A Year in Birchington-on-Sea

Heavy seas in contrast with a tranquil sky
Really high sea
The sun setting behind the ruined chapel at Reculver
The Golden Minnis Bay
Beam me up Scotty, the cloud and sun combine to form a Star Trek badge
Pastel skies on a warm and humid evening
Hazy colour tones as seen from the slipway east of Coleman's Stairs pathway
The sun setting by the point of Beresford Gap
Full colour looking across Minnis Bay
The sun sets behind Birchington
Full pastel above Birchington as seen from West Bay in Westgate on Sea
A lone sparrowhawk watching the sun rise
