I’m back in Wells after a month down in Surrey. As always the first thing I do is to go for a walk to take the air and to see what’s what. It’s a mild day with little wind. The tide is coming in and although it’s mid afternoon the light is flat and is already beginning to fade. Here is my walk ….
The berries of the sea buckthorn stand out bright orange in the dull light.
It’s a very lazy tide today and the sea laps gently up and around the groynes.
There are a couple of seals swimming around just off the beach. Rope barriers have been set up to give the seals a ‘safe place’ from dogs and humans – this one is very interested in one of the poles.
Cormorants head back inland to their roost.
The sun, just visible through the clouds, falls fast at this time of year.
Its colour deepens the lower it falls.
Across the fields towards Holkham a mist rises after the sun has set.
