A Brief Glimpse of the Sun
A Brief Glimpse of the Sun
The weather down in this part of the world can often be different depending on which side of the Downs you are on. Here to the east over the Pevensey Levels the day has been one of overcast cloud veering between grey and white which has extended to nearby Eastbourne. However beyond them and particularly along the coastal strip there has been clear skies and plenty of sunshine on this day resulting in this scene where the dipping sun has just dropped into the small space between the clouds and the heights of the Downs briefly throwing out a golden light over the marshes. Viewed from the footpath beside Langney Sewer and looking over Mountney Level in the foreground.
