Seascapes are often minimalist ‘scapes – just the sea, the sky and a strand of land with no competing objects. But Seascapes are also so much more than that: giant vistas, atmospheric, evidence of the power of the sea in a storm; and they offer grandstand views of the weather – whether it is passing by or approaching.
Many of us feel drawn to the sea. One of the downsides of living inland for the past forty years or so was always that we were situated just about the furthest you could be from the sea in the UK in any direction you cared to think of. That has now changed and in the space of a couple of months we have visited the sea five times.
This image was taken from outside the East Beach Café at Littlehampton. Plenty of ‘weather’ was happening far out to sea but little of it came our way that afternoon.
