Some beach pictures taken here in UK. From top to bottom, and from full colour to black and white: Felixtowe, Hunstanston, and Whitby. The last one is not a beach, strictly speaking, but I liked the landscape. I still know very little about this country’s geography, but I find the variety of coastlines quite interesting. And the coast here is close to any place. I recently knew about this Sea Change project and I found it fascinating. Photographer Michael Marten has travelled the entire British coast, taking pictures of places where the differences between low and high tides are dramatic. The pictures are great. The seascape/landscape changes completely in a matter of hours. The entire project took 8 years to make.

If you are planning on doing a similar project, areas in reddish colours in this map are the ones with highest tides.  It’s interesting to see how in the middle of the ocean there is almost no variation in the sea level. And not all the coastal areas behave the same. I wonder which area seems interesting for a next sea change project? 😉

Taken in Hunstanston, another beach place here in UK.

When I visited this place, the tide was low. Far in the horizon you can see the ferry wheel in the amusements park. This concrete wall that cuts diagonally the picture was really impressive. I can imagine that differences between high and low tides are big in this place. It was a grey day, not too cold, but rainy at times. This one needed black and white processing.
