Exmouth and the Exe estuary

It was very windy today at the sea, and with bright sun that was so low photography was difficult. The tide was out on the estuary and with hardly anyone around the dogs ran their little legs off. Over on the main beach there were loads of people and it was possible to walk around Orcombe Point. Water was streaming down the cliff and there were fresh landslides caused by the torrential rain we’ve had for weeks now.

It was a lovely walk , great for blowing away the cobwebs and burning some of the thousands of excess Christmas calories!

  1. These are all so great! We went to the beach for a few hours Christmas day and I only took one decent pic due to similar crap light! Yours came out great! Anchor chains are always so interesting aren’t they? I always wonder how old they are and what happened!

  2. I couldn’t possibly pick one photo, Gilly. I love them all. It looks like it was very peaceful to be there. On those windy days, many people shy away from the outdoors. Your bravado landed you some fabulous photo’s. I must say “Bouyed” keeps calling for another view. It would looked great framed.
    Very nice ….

  3. I feel the need of a blow by the sea. I wonder if I can manage to go soon. How does it go again? ‘I must go down to the seas again…..’ I don’t need a ship, or a star to steer me by, but I do love to be beside the seaside. My shots won’t be as dramatic as your lovely ones, though…. 🙂

I would love to hear from you . . .
