Wandering around the Teign estuary


It has been far too long since I got out with the camera. A number of factors have affected the past few weeks but mainly it has been that the weather has really been very poor for photography with a lot of wet grey days. These images may not be all that exciting however they do reflect quite well a cold windy day with odd bursts of sunshine on the estuary of the river Teign.  The above image looks up the estuary from Coombe Cellars.  The wind was blowing waves onto the small beach and Dartmoor can be seen in the distance.

Running into the river just here is a small stream which emerges from  a marshy area.  The reeds were moving quite a bit in the wind however the sunlight was catching them,

The above image is taken from Shaldon looking across the river Teign towards Teignmouth.  At the time there was a patch of winter sun and the tide was going out fast as can be seen in the image.

Having travelled down the southern side of the estuary I then went back on the northern side.  This is taken looking down the estuary towards the mouth from the Passage House Inn area close to Newton Abbot.

And finally…  Also at the Passage House Inn some geese were feeding in the faint afternoon sunlight on the river Teign just below Newton Abbot.
