Low tide

Some pictures I took in Wells next the Sea, Norfolk.

Low tides in this beach are amazing. The sea recedes hundreds of meters. Last December weather in this area was awful. Storms and tidal surges destroyed the coast line and a quite a few resorts were affected. Someone from that place that I met walking on the beach told me that those two lonely sand dunes are the remaining of a bigger one that was broken by the violent sea. I told him that I couldn’t remember about that specific dune. That was my second visit to this place, and the sea level was different at that time. The harbour area in this place totally empties with the low tide. The stranded boats made look this place like an old dead sea, if it wasn’t because the large bird crowds living here.

And that sea was not just after those dunes, but a lot farther…
