Tidal Pools at Ainsdale Beach

The beaches along the Sefton coast are typically very broad and very flat. Occasionally there is sufficient dip in the beach to leave very shallow pools of water. On such a featureless stretch of sand a photographer must take what he can get in the foreground interest stakes. So, a bit of water, a few ripples and we’re good to go!

Marram, Sea, Sky

As you leave the car park and head for Ainsdale beach you climb up over a narrow ridge of dunes. This fringe of marram stretches all along the Sefton coast providing a wonderful backdrop to the sea and beach. Looking from the crest of the dunes with the tide in gives a wonderful view of marram, sea & sky!
