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.

  1. That picture does, indeed, speak a thousand words. It’s beautiful (even if ominous).


  2. “Après moi, le deluge” – we have the same saying in German, only I didn’t know it orginated from a French king. Fitting though… Thanks for enlightening me 🙂


    • Interesting as it is attributed to Louis XV after the battle of Rossbachin when French forces were defeated by the Prussians! It reminds me of Emperor Claudius’ resigned statement: “Let all the poison that lurks in the mud, hatch out.”” (Robert Graves)

  3. Interesting image…the color of the water and how the currents invite my eyes to the horizon.


Feedback is food for thought....
