With the wet winter of 2013/2014 only a recent memory, the end of May encountered a quieter spell of weather in North Devon and although it was not quite a balmy summer’s day, these few shots were taken without having to shelter from the rain. The picture above is looking out from the north end of Croyde Bay, the sea was gentle this evening, though a thunder storm was passing to the west.
The beautiful thing about being at Croyde in late spring during the evening when there is no surf is that there are very few people about, this picture was taken just after sunset and not single person other than me was on the beach, however, even if there was, the use of a long exposure would probably not have picked them out.
A Sunday walk around Baggy Point gave the opportunity to take a couple of pictures looking out across Morte Bay towards Putsborough and Woolacombe, the day was very clear and the sea very still and although there were many others out on this glorious day, you would not think it from these pictures.
The sky was at times menacing looking, a shower was passing to the west which blocked a lot of the sun’s light, though patches of it’s intense light can be seen bringing the hills and cliff tops to live along this beautiful coastline.
