Outer Hope

Spring (March) – The smaller beach (Mouthwell Sands) at Hope Cove, Devon, England

A glorious day at Mouthwell Sands (also known as Outer Hope) on a lovely sunny, but cold march day. Spring is upon us, the sea is calm and the sky is blue.

Sun & the Sea

May – Spring is almost over. Beautiful weather, but a cold northerly wind blows across the beach.

Spring Maize

Spring Maize

One month old maize sown under plastic. Is it a bad environmental process?

Is it Biodegradable?

  • If it’s actual plastic it only degrades to smaller bits of plastic (not biodegradable!). Over several years, the minute particles eventually get washed into rivers, which then transports the particles into the sea.
  • If it’s plastic made from from plants (often maize) the conditions have to be right for it to degrade properly (composting). To compost this material, you need to have the right conditions. A high temperature, sunlight and the correct process (often industrial). Otherwise the composting can take a very, very long time 1, 2.

Cloud, Evening Sun, Wind and Rain

Autumn (October) – The Evening Sun, Clouds, Wind and Rain Over Stoke Climsland Church

A wet bright autumn day looking towards the parish church in the village of Stoke Climsland. I was walking down Pound Lane towards the parish church, there was a lovely reflection of the sun, from the fresh rain on the road and building roofs. The sun shining above the church kind of has an effect, even for the non religious amongst us…
