Oh I do like to be beside the seaside....


On my way home from work on Saturday (21 April, 2012) I was treated to the most extraordinary skies as a storm front passed a mile or so off the coast. The clouds coloured like the second day of a bad bruise with yellows, purples, greens and black. Bright sunshine followed as the front passed, causing a glimmer of rainbow out at sea.


The rain fell in illuminated sheets, sweeping through the offshore wind farm.


It's easy to see why Turner drew so much inspiration from the skies along the east Kent coastline.

Thank you so much Mark, glad you like them. The skies here are without doubt my favorite thing about living on the coast.
