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.
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.
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.
Breydon Water is one of my favourite spots to visit throughout the year. It never disappoints with great views, lots of wildlife and amazing sunsets, there is always something to photograph (even the rubbish people dump – if you’re into that kind of photography).
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.
