Racing the tide

Dragged out of my archive, taken August 2016 at Whitstable beach, England. People walking back along a sand bar as the incoming tide returns and that day, oh boy did the sea come back quickly.

Not something I would normally publish, but I look at this image the more interesting I find this picture. Shot on an overcast morning on Minster beach, England. Annoyingly in the distance I could see Southend across the estuary was lit up by sunshine, but maybe the flat light is the why this image works for me.

For some strange reason which I just cannot explain, the horizon doesn’t look level but if you go to crop the picture and bring the crop line down the horizon is straight.

Victorian Groyne

Taken on a cold January morning 2017, these are the remains of old Victorian beach groynes at Leysdown, Isle of Sheppey, England.  This was also the location of Robbie Williams video for the song “love my life” shot the previous year.
