Braving the Elements ....

weekend fisherman wait patiently for a catch along the coast at Dungeness in Kent. The Kent headland is well known for its nuclear power station which dominates the shingle landscape. Scattered along side this isolated stretch of coast people reside in small wooden chalet style houses. There are no fences to outline land ownership and gardens seem to house a mismatch of plants, decaying boats and sculptures made out of beach finds.

Sitting comfortably next to this area is Romney Marshes. This salt marsh supports a variety of birds and is home to many different types of fauna. Some of which are considered rare. It's a fascinating place to visit. On a day like today, the wet misty grey weather brings a strong dramatic feel to this unusual and haphazard area of land.


  1. I love the fishermen in the distance, your eye is drawn to them and I love the dramatic white on the shorelines, a great and dramatic shot.

  2. Thank you so much for the wonderful words with this shot! I love the image, but the words just make it that much more interesting.

  3. This is beautiful Laura, and so perfect in black and white!

  4. I love these types of landscape - flat, windy, filled with wild life. Probably why I like Norfolk & Suffolk so much. I agree with Justine about your eye being captured by the fishermen - it's a great composition. And thank you for your tip about the Mahonia - I've written it down :-)

  5. A really atmospheric shot - gorgeous in black and white!

  6. hello! th weather doesn't look the best but it makes a great photo!
