An early morning trip to Herne Bay towards the end of summer brought beautiful pastel colours to the skies as the sun rose. This long exposure shot softens the gentle waves to meet the soft colours in the sky.
The wooden groyne leads the eye out to the landing stage now deserted some 1,100m offshore. Originally the end of the pier opened in 1899, it was separated from the remainder (and current pier) in a storm in 1978. Today, further beyond, we can now see a wind farm on the horizon, so the landing stage is no longer the boundary of mans reach from the shore.
