Another location on the south coast visited on a beautiful ‘Summer’ day. Dangerous to hint that this might be the first signs of summer because, knowing the vagaries of the British weather, we may plunge back into something much colder. Enjoy it while it lasts.
Today’s image was taken at Selsey Bill, a notable promontory at the southernmost tip of the Manhood Peninsula on the coast a few miles east of Chichester. The land around here is very flat and in the past, at flood tide, Selsey would be cut cut off from the mainland.
The tide was out on the day we visited exposing a gently shelving sandy beach that was almost deserted. In the past there was a large sand spit extending out into the sea but over time that has been eroded away. I was fortunate to find a small spit of sand that added interest to the image. The coast never stays the same for long: tides and storms continually re-distributing the assets.
