As promised last week, I’ve a few extra snaps of my weekend in Clevedon to share. The seaside escape gave me a chance to immerse in some landscape photography again – something I’ve missed greatly since finishing my course. A moody afternoon combined with disappearing landscapes and a personal re-eneacment of One Direction’s You & I video – it was filmed on the Clevedon pier don’t you know? – gave me the perfect opportunity to get snapping some atmospheric image to bring back my love of photography again.
The town itself is typical South West beach style, lots of small shops and cafes for tea overlooking the pier and sea. The day we visited was quite overcast, thus creating some gorgeous atmospheric images – a photographer’s dream if ever there was one. The sea and sky merged into a bleak somber shade of greige, yet the pastel painted buildings lit up the edge of the pier and guided us along to the pier to look out into the horizon.
The pier is currently going under restoration, however it’s still worth the visit and the £1.80 entry to help support a community’s landmark as the view is lovely (even on a dull day). It feels ever so slightly like Brighton pier when you’re walking along, feeling the waves and sea air whipping up around you in the only way the cold British weather could.
I made sure to grab my Niall photo opportunity by jumping up on the benches lining the pier, however the drop right behind them put me off making too much effort in my step – it’s a long way down to the rocks below…
Despite the slightly cool and damp weather, my Misguided coat (similar here, and on sale) kept everything down to my legs protected from the wind – a brilliant piece to take you through our very varied seasons at the moment, so glad I picked this up, perfect for casual exploring and making a basic outfit look fifty times more stylish – always a perk when you live in stripes and jeans!
Weekends by the sea, you can’t really get much better than that can you? This definitely gave me a taste for some more beachside trips once the weather starts to brighten up more, perhaps Brighton is on the cards again – definitely need to get my pier and photography fix as soon as possible…
Are you planning any seaside trips this year? Do you like my take on 1D’s music video? What’s your perfect weekend at home or away?
Lots of Love,
