Forgotten Images – Norfolk
Following last months find from 2006 I have continued with my archive review turning up many more images that had not been processed and released.
This months image was captured in late August 2006 at Hunstanton on one of my earliest photography trips for a week around the coasts of Norfolk and Suffolk.
The cliffs at Hunstanton on the North Norfolk coast make a spectacular view. They show an amazing slice of Britain’s history and originate from just after the Jurassic period. This makes them 100 million years old and some of the oldest rocks visible in East Anglia. Hunstanton is an east coast town but faces west and is one of the few places on the east coast in England where the sun can be seen to set over the sea.
This stretch of Norfolk’s coastline is truly the sunset coast. In Hunstanton the progression of the setting sun lasts hours longer than in other west facing locations – up to a staggering 5½ hours is possible!! So when it is a great sunset you have literally hours to enjoy it. Once the sun goes below the horizon in Hunstanton it remains light for hours after – often aided by a beautiful moon rising from the East. Although I did not manage to capture a sunset on this trip I did capture some images of the cliffs, one of which has been in the Norfolk and Suffolk gallery for sometime.
The difference with the image above is that it is taken closer to the cliffs and includes the wreck of the trawler Sheraton and was captured on my second digital camera the Canon 20D with a 17-85mm EFS lens set at its widest 17mm f20 @ 1/8th sec.
How do you think this image compares with the one included in my portfolio since shortly after the original trip. This can be found in the East Anglia Gallery. Your thoughts would be most welcome.
