Ocean Versus Asphalt

  • Description

    The island causeway is impassable two hours before and three hours after high tide. The bay which supports this passage slopes broadly and gently into the ocean, which means the waters rise very quickly when the time comes. This image depicts the northern approach to Lindisfarne disappearing under the sea. A hasty retreat to the safety of land was made immediately after this shot was captured!
