It has been a while since I last went to Cromer and as the weather has been more like summer the last few days, I decided to take a drive there. I have recently purchased a new camera, the Sony A7II and thought I would see how it compared to my other Sony A6000 and A77II cameras.
It is not often that I visit the beach even though it’s about a 15 minute walk from my home, and I seem to always find other places to visit for a sunrise. So I left a bit earlier than usual this morning to go to work and cycled to the beach to watch the sunrise.
On my last outing I went to Eccles on Sea, where I got some fantastic long exposure shots of the sea groynes and rocks. This stretch of coastline is no stranger to coastal erosion and this is well pronounced at Happisburgh.
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.
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.
