A visit to Suffolk

March 14, 2018  •  1 Comment

Had the opportunity of a couple of days to shoot some images in Suffolk, I had hoped the weather would have been kinder, but you have to take what you can get sometimes. It sure was nice to get away from the Derbyshire hills, I had planned to shoot the pumping station at Herringfleet, it's a photography Honeypot location, but I always wanted to shoot some images of it, the idea was to do this fisrt thing, then drop down to Shingle Street on the coast for some Sea shots. However the weather was forecast to be a mixed bag, and indeed it was. The Herringfleet location was some 60 miles from where I was staying, along the way the weather looked decidely poor, with a gloomy day and a prospect of rain, my hopes were looking dashed. As I walked from the car to the location, the skies started to clear and some better light looked possible.

Bearing in mind the photographic attraction to the Mill, I started looking for compositions which showed the Mill as part of the Suffolk landscape, rather than of the mill itself, I found several views that suited both the composition and light. It's a shame that a couple of the sails were missing, these had in fact broken off, still the place is in a fantastic location, and is well worth a visit. All the images were taken using the Pentax 645z with a mix of lenses.
