Day #2135

Day #2135Title: Concrete & Light
Location: Southend-on-Sea
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 70-300mm EF f/4.5-5.6 DO IS USM
Notes: I caught some wonderful late Autumn light in Southend today, during a lovely photowalk with friends in Southend. These shadows attracted my attention along the beach, being cast on a wooden ramp over the sea wall.

Day #2039Title: Norfolk Ice Cream
Location: Sheringham, Norfolk
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: It was rather grey today but I headed to Sheringham for breakfast and a walk. This mural is part of a longer display of art along the sea wall to the east side of the town. The weather only got worse, and I got very wet eventually, so I didn’t make any better images later in the day. By mid-afternoon, I decided to make my way home rather than stay on any longer. After a week away, it was good to get back!

Day #2038Title: Silky Water
Location: Happisburgh, Norfolk
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: After a long drive from the North West to Norfolk yesterday, I was pleased not to have to venture very far by car today. I met up with a Twitter friend, @markescapes who has moved from Essex to Norfolk in the last few years. Small World – he used to live in the same village as me! We had an excellent late breakfast in the beach side café near Happisburgh and then took a long stroll down the beach and back along the clifftops. The light was challenging, but always interesting. I finally got to use my ND10 filter (a Big Stopper clone) which I’ve had since Christmas but not had the chance to experiment with until now. I know this sort of thing is a bit cliché here, but it’s the first time I’ve done it! Then I spent the afternoon and early evening having a solo wander around the pretty town of Cromer and enjoyed a chippy tea looking out over the pier. Oh I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside! It also fits the Treasure Hunt Theme #36 – Slow Water. The Cybermen enjoyed the beach again today, and I found some elegant curves on Cromer Pier.

Day #1876

Day #1876Title: Bedrock
Location: St Mildred’s Bay, Kent
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: Last day of my visit to the Kent Coast today. It was sunny so I decided to have a little walk along the beach between Westbrook and West Bay near Broadstairs, before heading home. I was fascinated by the way the chalk bedrock is being eroded and uncovered by the sand in St. Mildred’s Bay. View the full set on Flickr.
