Seven Sisters from Birling Gap: East Sussex, UK.
Camera Nikon D700 with 24-120mm Lense.
At last Birling Gap The place that I originally set out for. However, the few deviations on route were worth it today. Fields of corn and poppys, more fields of hay bales lookin like shredded wheat, stunning views of Seaford and the Old Fort, then onto Seven Sisters Country Park and a bit further I arrived here at Birling Gap a few house later than intended. The sun was hight in the sky, not really much good for photography we’re told. I honestly prefer the very early light of the morning or the light just before sunset, but these white cliffs were a challenge to be appropriate in a balanced way. My Nikon seemed to be handling them quite well from the viewfinder. The light was really too bright to check them in any detail though. As usual, I had to wait until I could see them on the computer to realise the full impact of beauty that had be captured.
It’s quite a descent to the beach down some wooden stairs, there’s an old boat propped up against the cliff face (a future pic), but for ages I just stared and soaked up the atmosphere where countless millions have been before me, enjoying, photographing, painting, and dreaming. What a view. I’m definitely going to try and come back in the early hours for magical hours of light in this special place.
