A Few Birds & Sea Creatures

Genesis 1:21-22 The Voice 

God: 20 Waters, swarm with fish and sea creatures. Let birds soar high above the earth in the broad expanse of sky.

21 So God created huge sea creatures, all the swarm of life in the waters, and every kind and species of flying birds—each able to reproduce its own kind. And God saw that His new creation was beautiful and good. 22 And God spoke this blessing over them:

God: Be fruitful and multiply. Let creatures fill the seas. Let birds reproduce and cover the earth.

I took this photo whilst walking around the market place in Epsom, Surrey.

Epsom Clock Tower was built in 1847, replacing the watchhouse which stood from the 17th century, and was built to 70 feet of red and suffolk brick, with heraldic lions of Caen Stone at the four corners of the tower base.

Snettisham Beach

Description

Snettisham Beach Sunset was taken in Norfolk in September 2006 on holiday with Sarah and Bruce. It’s a place I wanted Sarah to see, as I have many happy memories of childhood holidays here. I love to go down to the beach, especially at sunset to capture the beautiful colours as the sun sinks into the sea. I’ve taken many since, but this is still one of my favourites.
