For me, the standout feature in the seaside town of Cromer on the Norfolk coast was the iconic pier, and I certainly spent a lot of time photographing it!

These two panoramic collages show the full length of the pier in all its olde wolde glory.

Funfair rides on the esplanade at Cromer on the Norfolk coast, England Lighthouse at Cromer on the Norfolk coast, England Lighthouse at Cromer on the Norfolk coast, England

When it comes to the quintessential British seaside resort, they don't come much more traditional than Cromer on the Norfolk coast, as my family found out during a week's holiday there earlier this year.

Needless to say I went a bit overboard on the photography front, trying to capture the ambiance of this 'town that time forgot'.

So over the next few days we'll be focusing (pun intended) on the delights of Cromer and the surrounding countryside of Norfolk.

2nd July 2018

Time lapse video showing sunrise over offshore wind turbines in Colwyn Bay off the North Wales coast

I love seeing and filming the sunrise and sunset, these are just wonderful times of the day.

However, I am looking forward to Autumn, when sunrise and sunset occur at more sleep friendly times!

Still, with scenes like this sunrise over the turbines of the Gwynt y Môr offshore windfarm, as seen from Llandudndo on the North Wales coast, a little loss of sleep is a small inconvenience.
