Kilve Beach - February 2010

It's about time I posted some photos. The weather has been, how can I put it, interesting for the past couple of months and I really haven't had much chance to get out with my camera. A couple of week-ends ago, fearful that my aperture might heal up, I braved the cold and went to one of my favourite places, somewhere I have photographed many times before, Kilve Beach. Kilve is an astonishing place. It sits on the Somerset coast of the Bristol Channel and on a clear day such as this you can see the Welsh coast. The rock formations at Kilve are spectacular and I remember going there often as a child to search for, and find, fossils.

The rock shelves at Kilve are remarkable.

 


 


 


 


 


 


 
All of these sloping rock shelves are covered when the tide is in, and are a great place to walk when it's out.

 


 
The gout of steam in this photo is from the local steam train that runs between Bishops Lydeard and Minehead.
