To Ascot: tide, etc
Thanks, Amelia.
Yes, sometimes the water is right out of this 'haven', as you can see in some of my other photos.
I think it's the white part of the blue boat that's distracting - another time I would darken just that part.
Are you an expert on seaweeds? I noticed you referred to the bladderwrack by its latin name in another post.
I hope you are having warmer air than we have, this week. Not like May at all, but the sun has been blazing. I saw a 'sundog' this evening, presumably caused by volcanic ash?
Best wishes,

Sea weed expert
Dear Winifred, I am not an expert on anything at all :)

However, when I was at Uni, there was a an absolutely wonderful field trip to Aberystwyth, which reinforced my love of the sea, and we did a lot of work on zonation both of seaweeds and barnacles. With the camera I'm using now, I have managed to get a photo of barnacles feeding. It won't be posted on TE as it's a bit too specialised, and the thumbnail is most unprepossessing :)

I am just going out in a minute to take some photos of primroses, which I hope will show the difference between the thrum-eyed and pin-eyed forms.

I don't think I have ever seen a sundog, although I have seen photos of them of course. Did you manage to get a photo?

Warm wishes, Amelia
