Kite Surfers, Shoreham Beach

Although the morning started with glorious blue skies, by the time I got the beach it was clouding over. Looking along the beach towards Worthing, there were menacing rain clouds and a steady breeze. And there were also lots of kite surfers out, racing back and forth on the waves. I think I was onContinue reading “Kite Surfers, Shoreham Beach”

More from Shoreham Beach

I keep coming back to Shoreham Beach. I suspect, it is because haven’t been to the seaside in such a long time. Or it could be because I like drinking warm coffee while I get blasted by on shore gales. I don’t know. While I was taking these, another photographer was doing things properly withContinue reading “More from Shoreham Beach”

Kite Surfers, Shoreham Beach

As you can see, the weather has changed on Shoreham Beach, where before it was calm and inviting, now it is much stormier, with quite powerful waves. In the 1970s, surfing and skateboarding were very popular and whever I came to the beach, I hoped to see young people carving up the waves – butContinue reading “Kite Surfers, Shoreham Beach”

Shoreham Beach, West Sussex

Shoreham Beach is a pedestrian bridge away from Shoreham-by-Sea and I suspect during storms, parts of it get a bit closer. After a few glorious, almost July-like days, the weather has finally turned and begun to cool down. On this occasion, the tide was out, so I got to walk on sand for a change.Continue reading “Shoreham Beach, West Sussex”

Worthing Pier, West Sussex

It is strange how seasons change from the edges, the mornings and evenings are much cooler than they were mid-summer and obviously it gets darker much earlier. But as you can see, during the day it is still warm and might even be mistaken for a summer’s day. Piers were a Victorian fad, with seasideContinue reading “Worthing Pier, West Sussex”

Yachts, Shoreham Beach

After 6 months of staying at home, I have started exploring further afield. In this case, about 20 miles away – so not that far! I used to live in Shoreham-by-Sea 40 years ago and whenever I go back I am reminded of what it was like as a child. The church at the endContinue reading “Yachts, Shoreham Beach”

Shoreham Beach, West Sussex

In a change to my usual routine, this morning I drove to the beach, which is about half an hour from where I live. It was still quite cool, but the Sun was very bright, making it hard to take photos. As you can see, some people were in the water although it looked quiteContinue reading “Shoreham Beach, West Sussex”

Lightning, Batu Ferringhi

I used to live here, with a view of the sea. In good weather, the sea had a green/blue tinge to it. When there was a storm, it was dark green. I lived near the top of a high block of flats with a front row view whenever a storm came in. In Malaysia, theyContinue reading “Lightning, Batu Ferringhi”

Across the Strait, Malaysia

Another seascape! Once upon a time, Penang was a hub beween the UK and Hong Kong. During the war, various battles were fought in the Straits of Malacca and later it was a submarine base for the Japanese. These days, the harbour mostly handles cruiseships and ferries carrying holidaymakers to Langkawi (which I will probablyContinue reading “Across the Strait, Malaysia”

On the Beach, Newquay

I photograph on the beach – a lot. Judging by the number of people trying to shift “water-damaged” cameras on eBay, I’m not alone. Beaches are always changing. If you want to photograph wildlife, go early in the morning. If you go in the late afternoon, you will probably see a different kind of “wildlife’.Continue reading “On the Beach, Newquay”
