Along the sea front in Aberavon, South Wales
« on: June 13, 2012, 05:57:40 PM »
The weather hasn't been fantastic in my part of Wales but we have been spared (touches wood) the severe flooding that other parts of the country have suffered. 

I took a stroll down to the beach with my camera and my new CZ 35mm lens to put it through its paces out and about:

Looking towards the harbour across the sand:

Looking over the sea defences into the Bristol Channel:

Along the front there are a few art sculptures funded by local government.  I call this one, The Squiggle

On my way back I walked along the sand and caught site of someone's sand drawing of a plane

The last picture made me smile.  The others will be there tomorrow, the plane in the sand will be gone when the next tide rolls in.

Very true!

Down by the beach at Aberavon again (taken a few days ago)
