Bend in the River Alde, below Snape
Bend in the River Alde, below Snape
In the distance, the tower of Iken church.
The land on the far side of the river was formerly farmland and has been reclaimed by the water after the river wall was breached. The breach seen here on the far right is one of several that interrupt the wall (this one is too small to appear on the 1:50,000 OS map): the path along the river wall remains a public right of way but can no longer be walked.
In the distance, large numbers of roosting gulls: the photo was taken some 30 minutes before sunset and a steady stream of gulls was passing over to join the flock.
