Cromer Timelapse #2

The story behind this video

A week's holiday at Cromer on the North Sea coast of Norfolk gave me some great opportunities for shooting timelaspe videos featuring the famous pier.

A check of the local tide times, weather forecast and sunrise time and direction had me getting out of bed at 3am to catch the tide coming in around the pier stantions and beach defences as night slowly gave way to sunrise.

Needless to say, I had the beach to myself, at least for the earlier part of the shoot!
