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.

During the day the pier was crowded with holidaymakers, but at 6am, just after sunrise, things were much more peaceful, with just a couple out for an early morning stroll in the cool sea air.
