It was a very early (3.30am) start again this morning to capture some photos as the sun came up. Standing on the beach in the dark, not a sound but the waves gently breaking in the distance as the tide was low, waiting for first light, all tension slipping away, I knew I would get a picture. I was again reminded that this is where I want to be. Under these conditions I can really engage creatively with my environment and as the birds started to sing and the first streaks of light appeared in the sky, my shutter started clicking.
We’re enjoying some lovely spring weather here in the UK and given the weather has been so poor the last five years, I feel I must take advantage. This shot was taken at Hawker’s Cove on the Camel Estuary. The village of Trebetherick can be seen on the opposite side of the river. It is at the village church, almost buried amongst the dunes, that the grave of the poet Sir John Betjeman can be found. I hope you enjoy the picture, I certainly enjoyed taking it! :-)
