SOMERSET LEVELS 245 – THE VIEW SOUTH: THE MOUTH OF THE BRUE 2
November 1, 2015 14 Comments
The mud banks and last lazy meander of the River Brue, south of Burnham-On-Sea; 12 Oct 2015.
The muddy and very sluggish waters of the Brue occupy the centre of the frame, curling round to top left before abruptly veering right between scalloped banks to flow out into the much larger estuary of the River Parrett.
So, the coast of the Somerset Levels – the second largest wetland in the UK after the East Anglian Fens – flat, lush and with lots and lots of mud. But here we are almost at the Levels’ southern edge, and hills of harder and much older rocks can just be seen off to the south; their slopes start to rise from not far behind that distant misty shore.
The first version of this view, in black and white, can be found here.
