Colours along the seashore

Welcome to November and some views along this stretch of the English coast. It is so easy to stop, marvel and linger at the ever changing scenery. Over the past two weeks, when these pictures have been taken, there has been such a contrast in colours on our walks along the shore. We have woken to some foggy mornings, which hves produced a grey pallet of colours.

Despite the sunshine, the temperature has fallen too and we noticed lots of woolly hats in evidence along the footpaths this weekend!

The annual fireworks created a different range of colours as they exploded over the sea.

In the countryside the majority of the leaves are still on the branches and the dominant colour is still green.

What are the dominant colours where you live at the moment?

Wishing you a happy week.

  2. Even when the days are grey it is still beautiful in your part of the country. The predominant colour here is gold - even the light seems gold. But it has been all change over the last few days - so much colder and snow forecast - still, it has been a wonderful autumn so I can't grumble really.

  4. Beautiful photos! The first few are very atmospheric and the fireworks collage is great!

  5. Beautiful scenery, indeed. Grey is starting to turn white in Finland but it's so early for the southern parts it probably won't last for long where we live.

  6. I just loved these photos of the seashore. I can almost smell the salty sea air.
    Where I live (Washington state, USA) most the leaves are golden, orange or crimson. Many have fallen from the trees already.

  7. Amazingly beautiful scenes, Sarah. We have a mix of red, yellow, green and brown on our trees right now--and many bare trees now.

  8. Some lovely images Sarah, especially number 2.
    Surprisingly there is still plenty of green around here too, so I think that the Autumn still has a few more weeks to go - at least I am hoping so.

  9. Love those shots, Sarah, especially the first two - so atmospheric. You've reminded me that I must do some posts from our last visit to that lovely part of the world that you're so lucky to live in. The frozen north was doing its thing this morning - frosty day!

  10. Fabulous photos. I particularly liked the first too in the mist. Still quite a few leaves here but I feel all may change quickly as the winds seem to have arrived. Very few fireworks in our neighbourhood this year, I was glad to see yours. Have a good week. B x

  11. What a good photographer you are Sarah. That first shot with the bird! And the subtlety of the colours in those first few shots is magical. Subtle is the word for the changes here to lichen, moss and bracken shades and a hint there may be snow...

  12. Down here the colours are quite similar. We walked yesterday near Brixham and the sea was as blue as in your picture of Lyme. I especially liked your pictures of what I call the "Broadchurch" cliffs with their strikingly sculptured shapes.

  13. Green and gold. Now that the acers and cornus trees have finished, the native beeches and oaks are taking over. Though with the frost their days are also numbered. Sigh.
    Love your images from the coast. Does your proximity to the sea mean you escape the worst of the freezes?

    1. It does tend to be a few degrees warmer by the coast, although it did my feel like it yesterday, it was freezing! Sarah x

  14. Very atmospheric photos, (so glad I'm looking at them on our bigger computer screen!) The last photo takes me right back to visiting little villages in Britain a couple of years ago. We have lots of colour at the moment, and we've had so much rain, the countryside around Canberra looks a little like England (hard to imagine I'm sure!) Enjoy autumn, and may it stay warm for a while yet.

  15. Breathtaking!! Lovely photos! Our colors here are less like Autumn, the trees looks a bit sad without their leaves. Today was another t-shirt weather day again. Thank you for your visit! I am always mesmerized by your photos.

  16. Hi Sarah,

    Love the changing colours of your landscapes, from the moody greys to the lush green grass.
    Beautiful scenery and you live in a gorgeous place in the world.
    Hope you are having a lovely week
    Hugs

  18. Oh Sarah, YOUR PHOTOS ARE AWARD WINNING! Wow, what scenery of silver seas and bucolique countrysides! Thank you for this peaceful moment; I am a bit shocked at our election results and needed this. THANK YOU!

  19. Yellow leaves on the trees and a few reds from the acers which grow well on this acid soil. Beautiful images of November by the sea.

  21. A lovely selection of photos from your autumn. The colours here are still the coppers and golds of autumn

  22. All of those are so glorious and atmospheric! And what brilliant composition.
    Oh how I would love to be there at this time of year - I only ever see it in high summer.
    All the best :)

  23. Lovely photos!
    The colours in my town are golden and bronze and brown and ochre . The colours of autumn.

  25. Love the pictures, especially the last one! I think that if I lived in such a beautiful town, I would never be able to stop exploring. The colors around here are quite foggy and gray, but I am enjoying the cooler weather, for now.:)

  26. Wonderful photos. Lyme Regis looks delightful. Grey skies today but yellow, red and green in the garden to look at for a bit of colour x

  27. Oh my ... what a wonderful collection of photo's.
    An absolute pleasure visiting your blog Sarah.

    Sending good wishes for the coming new week.

    All the best Jan

  28. Oh so very beautiful. (If I have the location right, I was walking below the place where that bench is about three weeks ago but couldn't go far because of landslipping. At this rate we will be without access to our beaches before long - which makes photos like these important as well as lovely.)

    1. Yes Lucy you do have the location right! I was only walking along the same stretch as you this morning! Cliff erosion is a concern especially in this area. Sarah x

  29. The colours up here in Lancashire are green, yellow and orange. The trees are changing colour now and there are some amazing views across the countryside.

  30. What a beautiful pictures of your coastline you've made, so different from the Dutch one. The colours of the trees here are red, yellow and orange. I love the colours but not the rainy and cold weather:(

  31. Thanks for sharing the lovely sights you have been seeing, Sarah. Looking at them is a balm to my soul. On my drive to and from CA recently I was struck by the green and gold pallet of the foliage and the predominantly misty grays of the ocean. xx
