Thanks, Gillie. I try to get out when we get a bit of sunshine.The Cuckmere valley is the eastern border of our town, so it doesn't have to be too long a spell of sun to get there and back. The beach is about twenty or twenty-five minutes walk from the road.

It looks like a scenic location! Beautiful capture! Are they chalk cliffs?
Thanks for your visit and kind comment. I am not famiiiar with wild carrot seed heads - I probably have been in the UK at the wrong time of year to see them.

Hi Rachel. Yes they are chalk. The cliffs between here and Eastbourne, to the east, are at the end of the South Downs, which are now a National Park.
Wild Carrot looks like Cow Parsley, but smaller, when in flower, but the seed heads are quite exotic before they dry out. I made a photo of one into a card, when I was asked to make some for an open day in a restored walled garden. www.ipernity.com/doc/364457/26162335
Thanks for your visit - all the best.

Thanks, Jaap. It is a largely unspoilt beach. To get to it you have to walk for over twenty minutes from the nearest road.

Well composed seascape, I like the cloudy sky!

Thanks, funtor. It is one of my favorites too. You can only get to this beach by walking 20-25 minutes from the main road. The path at the beach end is grass, chalk and flint. So it rarely gets crowds and often is totally deserted. However Japanese tourists seem to have it as a compulsory part of their UK itinerary!

Used to go somewhere here as a child, walking to or from Birling Gap, I think. I'd love to go again one day

Thanks, Wilm. It is a lovely part of the South Coast of England. We are lucky to live about 3km from here.
