I decided to leave a bit earlier than usual this morning to go to work as the last few days I have missed out on some fantastic sunrises. I cycle to work every day and I always go over the Heaven Bridge in Great Yarmouth. I happen to live in Great Yarmouth and I don’t really ever seem to photograph it.
I had an eventful trip out to Turf Fen Windmill tonight in the hope I would get some reflective shots of the mill in the river. On my last visit, I forgot to take my wide angle lens and missed out on some fantastic reflections of the mill in the water, this time I did not forget it.
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.
The fine historic city of Norwich has a medieval castle and cathedral that dominates the Norwich skyline. During this clear sunny day in early April, I walked along the bank of the River Wensum, photographing some beautiful architectural scenery of the Cathedral, Pulls Ferry, Cow Tower, St James Mill and the Quay Side.
