The East Sussex coastline is divided by the estuary of the river Rother, on which stands the town of Rye. To the east, stretches the sandy expanse of Camber. To the west, the beaches comprise shingle, punctuated by weathered and disintegrating groynes. At low tide, areas of sand and mud flats are exposed beyond the shingle. Winchelsea beach is a particularly attractive example.
This is 1066 country. It was at Bulverhithe, just twenty or so miles further along the coast, that William the Conqueror landed on 29th September, 1066.
This is the final selection of pebble images – at least, for the time being!
This is the second group of three:
Over the next week or so I intend to post probably three collections of pebble patterns. All of the images were taken as I walked along a beach in East Sussex. When I spotted a pebble that interested me I simply stood over it, pointed my camera down and clicked. The pictures were obviously cropped later. Nothing has been added or removed from the actual image. I am constantly amazed by the beauty of the abstract patterns in natural objects that can so easily pass unnoticed.
