Coastal inspiration

My recent move has taken me much closer to the wonderful Yorkshire coast and, even though it’s the middle of winter, I have had some lovely walks with Lucy, my dog. The way on to the beach at Hunmanby gap has some small gabions at the top of the beach. I think these are to break and filter the power of the sea, but they seem a little small to my inexpert  eye.  They do provide a little inspiration and I may produce a small series of pieces related to coastal protection. At this point in the year, after recent record rainfalls, there is more chance of coastal erosion especially along the clay cliffs here locally, the rain running rapidly off the land is constantly washing down chunks of cliff.
