Yes I can Amelia! Impressive resolution! ;-)

I can also see that Good ol' England is getting constantly smaller and the population density is increasing. Maybe you should be glad to live in the inland. ;-))

A very nice and describing shot! Well done! Like!

Hugs and greetings,

Thank you for opening this unimpressive thumbnail Per - I'm glad you could read the sign. Not a pretty sight is it? This east coast of Norfolk was badly affected by the storms at the beginning of December, but was let off lightly during the January storms. The rainfall has done some terrible damage. We had a lovely walk in both directions along the beach, being careful that James wasn't too near the cliff face of course.

Hugs to Sola from a cold and damp Shropshire, Amelia

Wonderful shot Amelia. But I,ll be long gone before it has any real effect LOL, cheers scally from glasgow.

Amelia Royan on March 3, 2014

You'd be gone even sooner if you stood on the cliff top Scally. LOL

Could you read the sign, or do you need another visit to the optician? I'm sure your good wife will open her purse to pay for new specs. I know your sporran is fastened tight shut!

Cheers to Glasgow from Shropshire, Amelia

I can read the sign and will keep my distance ~ standards are slipping it seems ~~~ xx

Amelia Royan on March 9, 2014

Everything is slipping apart from your eyesight dear Nick. It is sad to see these cliffs falling onto the beach. Would you like to rent a static caravan here? Although it's not possible to see them from the beach, I wouldn't be surprised if one or two tumbled down from the cliff top soon.

"By the time you read this sign it is already to late" ;)

Well spotted Amelia.

Hello dear Amelia YEP! Ive read the sign! but ooops! THAT cliff edge has slipped away huh? How so sad...don't I see caravans/campers up there on the edge of this thing, when enlarged? thanks for sharing this Amelia, BE CAREFUL UP THERE or DOWN there, another cliff might slip!

warmest greetings/hugs ~~Sarah~~

Amelia Royan on March 13, 2014

I hope no-one leans over this cliff to try and read the sign Mick. or they might become late too. ;-)

Thanks for your valuable visit.

Warm wishes to Dublin, Amelia

Like+, my dear friend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good morning dear Sarah, another sharp-eyed visitor! :))

As you can see, this fragile coastline has taken a beating during our terrible winter, and cliffs were falling down before our very eyes. We certainly don't stand too close to the cliff edge on the top, and keep well away from the cliffs when we're on the beach.

Warm hugs to across the pond, Amelia

Amelia Royan on March 13, 2014

Thank you Nikos. This is not a pretty photo, but a record of events on this part of the English coast. Our very stormy winter has caused a lot of damage to these fragile cliffs.

Cheers, Amelia

Greetings, Amelia! The sign 'Danger Cliff Edge' (no visible punctuation marks))is now a telling archeological artifact. The bigger, invisible sign is 'Things Will Never Be The Same Here'.
I feel for the people connected to this area - 'sad' doesn't even begin to describe it... Your series on the subject conveyed the state of thing vividly and objectively.
Best regards - B.

A little further around the top you have The Wash, but here we have The Washed Away. A "sign" of the times, perhaps.

A "Not Nice" shot, if you know what I mean, but well spotted and taken.

"Danger cliff edge"


Amelia Royan on March 19, 2014

Nothing ever really stays the same Boris, but this change has been rapid and very destructive. The winter storms and heavy rain have been devastating, and the folks who have static caravans (you can see them on the GE map) will have to think seriously about getting them moved. The photos are not pretty, but they are a record of events.

Thank you so much for your insightful comment.

Best wishes, Amelia

Amelia Royan on March 19, 2014

Thanks Keith. I know exactly what you mean by a 'not nice shot'. It is a tragedy really, and of course the coastal walk is now dangerous. Fences have been tumbling down cliffs. We saw the cliff in the process of falling before our very eyes when we were there!

Cheers, Amelia

Amelia Royan on March 21, 2014

Would you care to take a walk along the top of the cliff with me Teresa? Or maybe you'd rather walk along the beach near to the sea! ;-)

Thank you for your visit and 'like'.

Greetings, Amelia
