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.

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!

Sunlight on the sea.

No context is needed for this photo.  It was just a beautifully peaceful late afternoon.  If you listen carefully you can hear the gentle rippling of the waves and the shingle scurrying back to the sea.

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 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.
