Backlit Looe, Towpath and Glisten to the Sea

"Backlit Looe" :- I'd been standing on the beach & taking shots of the sea and rocks as the sun was going down for half an hour or so. I had my back to the coastal town of Looe (in Cornwall) and was completely oblivious to the powerful display that was going on behind. When I eventually turned this was the powerful scene that met my eyes.

"Towpath" :- A bend in the Grand Union Canal curves off as the water reflects the evening light of Milton Keynes. I walked along the towpath for an hour or so , it was very relaxing. The odd boat would chug past one in a while as well as cyclists, dog walkers and joggers. It was all so very peaceful.

"Glisten to the Sea" :- This is the Westerm arm of the huge protective sea wall that wraps Brighton Marina. It was an unusually sunny April day when I ventured down onto the beach at low tide in 2013. I had the beach to myself, nobody was out and about at all. The marina was built between 1971 and 1979, it was an immense feat of engineering and construction. It's huge too as it approximately covers 127 acres (0.51 km2) and provides 1,600 berths as well as having a gym, casino, boat yard, cinema and various bars and restaurants.
