Rolling clouds or waves?

On my last flight from Birmingham to Amsterdam (Schiphol), we had the setting sun right behind us.

Beneath the clouds, the sky changed colour from orange, via dark red to pink.

Looking at the top half this almost abstract photo, I imagine it could be a seaside picture of rolling waves. In the bottom half, you can just make out the Norfolk coastline.

Luckily, not all the seats were occupied so I could move from the left to the righthand side of the cabin. There I captured this amazing view:

Beautiful and deadly cliffs

Beachy Head is famous for its white chalk cliffs extending over 150 meters above sea level. They are beautiful, and deadly. Crosses near the cliff edge remind visitors of that fact.

Some people slip because they get too close to the edge. There are warning signs and a negligible fence made from a single wire, but only at the highest point.

Unfortunately, Beachy Head is a well-known location for suicide attempts. Organisations such as the Samaritans and the Beachy Head Chaplaincy patrol the cliffs 24 hours a day, seven days a week. They reach out to people, encourage them to seek help, and often succeed in preventing suicide.
