    • Likewise. The first line of physical defence in WW2 is what General Sir Edmund Ironside referred to at the time as the ‘Coastal Crust’ which sounds more like a bakery to me!

      • I also agree. Barrow Flats IV is fab. Love the bands of fading colours and barely being able to perceive the sea/sky interface. The two diagonal lines are also very striking.

      • There’s something special about Berrow: very shallow tide revealing a deep very long beach and with high vantage point of Brean Down
