All Things Norfolk business member Joe Lenton of Original Art Photography focusses on Cromer in the latest of his series of features for All Things Norfolk. Joe has over 50 international awards to his name and All Things Norfolk are delighted to bring you another edition of his popular series to help inspire you and learn how to take that perfect image to encapsulate Norfolk As we move through Autumn and Winter, the weather changes and the hours of daylight decrease. So, often many photographers seem to go into hibernation unsure of what to do until Spring. This month, I'd like to encourage you to make the most of the unique conditions of the cooler seasons. One particular phenomenon that you are likely to see more of is fog.

Hunstanton

We are fortunate enough to have both east-facing and west-facing beaches in Norfolk. So, you can see the sun rise out to see from one side of the county and set over the sea on the other. Hunstanton is in the northwest of Norfolk and it is a great location for landscape photographers, especially around sunset. It is a very varied stretch of the coast with "Old Hunstanton" being most well known for its iconic cliffs. The cliffs are made up of different layers of different colours of stone/earth. They can be found in the northern part of Hunstanton with ample parking available near the lighthouse. When photographing landmarks such as the Hunstanton cliffs, there are many possibilities available. You can go extremely wide to show more of the landscape,…

Britain might be basking in a heatwave, but young children at Gorleston seafront are keeping their cool as Great Yarmouth Borough Council has opened a new, fun wet play facility today (Wednesday, August 8). Over recent months, families have eagerly watched the new splashpad taking shape, with its fountain sprays, jet streams and buckets of tipping water – all set within an ocean-themed play environment featuring a sail boat, fish, seaweed and starfish. Today a group of local children were the first to try out the new splashpad, which was officially opened by Cllr Mary Coleman, the mayor, who cut a ribbon across the entrance gate.

Sea Palling and Waxham

This month we move further north along the Norfolk coast. Here we take a look at Sea Palling and Waxham beach. Sea Palling is probably the better known of the two and certainly has more parking and facilities. Waxham can be reached by walking south along the beach from Sea Palling. There is very limited parking available by Waxham beach itself. I like to make the most of any unique features at a location. This helps viewers to identify where the image was taken by giving a strong sense of place. It also means that I work differently at different locations, creating varying images by allowing myself to be guided by the environment around me. When we think of Sea Palling, there are a few distinctive elements that come to…

Caister Beach

Norfolk is fortunate to have a long stretch of varied coastline. This month we step out of Norwich and head to the coast to begin exploring a series of locations with their own unique character. We begin in Caister. For those of you unfamiliar with it, Caister-On-Sea is just north of Great Yarmouth. A good sized car park can be found on Beach Road (postcode NR30 5HD) by the Lifeboat centre. You can often find interesting things to photograph before you even get onto the beach at Caister. For many years there has been old machinery stored at the end of the car park as well as the Lifeboat building. It is worth having a look at them before going further.

River Wensum at Night

Last month we looked at some of the photographic possibilities along the river Wensum in Norwich between Carrow Road and Fye Bridge Street during daylight hours. This time we will retrace our route by night and look for fresh possibilities. We start down by the river near to the football stadium at Carrow Road. Similarly to during the day we can make the most of reflections in the water. At night, these reflections can sometimes be even clearer to see. Night photography is slightly more difficult than during the day due to the low light levels. So, you need to make sure that you have a tripod to mount your camera on. If not, you won't be able to hold the camera steady enough to get a good photo. As…

Norfolk is very popular with photographers. It is easy to see why. We've got stunning coastline, the broads, mills & windpumps, lovely villages and a city full of character to name but a few of the highlights. Whether you are coming to Norfolk on holiday or are lucky enough to live here, there is always something worth exploring with your camera in hand. Over the coming months I will be sharing some tips for locations that I've enjoyed photographing.
