another road ahead

A showery day is a good time to head up to the clifftops and see what drama the weather is creating. It was creating quite a lot, as it happens. You probably need to zoom in a little to see how glassy calm the sea was, with it even reflecting the passing clouds, but the... Continue Reading →
