The Earth has an incredible amount of coastline – and some of it is truly spectacular, as these images show.
They are from a new book called Coast, which celebrates the places where the land meets the sea, from Northumberland in the north of England to New Zealand via Florida.
They capture the world’s breathtaking shores, spanning beaches, islands, oceans, mountains, peninsulas, cliffs and more, underscoring that coastlines around the world are as varied as the climates and conditions they have evolved from.
Author David Ross says: ‘Coastlines give hints of the Earth’s history long before life emerged. We know now that is not a coincidence: they once formed part of a giant continent which existed before the Atlantic Ocean was formed.
‘Perhaps the eternal attraction of coastal scenery lies partly in that sense of uncertainty: even the most placid sandy beach is a frontier between the security of dry land and the great unknown.’
Here Talkmore Travel presents a selection of images from the book.
‘Hardened lava from a volcanic period some two million years ago forms a distinctive tilting spike,’ writes Mr Ross about Pinnacle Rock on Bartolomé Island in Ecuador’s Galápagos Islands. ‘Beneath it, Galápagos penguins breed and human visitors enjoy snorkelling’
