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.

Yesterday evening I spent a few hours out wandering with my thoughts and my camera. I am blessed to have a magical place close by to immerse myself in, to watch the seasons change, the cycles of life turn and the wonder of natures beauty explode in a riot of colours and aromas.
