The first taken last Christmas – the pebble ridge in winter:
This one taken in heavy rain at 1045 this morning – the pebble ridge in summer:
Lands End to St Davids Head including the Bristol Channel

Inshore waters forecast
24 hour forecast: 1900 Fri 17 Jul 1900 Sat 18 Jul
Wind Westerly or northwesterly becoming cyclonic, 5 to 7, decreasing 4 in north.
Sea state Moderate or rough, but slight in east.
Weather Rain or showers.
Visibility Moderate or good, occasionally poor.
This is this evening’s inshore waters forecast. It was right for the whole day.
The heavy rain has swollen the river and once again altered the shape of the pebble ridge, the same ridge that presented such a peaceful scene last December.
This is the weather that makes this coast exciting and invigorating.
The only problem is that this is July. Why can’t it wait until the Autumn?
