Winter on Sark
The weather so far this year has been fairly typical of the season with some stormy days and a fair amount of rain but we’ve also had some much appreciated winter sunshine too. I’ve been out and about with my camera in an attempt to capture something of the spirit of Sark’s landscape in the winter. A highlight was watching the sun set over the Coupée and Little Sark, a view you only get in the winter before the sun starts setting much further to the west. The low winter light perfectly highlighted the wonderfully rich colours in the rock and dry grasses. Another walk took me to the other end of the island to L’Eperquerie Common where the newly renovated Mer Tower created a lovely focal point on a calm day. Nearby, a view of the camel’s head rock and the west coast of the island beyond was beautifully lit the day after. Last weekend was wild and stormy so I ventured down to Port du Moulin to watch the waves pounding in from the west. I managed a few photos before another squall hit but it was well worth the soaking I received on the way home. It all goes to prove that Sark can be just as magical in the winter as it is in the summer!
