The story behind this image

A week's stay at the quaint Norfolk town of Cromer on the North Sea coast gave me plenty of photo opportunties to capture the unique ambiance of the British seaside holiday.

And of course - what is a British seaside holiday without a pier to admire and enjoy!

Cromer boasts a magnificent and well looked after Victorian pier, which is the outstanding coastal feature in this part of the world.

So, of course, Cromer pier featured heavily in my photographic endeavours during our holiday here.

Such as this view, taken at sunrise from the shingle beach at high tide.

A combination of pier, groynes and breaking waves - what more could you ask from a morning at the seaside?
