Beachy Head

Beachy Head

The great chalk headland with dangerous cliffs & the wide open landscape with hills of East Sussex, England. Beachy Head has the highest chalk sea cliff of Britain. Here a selection of photos shot at that place. For all photos visit the flickr album Beachy Head.

Beachy Head – 9km Eastbound Hike from Birling Gap.

Bad weather for the first few hours but it got better by time…

An old letter box. I am currently attracted to vintage style and everything that is analogue & mechanical.

Watch out! It’s dangerous!

Pretty dangerous cliffs. Along the cliffs there were a lot of wreaths for people who died.

The wide open landscape with hills. British Tuscany or British Provence? 😀

Some creative hikers. Let’s start singing:
“You are my Sunshine,
My only Sunshine.
You make me happy,
When skies are grey.
You’ll never know dear,
How much I love you.
So please don’t take,
My Sunshine away.” 😀

Yep, it’s that crazy with the altitude along the cliffs. Up, down, up, down, up, down and so on… Let’s keep walking! Hooray!!!

It was trying to snatch some food. When you left your table it flew onto the table and picked food.

Returning back to Birling Gap to our rental car. It’s still a loooong way to go.

This is so beautiful. We were at the right place at right time. Perhaps ‘The Decisive Moment’ that the French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson described in his book.

Low tide.

Two men went out to the sea ground during low tide. They were taking photos of the sky with their smartphones.
