#Wordless Wednesday ~ Cliff Fall

Hello out there, dear photography lovers. How are you today? I hope life and your camera is treating you well ;-) .

Today will be my last Wordless Wednesday post for a whole month. February is dedicated to a blog event over at my Wordpress blog "The Bee Writes..." which is called "Love Is In Da Blog". For a whole month, I offer a prompt a day that loosely has to do with love. The participants can find a love song to that prompt and write a post about it. Then we link back or share the link in the comments on my prompt post, and we can discover wonderful new blogs and music. It would be lovely to meet you there. Feel free to find out more from old "Love Is In Da Blog" posts here.

I live in North Norfolk, UK with my husband, his children and a rescue greyhound. We are so lucky to live close to a beautiful beach where we often walk the dog. I have often blogged about it before.

A couple of weeks ago we had a big surprise though. A considerable part of the cliff came down, and the beach was closed down for a couple of weeks. On top of the cliff is a caravan park and one family had to be relocated as their caravan teetered right on the cliff edge. It is terrifying to see coastal erosion happening so close.

Last week was the first time we went back and had a close look at what came down, and I thought I'd share my photos with you.

This is how it looked like on January 6th, 2020, the day the cliff came down

These signs appeared everywhere after the beach opened up again on January 19th, 2020

This is how it looked like on January 16th, 2020. A lot more had come down by then.

This is the caravan that had to be evacuated. Picture was taken on January 6th, 2020

You can see how the sea defences were just flattened

This is a pole that usually stands upright to hold sea defences in place

This pole poking out of the sand would stand upright like those in the right of the image

I took this picture to give you an idea of how thick and strong the wood of the sea defences is

Please stay safe if you walk along any beach that is affected by coastal erosion. All this happens in an instant and you have no time to get away when it comes down.Thanks.

Hello dear people of the blogosphere, how's it going? I hope your life rocks and if not that there is a human being to embrace you, a big bar of chocolate and a tune that cheers you up. You can do it no matter what challenge you are facing!!!!

 Today I just want to share one photo with you. This was the sunrise on December 11th, 2019 over Trimmingham beach facing towards Mundesley in the UK. I hope this makes you feel as hopeful as it does me.

#WordlessWednesday ~ Sun Rises

Hello out there, how are you doing? I hope you and yours are well and if not feel positive and healing energy coming your way. It’s not something I just say: I pray every day for this planet and all its inhabitants and send out love and healing. This is very important to me because we need more positivity all around.

I know my wordless posts are not particularly wordless but hey: life is short so let’s give each other as positive and healing messages as we can :-).
It’s coming close to the shortest day of the year at least here in the Northern Hemisphere so I thought I share some pictures of the sunrises of 2019. Enjoy!
