Tuesday Treat: Winter Dunes

We don’t expect to find much of interest in winter on the dunes, swept by salt-laden winds. Yet I did find a few subjects for my lens.

Sea buckthorn. I was surprised at how many berries left though they’ve lost their deep orange shine

And a final photo, one I couldn’t resist, seen on Lowestoft pier…

That’s all for now, folks. Wishing you all Peace, Love & Contentment in the coming year
