From my last trip to Cromer in April I found that when I was standing on the beach, the sun was setting behind the cliffs rather than out to sea.
After some research online, I found that I would have to wait a few more weeks for the sun to be in the right position to get shots of the sun setting in the middle of the pier.
I having been looking at the weather forecast and tide times all week and tonight seemed like to be the most ideal conditions to make a visit to Cromer. After and extremely overcast day in Great Yarmouth, I was doubtful that the weather forecast was accurate but after looking at the MET Office Infrared Radar Map and it looked liked that the thick blanket of cloud covering East Anglia was about to head east out to sea.
So I chanced it and headed to Cromer to get some snaps at sunset featuring Cromer Pier. The time I got to North Walsham, the thick blanket of cloud was replaced with blue skies. When I arrived at Cromer I headed straight to the pier knowing I only had about 50 minutes left before sunset.
I got some different vantage points of the pier and headed to the beach and watch the sunset. On the way back to the car I got some shots of the pier and fishing boats at dusk.
