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.

    Wow, stunning capture Don.

  • On this trip today, I captured 180 shots from different beaches and the surrounding countryside of East Sussex and the coast. As the rain clouds cleared away, the sun was warm and the day was perfect. I love it when there are clouds in the sky, it always seems more interesting to me. Hope you had an equally wonderful day my friend. God bless. Don.

    Ah yes, Birling Gap and the days of my youth! Great memories. I know I took photos on my Box brownie but they pall into insignificance against these of yours – such a wonderful sight and so very well taken. All the best, Peter.
    PS – Did you know our friend Rod had a heart attack a couple of days ago? Chris wrote me. Happily he is OK but we won’t hear much from him for a little while.

  • Hey there Peter, Firstly, I’m so saddened to hear about poor Rod, he’s been a real encouragement to me over the years since WebShots and here on RedBubble too. I do hope that he makes a full recovery. Do you have some contact details so that I can pass a message or card to him and his wife Chris? It would be great if you could BMail them to me, cheers mate. I’ve written him a BMail, but don’t know if he’ll be able to read it yet.

    Birling Gap What a place Peter, you’d love it here mate. The weather was on my side, the rain cleared and the sun shone, a bit too hot really, but it was great light.
    Thanks for your comments and encouragement Peter, and for letting me know about Rod. God bless you mate and I hope you have an equally wonderful day. Don.
