Layers on land, sea and sky

A view at low tide

The photo I have chosen for this challenge from the Daily Post about layers of texture is a very recent one. There were many different sorts of clouds that day. Clouds are three-dimensional consisting of droplets of moisture in irregular layers.

The tide was out, so that layers could be seen: deep water, shallow water, wet sand, shingle, concrete.

In the distance there is a hill, which has more layers.


Changing tides

The photo challenge from the Daily Post is Delta.

The nearest beach to my home is not exactly a delta, although two streams (becks) flow into it. I have collected together four photos from the last six months or so, which were all taken looking towards the south. They are all from dull days. Perhaps this is because I am trying to show a distant hill in the photos. Sunny days are often hazy and the hill would not be clear.

The weather here towards the end of June is not typical British summer weather and is a contrast to the heat wave we enjoyed earlier in the month. Northerly winds, grey clouds, rain…

Another aspect of the photo challenge was changeability, as demonstrated by the rising tide in a delta. I hope these photos demonstrate that.
