Before and After…Amazing landscapes that are totally transmuted by the tide!

Tides are the rise and fall of sea levels caused by the combined effects of the gravitational forces exerted by the Moon and the Sun and the rotation of the Earth. These physical phenomena are causing the total transformation of landscapes all over the world and the result is stunning! The photographer Michael Marten documents the drastic differences between the tides in various locations across the UK in his “Sea Change” collection of photographs. You will be amazed with the changes that you are going to see.

Between the tide and low tide a part of land is revealed where you can walk on and islands are becoming parts of the mainland where you can reach by foot and not by boat!
