Seven Sisters

This is a well-known viewpoint on Seaford Head but it took me three years to get this shot as I wanted it. The setting sun is in exactly the right position to cast dramatic shadows on the chalk cliffs only in late May and again in late July. On only a few days during those periods does high tide coincide with sunset, so that the sea reaches the base of the cliffs. A further constraint was that the Coastguard Cottages had been under scaffolding for an extended period! On this May evening, the scaffolding had gone and calm water gave a pleasing reflection of the cliffs.
