I visited Maldon on Saturday around sunset…a good time of year to visit as all the kiddies fairground and paddling pools are closed down so, whilst there were still plenty of people taking the air, it wasn’t as busy as it gets in the summer months.

It was pretty chilly and I started trying to squeeze the sunset into an image of the statue to Byrhtnoth…it’s never a great idea to try and force an image like this as it upsets the composition…but needs must.


I wandered down the Blackwater estuary and found these old wrecks…abandoned, wrecked stuff always excites photographers and I’m no exception

Carrying on down the Estuary you eventually reach the causeway across to Northey Island where the aforementioned Byrhtnoth came to a sticky end at the Battle of Maldon…the tide was coming in so the causeway was not passable…somewhere to visit another day.
