A very windy day walking on Brancaster beach on the North Norfolk coast. Late summer an yet very chilly, enough to make hands turn dry and blue! Occasionally the sun popped out as we strode across the sands gazing at the distant tide position. The sea round these parts can be treacherous round these parts and have been responsible for loss of life on more than the odd occasion.
As we gazed out to sea, north east of our current position, we could clearly see the wreck of the S.S. Vina built in Leith in the 19th century The ship was used in world war 2 as a blocking ship towards the end of her naval life and in 1944 was used as a target by the RAF, prior to the Normandy raids.
When the sun is blocked by the cloud, it is quite a dismal scene, reward comes only if you stick around for the sun to appear. That's when we got this shot with a 300mm lens. A bit of cropping and Hey Presto! I really love the sort of soft semi-abstract nature of this coastal gem. I hope you like it too!
As always, a maximum limited print run of 10 will be made available. Each print is coded and accompanied with its own Certificate of Authenticity.
Ideally this picture would be an excellent acquisition for anyone who loves UK coastal photographic scenes.
Aside: This part of Norfolk is famous for its amazing seafood and bird sanctuaries, it's well worth a visit if only for the atmospherics here!
