The Waiting Room


Photo Information
"One must wait until evening to truly see how magnificent the day must have been"

(Socrates)


Late evening sunlight gilds the rocky bluffs between Muxham Point, Redcove Point and Fernycombe Point on the eastern shore of the mouth of the Erme estuary.
The rocks in the foreshore are those of Owen’s Point on Meadowsfoot Beach (a.k.a. Mothecombe) on the Flete Estate. This rivermouth lies within the South Devon ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’

Thanks ever so much for the encouraging comments from Mohammad, Stridey, Giulio, Derek and Trixie, it was a fine end of a fun afternoon of rock climbing there with my children. There is an accompanying photo made a few minutes later in my latest blog post too

There's nowhere quite like the Erme estuary - we stayed on the Flete estate years ago and fell in love with it. This shot has everything in it for me - composition, gorgeous lighting, sky and softness. A really stunning shot - bravo !

Thanks very much for your encouraging comments Blaze It is one of my favourite beaches for bouldering, surfing or a picnic - it has such character. Must have been wonderful to stay on the estate there and have Meadowsfoot Beach a stone's throw away
