Sea Fog

This young boy reminded me of my young grandson in the way he solemnly surveyed the sea on one of the coastal foggy days recently.

A blogging friend of mine once said how much she loved my ‘signature’ ant people as I photograph beaches from the cliff tops. So here’s a recent one for her. Godrevy beaches all joined up at low tide, September 27
