Winter willows pen and ink the skyline in simple magnificence. How many times do we pass by and not see?

Meanders in the mud

When the tide recedes and the estuary empties there is nothing much to see…or rather nothing much to distract from the patterns left in the mudflats. These ripple formations make interesting studies for geologists and physicists, as well as being an endless fascination for me and my camera.

An old friend

Here she is again. A favourite muse for the camera. We’ve been visiting her through the decade or so of our walks along the Deben. The setting is timeless; one of waders and gulls living off the ebb and flow of the tidal river. On the opposite bank Sutton Hoo changes with the season, appearing much the same though in late autumn as on this warm mid-February day. The boat’s decay is slow and sure. It’s only natural. Alas, one of us can no longer come to see.
