After a day of low cloud on Monday the weather improved on Tuesday to provide light cloud and sunshine by late afternoon. At dinner I decided to pass on my pudding and set off with my kit to Plemont Bay and see what sunset brought. I checked the tidal runes and saw that the tide was rising but I reckoned that there would be enough time to work the beach before the light went and the sea covered the sand.
Whilst on holiday in Jersey I decided to book a trip out to Les Minquieres (The Minkies) which is a group of islands about 12 miles south of Jersey and is the most southerly place in the UK. Maitresse Island is the largest island and is the only one to have buildings and summer visitors. It boasts the most southerly public toilet in the UK
It is many years since I was on holiday with my family in Jersey and I was far too young to have any taken any photographs to aid my memory.
Having undertaken quite a lot of research I decided that the most fruitful areas for sunset photography would be La Corbiére Lighthouse in the southwest corner and Plémont beach in the northwest. These are the two locations for these photographs.
