Low Tide at Mersey Island

By RoyBoy  
This image was taken at West Mersey, an island off the coast of Essex, which is joined to the mainland via a causeway and only inaccessible at high tides.
This part of the island is the most populated and provides easy access to the area used by both the commercial and pleasure boating fraternity. The views are continually changing due to the comings and goings of the boats and also the state of the tides and that washed up. As such each visit to the same place is different, this being one example.

OK this is my first visit and comment on ephotozine. I havn't chosen one of your best images Roy but it is very typical of West Mersea (not West Mersey). I think the foreground is very dull and uninteresting. Also think the red buoy would have been better on the r/h side. It is amazing how those birds flew all the way out of that fantastic image in Suffolk to muddy West Mersea without changing their formation.

Yes Roy, I have to agree with Kate, those birds do look very familiar!
