On the 27th December we put on many layers of clothes and left the house! After 3 days at home it was a much needed breath of fresh air and where better to go than the seaside! (Mainly because I signed up to a new Coast to Coast loop linking up with other photography friends who like to take photos of beautiful coastlines all around the world!
We got out of our PJs and headed to Eastbourne in the sunshine where the kids rode their bikes along the promenade then we ran down to the shore where the tide was low enough to give us gorgeous reflections and I played with my prism at sunset too!
I even had a play about with slow shutters despite leaving my tripod at home. Some more successfully than others, I'm quite impressed with how still the twins managed to stay for some of these!
1/5th second (we all moved!)
Such a fun afternoon out and I felt SO alive after this trip, it's been so long since I got properly creative and took photos just for fun! I'm so grateful to this loop for the push to head to the coast - it was definitely restorative and good for the soul!
"The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient. To dig for treasures shows not only impatience and greed, but lack of faith. Patience, patience, patience, is what the sea teaches. Patience and faith. One should lie empty, open, choice less as a beach—waiting for a gift from the sea." Anne Morrow Lindbergh, from A Gift from the Sea.
Welcome to our Coast to Coast loop. We are a group of photographers from around the world, from timezones as far flung as Australia to Canada and in between, each with a different seascape. Coast to Coast aims to document our changing sea views and perspectives - both literal and philosophical - of what the sea means to us, month to month through the changing seasons.
