The Gallery: Mother Nature

Another great theme for The Gallery this week! I had so many ideas and took some great photos over the weekend but my entry is my favourite one of all - a view of the sea fom the cliffs in Saunton, Devon.

Daisy and I visited our friend in Croyde this weekend. I love getting out of London and do so at every opportunity. My favourite place to be is by the sea and I love the beach in winter so much more than in the summer. The beaches along the North Devon coast are, in my opinion, some of the best in Britain so I was very excited to visit Croyde for the first time.

The weekend was spent eating lovely food, drinking lovely wine and taking lots of walks along the blustery, wintery beach. My idea of heaven. 

Then, when driving home on the Sunday evening we passed this wonderful view and I had to stop to take a photo. It was an unbelievable, stormy day (my favourite kind when it comes to English beaches!) and everything was so windswept that the thick, low clouds looked like mountains on the horizon and it was hard to tell where the sand dunes ended and the sea started.

Mother Nature at her best.



  1. Oooooh! Im cold just looking at this. But you're right, English beaches in a storm are wonderfully atmospheric.
