Wild flowers and grasses

The glorious white sand beach of Pentle Bay on Tresco is fringed on the landward side by gentle dunes.

Among the marram grasses are unexpected patches of wild flowers and ferns.

Above the dunes is a coastal path

bordered by more wild flowers and grasses.

More Dunes

My fascination with the dunes caused me to return on numerous occasions.  I became absorbed with the character of the landscape and decided to be a little more adventurous in my interpretations of the scene.

I also created a black and white image from the third of the group above.

Camber Dunes

The long sandy beach of Camber Sands is bordered on the landward side by picturesque sand dunes.  The dunes are covered with marram grass that has a deep root system to hold the grass in place.  Traditional chestnut fences help sand build up and check coastal erosion.
