Clevedon Pier at Sunset
Clevedon Pier, Somerset.
Sometimes, amongst taking photographs for my wonderful clients of their pets or children, I like to spend a day going out and taking photographs just for me. It gives me time to reflect and appreciate the beauty that surrounds us that we do not often notice whilst maintaining our busy schedules. So this week, I took myself and my camera to Clevedon to photograph its surroundings.
I admit it - It isn't somewhere I had longed to go - in fact I only really remember visiting once before and it was brief. The truth is, I didn't realise how pretty it was, how beautiful it can be and just how peaceful it was there, especially considering it is just a few miles from me. I love to explore places that I haven't really taken notice of before. I think we often miss the charm that our own towns and cities can have.
For those who aren't familiar, Clevedon is a coastal town in North Somerset, just 13 miles south of Bristol, overlooking the Severn Estuary. It is just 10 miles from Weston Super Mare. The beach has its own pebbly, seaweedy charm and it is perfect for a sunset stroll after a long day.
I stood for a while while the light changed from day to night, and captured the most wonderful colours in the sky, colours which were glowing on the side of the pier. It is only March and people were already having picnics on the beach, splashing in the water in shorts and flip flops. It may look like Summer but my word, it was cold!
This image is my favourite - I love the purple colour of the sky. I love how the water looks like a carpet of waves creeping up slowly to the shore, glistening in the sunlight, and I love the calmness it portrays. Take note of the beauty that surrounds you every single day.
