At the beach with ... Professor Brian Cox!
What a surprise!
We went for a walk along the beach at Camber, East Sussex - a gorgeous Autumn morning.
I was snapping the waves and the seagulls when we spotted a group of people clustered around a professional-looking camera. I turned to MrNifty and said (apropos of nothing) "If that's Professor Brian Cox he's on my list, OK?"
As we got nearer - OMG it really WAS Professor Brian Cox *swoon* (click on the pics to enlarge)
This is one of several circles in the sand he drew - according to the roadie they didn't have the budget for a helicopter, just a stick to draw with.
He certainly worked that stick hard though, he drew quite a few circles before settling on a camera-worthy version.
This last is my favourite photo - random dog-walkers wandered straight through the middle of the shot and the dog actually dropped his ball at the feet of the man himself, who kicked it for him. I *knew* I should have obtained a dog...
