Black and white images of the north Norfolk coast.
There is often drama in the big Norfolk skies and it is particularly dramatic when photographed in black and white.
While most of my landscapes are shot in colour, sometimes an image truly lends itself to mono.
Below are two of my prints I’ve picked out to show off this week. Both were shot at Wells-next-the-sea on the north Norfolk coast. The first shows cumulus cloud hovering over East Hills and the second is shot from East Hills looking out toward the old RNLI Lifeboat House (which is currently being replaced with a new one).
The Norfolk coast is wild and dramatic all year round. The expansive beaches and massive skies give you a true sense of freedom. You can lose yourself out there and it is where I go when I want to escape.
These prints mean you can gaze at the view from your home or office space and feel free wherever you are.
Prints in a variety of formats and frame colours/sizes are available via the links below the images.Free UK delivery.
Spring is at last beginning to spring into life after what has seemed a very long winter to me.
As a photographer, I love all seasons but I have to say, the long gloomy days this winter just haven’t been as inspiring for me. Although I did carry on shooting (it’s impossible for me to stop), my mojo did wane somewhat.
Every season brings something worth seeing, if it isn’t obvious, you have to go look for it. I live by the river which makes things easier. There are always the swans, geese, cormorants, and pigeons to spot. Never have I been more thankful to see the blossom again, and the wild flowers beginning to burst into life.
I guess the state of the world has to have a bearing on the mood this winter. First came the pandemic and now of course war. Even though we are far removed from the wars in other parts of the world. The thought of others suffering wherever they are, takes a toll on the psyche.
So I am going to cease moaning about what a long difficult winter it was and start to celebrate spring. We are lucky to be here and especially lucky to be living in Norfolk.
This weekend there will be blue sky and the daffodils are blooming all around the city. Yesterday we took a walk along the River Wensum, down past Cow Tower which is one of my favourite spots to see them.
Only a few days earlier, we were lucky enough to spot a Kingfisher along the banks of the Wensum. I spent the whole of 2021 looking out for Kingfishers only to see a few from a very long distance away. This time, I had my baby Canon ready to shoot. I am not really a wildlife photographer, as in, it is not a speciality of mine, so I was mighty chuffed to capture a Kingfisher as they are rare to see and even more difficult to photograph.
