Battered beach and crumbling cliffs

The effects of the elements on the man-made and natural scenery at the beach are an obvious interpretation of the theme of this challenge from Krista and the Daily Post

The breakwaters or groynes take a battering, which helps protect the beach. Without the groynes the shingle would move farther. Pebbles still reach the foreshore. The cliffs are being eroded by waves and weather.

A large number of people braved the cold on New Year’s Day to raise money for the RNLI (whose volunteers were there to keep them safe) and other charities.

What? No photo challenge?

As it is the holiday season there is no photo challenge from the Daily Post this week. I have looked through my photos and decided to share a few from two days a month apart. They demonstrate the changing weather and the effect of light on some views.

 

 

With good wishes for 2018 to all my readers.

A favourite tourist destination

The photos I have chosen for the Favourites photo challenge are two I have not shared previously. They were taken on an overcast afternoon in August. The town is perhaps one of the most visited in England – Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare. Can you spot the helicopter? It rather spoils one of the photos.

I wish all my readers peace and joy at Christmas.
