Tough at the seaside - # 90/2011

This is typical for a day out on the English coast facing the North Sea. Bright sun, and a good north-easterly wind to make it nice and fresh (that's code for - "A bit chilly; I think I'll wear a woolly jumper").  However, the wind-sailor at Kingsgate Bay near Margate is having a good time.  But notice the coastal cargo vessel: she's anchored waiting for the strong winds to die down before she dashes across to Rotterdam. It was ever thus, since Dutchmen and Englishmen and Viking Norsemen took to ships.


  1. ..and REAL sand. I thought English beaches only had rocks.

  2. Super shot. Really like the composition/cropping or whatever you've done.
