Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside...

I'd seen this on Flickr, but doesn't it look wonderful here full size?

It's odd, isn't it, how some photos look so much better as big as possible, and some look better when they are very small, even if they are technically similar.

It was very sunny and there was a lot of contrast, and I generally prefer to do what I did here and let said contrast stand, rather than trying to remove the shadows - I think it works here.

Beautiful picture. I hope y'all had a great time.

We did. I always feel much more cheerful by the sea (or in the hills) though woods help too.

"Don't I recognise that beach?" said the lifelong Margatonian.

Probably. It's 'Botany Bay' (one of the few with chalk stacks).

Why did I think you'd know it? I bet you could guess the bird species we saw, too! (Mind you, the first one was an egret, which I knew had started colonising, but which I last saw in Rhodes town.)

Little Egret not at all unusual in the rock pools at low tide. I guess you saw Cormorant, Oystercatcher, Turnstone, sundry gulls and Feral Pigeon, as they're the top certs for that bay. Plenty of other things you might have seen, depending on how well honed your ID skills are.

Did you know that bay is a Dr Who location?

My ID skills are not particularly honed but, yes, that was about it, though I didn't see any Cormorants, and only the gulls co-operated with photography...

This is Margate?

I do love the seaside. I used to live in Southampton as a sproglet, and it's just soothing and pleasing.

Just the Margate side of Broadstairs.... It wasn't the bay we were aiming for, either...

Mmm. Lovely. I also liked the pics in the last post - you and Ina both looked so relaxed! Enjoy autumn as long as you can.

I'm not sure how relaxed we were with Dracopup tied to a bench at this point...

Gorgeous! I haven't been to the seaside in decades. The berach looks marbellous.
