Rocky Shores

No matter what your background is, no matter where you come from, one thing that most people will agree on, is that we all love the coast.

From its wide-open expanses of sand to its cruel and jagged rocks, the seaside brings out the emotions that is for sure.

I love to explore the shoreline when I visit the coast - there is so much to see and enjoy and this next set of images captures some of those sights.

Rock Pool

Rock Pool

Small rock pools form at low tide, capturing small creatures for a few hours and the crystal clear waters allow you to follow them as they scurry across the rocks.

Barnacles and Limpets

Of course, the rock pools can only reach so far, and eventually, the creatures need to secure themselves until the waters return. Small rough-edged barnacles and super strong limpets cling to a rock wall here.

Pebbles

Pebbles

Over the years, the wind and the sea batter the shores and all that lies there on it - the larger rocks get broken up and form smaller shards and pebbles all along.

Driftwood

When something enters the sea and it floats, there is a good chance that somewhere along the line, it will be washed up - nothing more familiar along the coast than driftwood - evidence of some burning here too, maybe a beach fire far far away?

Seaweed

The green weed found in the sea comes in all shapes and sizes and it clings and grows on the most unlikely of surfaces. This large smooth pebble looks like is has grown green hair!
