The evenings are much shorter at the end of August than around the summer solstice. We decided to have a look at the setting sun over the sea, which entailed climbing a hill. The footpath was surprisingly busy, but the weather was very pleasant.
Here are a few photos selected from many more I took. I am linking to Quest again.
My photo here is on the same theme. The breakwaters or groynes around the British coast serve to take energy from the waves and lessen the impact on the coast during stormy weather. They help prevent the sand and pebbles being washed away. The groynes themselves take a battering and have to be repaired regularly. The storms last winter were particularly severe and the damage to groynes and at least one footbridge has not yet been repaired.
It is National Marine Week from 23 July to 7 August 2016, so my choice of photos fits with this theme. The second photo is of the Beached Art event organised by the Wildlife Trusts.
For the photo challenge from the Daily Post on the theme of dance I am submitting a photo of waves taken on 16 November 2015. The sea never stops moving, whether it is rough, calm or somewhere between the two extremes.
