Tide Right in Southport Coast

Tide Right In

It’s a rare sight to see the tide right in along the Southport and Ainsdale coast (well, twice a day, I suppose, but it goes in and out so fast…). When the tide is right up close to the dunes there is a wonderful simplicity to the view. The sea splits the sky from the marram grass with a sliver of smoothness and light.

This landscape shot was captured during one of those rare moments when the light breaks through the clouds illuminating just the sea.

I’ve added this photo to my shop page on Photobox.
