The Causeway

Posted by
grouser (Ludlow, United Kingdom) on 15 August 2009 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Looking back over the causeway towards the Worm's Head. This fairly long section of seabed is exposed for about two and a half hours either side of high tide, the rest of the time Worm's head is cut off. With rising sea levels this window of opportunity will get smaller and eventually the Worm's Head will be a full time island. The headland shown in yesterday's picture is the faint one in the distance on the left.

That's definately a hike to get out there. Only two and half hours or wait till next tide. I think I'd be stuck out there for a while. It has been a wonderful series. Thank you.

I like the close up of the pool with its sky light reflection. This is a beautiful shot and very appealing. Well done.

Lovely scope: lovely details. And you give us a good sense of how it might be in a couple of hours.

Another impressive image. I see there are a number of visitors - is this the normal state of affairs or where they part of an official tour?

@dobbino: Normal state of affairs, though there were a lot more here than on a previous visit. School hols to blame I suspect

I like how the blues infuse their way thru this shot without unbalancing the color.

i can sit for hours in a tidepool like this, watching all the little sea creatures come out of hiding one by one. the water sometimes rises and falls with an errant wave, and i'll lift a rock to see what's under it. and no doubt, all those creatures are looking back at me, a shadow against a bright sky. can they hear me singing?
