Norfolk Coast and Broads

25th September 2012
As some of you may or may not know, I turned forty earlier this year. My wife bought me a Norfolk Broads & Coast Landscape Workshop with local professional Landscape photographer Chris Herring.(www.theuklandscape.com). Photographically speaking, landscapes were my first love. Trudging around the Norfolk countryside and beaches alone and at some ungodly hour capturing images is not everyones cup of tea, but I love it. So this gift from my long suffering photography widow, was more than appreciated.
It was a warm, cloudless Saturday afternoon when we started at the derelict Brograve Mill, near to Horsey Windpump. After shooting for an hour, we moved onto Happisburgh Lighthouse then to the beach to capture some incoming wave action, finishing off at the beautiful How Hill, and Turn Fen Mill for sunset. Here we jostled for position with the pleasure boats, and waged war on a cloud of very hungry midges. For the record, I lost twelve bites to nil, but I will have my revenge...mwah ha ha ha!!
It didn't dampen my enthusiasm one bit, as the shots in the bag more than made up for the constant itching of the next three days. I posted below my three favourite images from the day. I'm left itching again now, only this time to get out and do some landscapes now the conditions become more favourable....
