Here is the second part in my ‘By The Sea’ series of photographs.
The first few shots were taken near the beach hut, which looks out at the ocean. We spent a lot of time there that day, as we do every summer, passing time by chatting, swimming (that took some bravery at first, even with a wetsuit against the cold), playing tennis and eating chips.
The last shot was taken from the nearby cliffs later on, in the early evening when the fog finally lifted and the clouds started to burn off, showing off the colours of the Devon coastline in all their glory; the bright red of the cliffs, the verdant blanket of forest and most strikingly, the bright blues and greens of the sea, which could rival the Aegean on a clear day.
I like the contrast in this post of the moody atmosphere in the first few shots, juxtaposed with the vivid, rich colours in the last shot; to think the photos were taken within a few hours of each other, after a stormy period late in the afternoon.
