Thames Estuary View

At the weekend I was in Leigh-on-Sea a town about half an hour from here. It is right on the Thames Estuary. On the way to the station I had to stop and snap a couple of pictures. The one above is from the Saturday, even with the heavy November clouds the view was beautiful.

The colours remind me of a painting..or an artist.. can’t think who, though…

On the Sunday, the sun was shining as I walked to the station and I took a picture from almost exactly the same spot. What a difference it made, the sky and water was so blue! My photo doesn’t do it justice at all. And there was a beautiful golden glow from the sun getting ready to set.

Looking west, upstream towards London. I liked the contrast between the land and the shimmering water…

I am partial to a nice cloudscape. ;-)

    These photos are wonderful, I miss my friends in the UK & the country. England has a special place in my heart. Love Michael Ball.

    These photos are lovely!

    I recently developed a fascination with John Atkinson Grimshaw's work (the way he rendered light makes little cartoon hearts pop up over my head) and the estuary photos reminded me of some of his paintings.
