This was a day in early summer. Most of the county was shrouded in cloud, but, according to the forecast, there was some prospect of bright weather over Spurn Head, and so it proved to be. This is of course a very vulnerable few square miles of coastland, significant for its wildlife but also for its place in the navigation of the North Sea and in particular the Humber Estuary. So as I took photographs I came across what seemed to me to be guardians behind which the vulnerability of the land might seek shelter. These nine range from the very sophisticated maritime control base to a tangle of branches. Monochrome just felt right, despite the clear blue sky!
