In photos: Stunning scenes of Burnham-On-Sea's coastline from 1,500ft

The ever-changing coastline between Burnham-On-Sea and Brean has been captured on camera from 1,500ft above the town this week.

Burnham resident John Woodman took these impressive photos during a microlight flight along the coast with a friend.

He took off from Westonzoyland and flew over Highbridge's River Brue (right), Burnham and Brean Down.

"As a frequent sailor, I was intrigued to see our coastline from above at low tide to see how the mud and sand is shifting over time in the Burnham area," John told "We had perfect conditions - it was a calm day and the cloud cover was about 2,500ft which meant visibility was superb."

Pilot Martyn Willmington, who flew the Skyranger microlight, added: "I have lived here 55 years and always see something new or that has changed whenever I go up. It's an impressive sight."
