be ‘alone’.  The beach shelves very gently and at low tide it can require a long walk to reach a swimmable depth of sea.

The tranquility of the location evoked a natural, tender response from these two young lovers.

Beside the sea

Black and white seemed the appropriate choice for this scene  –  it utilises the backlighting effectively.

Evening Stroll

Man and his best friend take a relaxed stroll along the beach, alone with their thoughts and the soothing sound of the lapping waves.
