To the beach! A summer holiday cry the world over. Here, near the south coast we are lucky that this doesn't need much in the way of planning - in this case a short hop to Lymington to pick up a rib and then a quick wind in the hair blast to a favourite spot by Hurst Castle. What is it about the sea that lifts the spirits? Why is the seaside so associated with childhood? Looking back at our own family albums nothing evokes such a feeling of nostalgia as those back views of our children atop a mound of sand, looking out to the horizon as the incoming tide begins to swirl around their castle. This shoot was all about the lovely south coast light, burning off some energy and generally having a bit of fun.
