Stepping to the left hand side of these groynes (see earlier picture) you got quite a different photograph…mainly because you are shooting more into the sun.
I was in Norfolk for a couple of days over the weekend for our works Christmas do and actually managed to get up for sunrise! It always helps that I don’t sleep well in a new bed.
Anyhow, I was in Gorleston-on-Sea and had taken the trouble to look at a Google map of the area and had convinced myself I was in Lowestoft so I could shoot the pier…I wasn’t and I couldn’t!
So these groynes were the next best thing!

Another day trip to Great Yarmouth allowed me 10 minutes before my meeting to trot onto the front and photograph the windfarm in the distance.
Handholding a shot for a second is not recommended…but I had deliberately set out without my tripod, I’d left it in the car…then I saw this view and thought I’d like to at least try and get this shot. I had to reduce the ISO to 50 to get the slow shutter speed and I then took a series of shots with the camera jammed against my face whilst trying not to breath 😉
You can tell this is the East coast at the moment by the size of the waves! This was taken at Walton On The Naze in Essex.
You may have gathered, if you follow this blog at all, that we visited Southwold last week. We were so lucky with the weather – mid October and comfortable in just a polo shirt. The sun really was glinting off the North Sea and this contrast really makes this black and white photograph of the resort.
