... well, by the English Channel.

It was a sunny saturday and we visited our daughter who currently lives in Brighton and went for a walk along the esplanade. Gave me an oportunity to photo something other than a red kite!

On 15 Jan a cargo ship, the Ice Prince, sunk off the Devon coast. She was carrying over 5,000 tons of sawn timber; some of which is still being cleared of the beach:



Some of it could pass as a piece of modern art



I've certainly seen worse!

As I said, I also got the chance to photograph birds that weren't red kites. Of course, the sea equals gulls. A lot of people don't like them but I have a sneaky admiration for them as they really seem to enjoy themselves:






Crows I get at home but this one seemed very pleased with himself




And finally, I cannot resist the arty shot towards the sun:



All in all, a very pleasant Satursday


Keith

Thanks for sharing, Keith!

We've had a nice day here too today, for once. It's been a springish feeling in the air, yesterday was the warmest february day since they started saving statistics, and today has been just as fine or even better. I got a lot of thisandthatstuff done in the garden. Nothing as photogenetic as yours, though. Hopefully it will be later, I've put up seven nesting boxes for small birds amongst other things.

Nice work Kieth. Interesting shotsof the lumber jammed into the sand. Could anyone take it? You're right, seagulls and crows seem to really injoy life! Hope your days continue warm and relaxing!

You had a good time. That can pass as some kind of urban art.
At least clearing timber is not as hazardous as clearing oil.
