They form part of the South Downs Country Park and lie on the route of The South Downs Way that stretches from Beachy Head, two miles further east of Birling Gap, westwards to the Itchen Valley, close to Winchester in Hampshire – over a hundred miles distant.
This image was taken yesterday on a glorious November day from near Birling Gap. The Seven Sisters fill the centre of the frame, furthest away and left of centre are the cliffs of Seaford Head.
The tide was out, and although you can’t see it in this image, there is an area of sandy beach approximately where people can be seen in the middle distance. Seawater had pooled in sandy ripples and there were some unexpected and beautiful reflections. Real bonuses that will be the subject of further posts.
Meanwhile this is unashamedly one of those classic shots that has been taken many times before by countless photographers, but not previously by me.
