Soft chalk, laid down over millennia by the shells of billions and billions of sea creatures, curves out into the North Sea to form Flamborough Head. Time has brought the tides and storms to crash against the land and break the white stone off to form the beach below. On top, the layer of clay and soil remains a fertile medium to grow crops and graze livestock. Slowly, the restless waves wash away the cliffs, forming caves to collapse and give back the land to the hungry sea. As those tides rise and storms grow more fierce how many more years before the barrier is cut away?
Daily posts on natural beauty are hard to sustain if I’m to get on with my normal writing, so I’ve opted for a weekly one. Sometimes, they’ll include sympathetic built structures, and sometimes I’ll add words. I hope you’ll continue to comment, like, and share so we spread the joy of natural beauty to as many people as possible. It just might persuade some to join the cause and fight to stop the coming climate emergency and species extinction.

Over 2100 of my images here for whatever you fancy online, or as art quality prints to decorate a room or for book covers, calendars, greetings cards, jigsaws, advertising, or whatever else you need.
The small fee helps me maintain and buy equipment and software quality digital photography demands. Everyone should be able to afford my work, I loathe the exclusivity of high prices.
