I took up photography when I retired. I photograph a wide variety of things with nature and macro being at the forefront. I am fascinated by the intricate detail in tiny insects and bugs. I wanted to write a blog to share some of the beautiful places I have visited and the wildlife (mostly miniature) I have photographed.
Walton became popular as a seaside resort during the Victorian era when people were able to travel by train and boat to the destination. There was a decline in its popularity after the second world war.

The Naze Tower, built in 1720, is a historic 86ft navigational tower built to aid shipping. It now houses a tea room, art gallery, museum and a roof viewing platform with amazing panoramic views.

Large parts of the Naze have eroded away over the years at a rate of 1 - 2 metres a year. The pill-boxes from the second world war have fallen from the cliffs and now lay on the beach.
If erosion continues at the same rate it is likely in 50 years time the Naze Tower will be lost to the sea and the Naze might become an island.
