As on land, the seasons also pass on the shoreline. Noticed by less people here, and nowhere near as flamboyant as the yellows and reds of the autumn trees, but still it’s there. The passing of the seasons and the cycle of life it brings. It is now too warm for the algae and the brilliant flourescent green has died to a dull tinted white.
It now has a different beauty, and before we know it the rocks will change from this black and white chequerboard back to their sandstone colouration.
