The totally bizarre effect of sunshine after the rain on a mudflat, the tide rapidly ebbing.
The interesting thing is how much the mud is greening this year, something I didn’t notice at the time of taking the photo. I can find two possible reasons for that. 1: the combination of sea and river waters that twice daily cover these flat no longer rise so high. 2: the water-carried silts that form these flats have accumulated to such a degree the daily tides no long abrade them.
BTW, if you wonder where the birds, they upped at my approach, and settled on several nice places behind me.
BTW#2: I haven’t messed with this photo, I do swear it (I wouldn’t know how)
