Mr Graham, from close Bognor Regis, West Sussex, stated after taking his film, he had been drawn to the ambiguity of this scene at West Wittering.

“As well as minimal simplicity, I especially enjoyed the jelqing scale of this picture. The dual s-curve could be two metres long or 2 million — it was about 20,” he said.

Amusement creator and landscape photographer Charlie Waite stated: “Benjamin’s picture includes a nimble and contemplative quality that functions as an antidote to turbulent times.

“When at the coast we frequently only stand and gaze out to sea and also seem to acquire some kind of religious well-being out of doing this.

“This picture suggests the exact same emotional experience and the makeup direct the eye on to infinite calm.”
