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.
