A place to see my world
Raw movement captured here, Richard. Powerful.
Like the unknown perspective here. Looked just like a mud flat, till I noticed the rails which then made sense of the title!
At first I couldn't see what I was looking at but then noticed the rails as Mandy did. It looks as though it won't be long until they have are gone too.
The river had a tidal range of over 30 feet/10M, and 6 feet/2M more on a spring tide so it scrubs really hard in both directions.Here you're only a couple of hundred yards/M upstream from the Avon GorgeThat 'might' be a hint for tomorrow if you know your Bristol geography. ;-)
Thinks hard about her Bristol geography, meanwhile enjoyed this one.
A challenging picture at first glance, and rather menacing after further inspection!
Wow.I don't normally go for the devastation shots. Makes me sad, in part.But this one has an 'awe' about it. And given the facts that you shared--HOLY moly.30 feet?!?!
Yes, over 30 feet... it's one of the highest tidal ranges in the world. Here's a tide table for the mouth of the river: http://www.tidetimes.org.uk/Avonmouth.html
