Sunrise Sound Walk: The Wash
In the depths of winter, Horatio Clare welcomes a Lincolnshire dawn across The Wash.
In the cold depths of the year, Horatio Clare watches night retreat and day break at Gibraltar Point in Lincolnshire. As the sun rises in the east across the mingling of land and sea on the northern most tip of The Wash - that great bite out of the east coast of Britain - the stark, remote, unspoilt beauty of the mudflats and saltmarsh is brought to life. From the glimmer of first light to the great golden flare of the risen sun, this moment of serene natural drama reveals the vast skies and shimmering waters of one of the UK’s great wildernesses.
The second of two programmes walking the North Sea coast. As the rising winter sun brings warmth and light to the coast in the middle of winter, Horatio takes delight in the minute detail of the plants, the wildlife, the sounds and wide East Coast vistas he experiences on the walks. Suffused with music reflecting the feel and mood of the coastline, he captures the ever changing light and shifting seas and sands of these liminal places.
