Silloth breakwater in rain, Cumbria,

The rain has been relentless for a few days, so there is no time for niceties in selecting places to get out of the wind and rain when they present themselves. With my hood up sheltering under a bush dog walkers in the pretty rose garden in Silloth give me a wide berth as I boil water for my lunch.

Grune Point I, Cumbria.

On Grune head, the small pebbles are mounded by the waves delineated neatly against the sand. In places the pattern is so playful and systematic it takes a moment to realise the arrangement is the tide and not human.

  1. Beautiful pictures as usual! The second one is so lovely! The glassy and wavy surfaces of the water blend perfectly with the sky and clouds.

Whether you have comments on the photos, some knowledge or a personal story on this area you’d like to share, or you’ve spotted a typo or error, I’d love to hear your thoughts.
