life through my lens

my passion is travel; my enjoyment photography

A miracle in Viking Bay

I got up at 5:20 today to capture the sunrise in Viking Bay. After taking dozens of photos of the sunrise I set off for a quick walk along Stone Bay beach..such a beautiful day, albeit really windy.

Sunrise on Broadstairs Beach

After messing about for a bit I was kneeling on the sand trying to capture the waves washing up under the boat. Keeping an eye on the waves and my periphery…suddenly I found myself knee deep in water 😂😂😂 blessed wave snuck up behind me. I nearly fell over onto my bottom wirh laughter. Needless to say my trainers, socks, thermal longjohns, trousers et al were soaked through. What a laugh. Just glad I wasn’t lying down like I had been earlier.

sunrise in Viking Bay

I arrived home on Tuesday evening after a two week stint in Great Malvern, and to my annoyance I woke up just after 6:30 this morning (it’s annoying coz when I can sleep late, I don’t LOL). But the benefit of waking early is seeing the sunrise. So after peeking out my window and seeing a pink flush on the clouds I quickly pulled on some clothes, grabbed my camera and keys and dashed down to the esplanade. Although a heavy cloud cover had blown in by then, I was still rewarded with a break in the cloud….

I do love being home. The freedom of just being able to go out when I want to is amazing.
