Just to remind you that we did have some sunshine recently, here is some pix I took over the Xmas hols, showing some great places in Essex...
|Stunning blue skies at St Peter's Chapel at Bradwell-on-Sea.
|The wind farm at Bradwell, creating eerie silhouettes against a dramatic winter sky.
|Bateman's Tower in Brightlingsea, which is leaning over a bit, could be the bracing North Sea air!
|Looking over the 1930s lido at Brightlingsea towards a line of brightly coloured beach huts.
|The tide was definitely out at Brightlingsea, but the mud creates amazing patterns.
|A classic Essex coastal scene, heading out of Brightlingsea, with marshes, flatlands and huge skies.
|Abandoned boat at Paglesham, which I've often taken pictures of before!
|Gorgeous beach hut at Shoebury.
|A Christmas Day sunset over Southend pier.
