I'm a bit grumbled to see hedging planted all the way along here on both sides - it's going to spoil the open character of the place to drive along with no view.
.. at least there should still be a view at the end!
The state of Portelet
.. boarded up and vandalised cafe.
Someone's got waaaaaay too much money :)
Such a shame a roadway down to the bay is privately owned. Imagine being able to drive down there? It would still be a popular beach. Inshore rescues would be so much easier. The States should have compulsory-purchased it years ago!
A better viewpoint to see where the old Holiday Village used to be - soon to be more luxury housing.
.. like the new stuff up there on the skyline where the old Bergerac Hotel used to be.
Not the best shot of the bay - the sun was inconveniently in the wrong place...
.. the other direction was better lit.
That looks like somewhere I may to go exploring when weather, tides, and health permits :)
My pics? What can I say... but that there are two types of photographers : artists and recordists. I'm a recordist - for me it's a technical challenge to try to capture what the eye sees, rather than what the imagination sees. I'm no artist.
My camera is good enough for the web, I'm not interested in spending a fortune on DSLR and lenses, mucking about in pic editors, filters and all that malarkey.
I'm also driven to share, publish, and show things to people when they're interested in specific things - like island scenery. If I was into art, I'd despair at just how much there is out there already, and how difficult it would be to find an audience because no-one has time to wade through billions of pretty pictures.
If you want to see what Jersey looks like, then hang around here and I'll do my best to show you. Thanks!
