Beautiful tranquil image Roger. Once I've finished paying my huge garage bill I really ought to set off in that direction; haven't been to Lyme in years.

Such beautiful sunshine...................and not taken that long ago either. What a difference a couple of weeks make!

Superbly composed Roger...........I love the sweeping curve of the beach and the white edges of the water make a great leading line. The colours in the cliffs are wonderfully earthy!

A cracking shot sir! An interesting narrative and link too - thanks for sharing!

This is a real pity, Roger, especially since nature is able to ground and center us in a wonderful way and to sharpen our senses. I guess most people don't realize what they're missing...

People have more leisure time than ever before but use it in other less fulfilling ways and then complain how stressful life is. photography would help so many to see the beauty that is around them.

I couldn't agree more, Roger, and in addition to photography, there are countless other ways to escape from everyday stress and reflect on the essentials. Let's hope that many will find the right path for themselves.
