April seems to have whizzed by in a flurry of activity and changes. I had expected to be in the full swing of my sewing and wet felting workshops by now, after a great start, news of a spinal issue has put me back in my box. Classes are now one to one in my studio a couple of times a week at most. On the upside, the sun is out which means my camera gets to go on a jolly. Living so close to both coast and woodland, there is just masses of eye candy. I love to wander seeing the beauty in the minute, the tiny things that most people never notice. Today was glorious, sea pinks, sea scurvy and rock samphire adorn the cliffs, a mass of seaweed varieties strewn on the beach, tidal pools with curious blue By the wind sailors, anemones and whelks. Choughs call and hover, seagulls catch the thermals, swallows and sand martins swoop and sing.
All around me textures, colours and forms vibrate in the spring sunlight. Everything sings with vibrant life. If you don’t count the stinky dead crab! There were many empty crab shells and so many tiny shells, empty ray and dog fish egg cases. Life on the shores is rich for those that see beyond the riches in money.
I hope you enjoy my photography, that the images evoke some pleasant memories, feelings or sense of being and belonging. We are all nature.
