Taken in the fast changing environment of Brook Bay on the Isle of Wight, where high tides continue to erode the soft mud and fossilised forest at a fast pace. A great place for fossil hunting (although I found nothing but pieces of fossilised tree which quickly disintegrates when dry), it also leaves a long flat beach area to explore.
Here we can see the sun setting over the channel, looking south-west towards Cherbourg, with the tide turning and starting to come back in. Although silent and stealthy, the tide can just be seen in the break against the horizon, rushing through the gap. Within 10 minutes, the area where I was perched was completely submerged.
