Continuing the theme of ‘Under Foot‘, today I’m posting another pair of images from Birling Gap. The Sun shone brilliantly that day, and where there is the combination of sun, sea, sand and low tide there is one view that must not be forgotten – look towards the sun. And if you are fortunate, and a light breeze has wrinkled the sand, it’s very likely that you will find images like these. In fact you may well be spoilt for choice, as I was.
I came across a quote by Yann Arthus-Bertrand – a French Photographer and Environmentalist – last week, which I feel is so apt in situations like this, when we are blessed with such delights. He said: “The Earth is Art. The photographer is only a witness”. Ten words that say so much about our relationship with our planet.
Did you see the face in the second image?
