Seven Sisters by my side


Taking your chance when skies clear. Making a run for it into rare bursts of blue. That's how it's been this holiday. More time indoors than I wanted. Books, wine, radio, lots of writing, dozing through dark afternoons and a much tidier house than I've had for a while!!

Beach times have felt precious in short hours of daylight, but storm tides have hauled away stones to reveal more sand than usual and as we all know, most people only walk a short distance from their cars in areas or astounding beauty or wildness. So here are some solitude shots from last week when I was having fun with the camera.

Birling Gap and the beach beneath Seven Sisters cliffs.

Happy New Year. Ax

Hi Mary Ann. Thank you. Yes, they were very beautiful waves on a day of reasonable calm between storms. Think there's been a lots of beach carving going on since then.

Hi Jeane. Thank you. Been taking lots of shots on the days when we can see the sky here! It's a great place to wander away from the crowds. Happy new year to you as well. Ax

Your beach is magnificent. I've never seen anything like it.

Hi Sharmon. Thanks for dropping by. Yes, this is a wonderful beach about an hour east along the coast from here. Very wild for this part of England.
