I took a visit to How Hill this evening to get some photos of the Turf Fen Windmill at sunset. At this time of the year the sun sets behind the windmill. I walked along the bank of the River Ant until I found a good vantage point without getting any boats in my shots.
The last time I took a trip to Happisburgh Lighthouse was back in the winter when there was snow on the ground and cliffs. I thought I would revisit Happisburgh again to see how much the landscape has changed since my last trip.
Finding the right combination of weather, tide and astrological conditions to capture the sky reflecting on the wet sand at Cromer is a challenge. Most of the times I have been to Cromer, I have been out of luck with the weather, tides being too high or the sun being in the wrong place.
What I thought was going to a clear evening at Thurne turned out to be a partially cloudy evening instead. As the sun started to set the low level clouds started to get darker and with the rays of sunlight shining through all added to make the scene look very dramatic.
After a restless night sleep, I thought I may as well get up and do something productive. I recently had a photography workshop with Jon Gibbs at Holkham Beach, where I got some great shots of the north Norfolk coastline and sand dunes.
After my visit to Ashtree Farm Drainage Mill in April, I thought I would revisit the mill again to get some shots of it at sunset. After wading through the long grass at Paddys Loke, I managed to get to a good vantage point of the mill.
After Saturdays visit to Blickling Hall, I seriously under estimated the scale of the estate and the time required to walk around it. So today I found a Blickling estate walk guide on the National Trust website that shows a route around the estate that takes two hours to walk.
