High tide

Posted by
Spike (not Bristol, United Kingdom) on 7 February 2011 in Landscape & Rural.

The new moon (gong hey fat choi!) brings another spring tide. I didn't manage to make it on Saturday, when the wind was still gusting to 55 mph (88 kph), so I had to settle for Sunday morning, when the wind was rather lighter. While the water was choppy, there weren't the heavier waves I was half-expecting. Perhaps that's just as well.

The steps in the foreground are my usual vantage point - it seemed sensible to wait a few minutes for the water to drop a step or two. :-)

Thanks for stopping to take a look.
