It’s afternoon in this image, four o’clock afternoon-time. The tide is coming in, but it is not high tide yet. Where is the beach? It is under water. What colour is the sea? It is blue/grey/green – the sea is always blue/grey/green – blue/grey/green is sea-colour! Do you want to be exact? You could say that the sea and the sky are grey. The sky is cloudy, very cloudy – rain is coming. It is windy as well. The surf is rough and messy and the waves large – nobody could go surfing this afternoon.
