POM: September 2019

Ominous signs over Pegwell Bay. Nimbus clouds do more than threaten but being soaked on windy days is logically a short-lived discomfort and despite it all, I enjoyed a few days break, with walks on the Kent coast.

“Après moi, le deluge” – the French king Louis’ declaration could not be more appropriate to this month, especially beginning as it did with the tail-end of Atlantic hurricane Dorian and just at the Autumn equinox, with hurricane Humberto’s finale bringing further downpours and heavy winds. There were of course some brighter sunny times in-between but summer 2019 has not been at its best.

Pick of the Month: Marking the passing of the month with one photo though not always saving the best till last.
