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? 😉

This was taken in a trip we did to the North Yorkshire Moors area, in UK.

We stayed in a bed and breakfast in Stokesley and did some trips to places in the area. I really enjoyed it. I would like to return some day, maybe in Summer. Whitby was a really surprise. The old Abbey and the cliffs looked great that day. I wondered also why there were lots of people wearing goth clothes. I didn’t knew at that moment that Bram Stoker was inspired here to write his famous novel.  Everything is more clear now.
