Whitstable – with photographer friends

Whitstable
Low tide, lots of interesting activity on the beach.
At last by late afternoon the solid grey sky began breaking up and shafts of silvery light played across the sea.

By 7pm the sky was warming up with touches of soft amber that would later become intensely red.

Just before the sun disappeared behind the distant strip of Essex, the view from Tankerton over the huts was  pure colour, the grass turning russet.

By 7:30 above the beach at Tankerton further to the East, the sky was really hotting up for a full-on sunset.

By 8pm I had retired to the bar for a drink, lending my camera to a friend to catch the last rays for me, brilliant job by James Snelling

  1. Nice shots of Whitstable, which I know well, and have dozens of pictures in my library. The man eating the chips – is that an umbrella sticking out of his bag, or was he just pleased to be at the seaside! :)

    1. Thanks, Whitstable is very photogenic, even on a grey day.
      The guy eating chips, yes, that does seem to be an umbrella sticking out of his bag. I snuck up on him whilst he was absorbed in enjoying the chips.
