Calm waters

Yesterday’s ‘Evening’ photo was taken in the Shetland Isles, the most northern part of the UK  –  so far north that in an atlas they usually appear in an inset box to indicate that they are further north than the scale of the page will allow.  Below are three more pictures from the Isles.  They capture an idyllic calm of water, rocks and sky.

High tide at Dawlish

Recently I wrote how relaxing and therapeutic the rhythm of the sea could be (Sea watching).  High tide at Dawlish provided a sharp reminder of the extreme opposite  –  the sea’s relentless energy, mighty power and irresistible force.

In the series of wave studies that follow over the next few days I would like you to imagine that you are standing with me on the path topping the sea wall.  Hear the boom of the wave crashing against the wall, feel the spray carried on the wind, smell the sea, watch the explosive collision of waves moving in opposite directions.  Don’t just view the pictures  –  enter the experience of being there!

Sea watching

There are few things in life more relaxing, more therapeutic, than the rhythm of the sea, especially on an otherwise deserted shore.

Breaking Wave

The title is self-explanatory.

Beside the sea

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

The Lighthouse

The lighthouse pictured is La Corbière, situated at the south west tip of the Isle of Jersey.  The name means ‘a place where crows gather’, but the crows have long since been displaced by seagulls.

Patterns in the sand

It is a constant source of amazement that the ebbing sea can leave behind such intricate patterns in the sand.

At the Water’s Edge 5

I was attracted by the reflection of the sky colour on the wet sand and by the sunlight playing on the waves.

At the Water’s Edge 4

One of the joys of a pebble beach is the sound of the shingle rushing back into the sea as each wave recedes.  The effect is strangely both powerful and soothing  –  almost hypnotic.
