By MrsS    
Hi All, hope your Wednesday has been better than mine! Managed to go apex over undercarriage on a tarmac surface last night and have therefore spent all afternoon in A&E having x-rays and tetanus jabs! Nothing broken, but really badly bruised, so I have a strapped up hand which I'm supposed to be resting! Wink

Enough of my woes, now for the image. Sorry, couldn't resist taking you back to Happisburgh! The woes of those who live here and are losing their coastline at a huge rate of knots is encapsulated here for me. The metal here is all twisted and vandalised by nothing more than Mother Nature using her power of the waves! Doesn't take much to realise that it's a tad futile to stand in her way! Sad

Have a good evening - - off to rest my hand, so excuse any lack of comments - - I will of course look forward to reading yours! Wink
(Wonder what the chances are of getting MrS to peel me a few grapes?) Tongue

Thanks for looking - - I do promise to catch up soon Smile

A super image , agree Mother nature can be very violent! However this doesn't detract from such a well exposed and composed image , particularly like the water on the rocks and the timing to capture that wave splashing . great sky
Glad to hear that the damage was "only " bruising. keep well.
