On our last trip to the south coast we re-visited Birling Gap – the day I also shot the image ‘To Infinity’ that featured in my previous post. Click the link if you haven’t seen that.
The light was soft, the tide was high, and the sea close to the coast had a paler hue due to the large amount of chalk sediment in the water. The coastline had a lazy feel to it.
The incoming tide had worn away the shingle on the beach in a repeated pattern so that the tide appeared to have teeth. Why this had happened I know not, but it added interest to the picture.
The classic image of The Seven Sisters cliffs is usually taken from the other end – from a point on the distant promontory of land. I have shot that view too, but in my opinion this view from Birling Gap is at least equally as good
