Rocks and Shingle after a spring tide and heavy sea
Rocks and Shingle after a spring tide and heavy sea
Moon like landscape - stunning and dramatic. The shingle has recently been moved around by a lively sea and it can be seen mounded up everywhere - moulded up around the rocks, and carved away again by the streams. There were no footsteps anywhere for quite a long stretch of this coast - which makes for a pleasant walk, as all there is to experience is raw nature without any human interference. As you get up to the point of high tide, there is plenty of evidence of the homo sapien in the form of litter and debris - known as 'flotsam'. I wonder why it is that only humans create so much waste and make such a mess of their environment?
