Fishing boats at Alderburgh

A commercial fishing fleet is now a thing of the past at Aldeburgh.  Skipper Dean Fryer explains why:  ‘Bureaucracy, paperwork, over-the-top EU  quotas and the rising costs of simply fuelling and maintaining a boat has driven most fishermen out of business.’

Nevertheless, fishing seems to be a part of the DNA for many.  The high tide line along the beach is marked by a sprinkling of small boats and, behind them, a row of black fishermen’s huts.  Typically a catch might include sole, skate, bass, flounder, lobster and/or crab.

The shingle beach shelves steeply and ‘vintage’ tractors are used to haul the boats to safe dry land.

At the water’s edge

Throughout our few days on the Norfolk coast the strong breeze constantly injected energy into the waves breaking on the shore.

Not just a pretty picture

Often, when taking a photograph, we are consciously or unconsciously trying to capture more than just a visual image. We are attempting to capture an experience that impacts on two, three or even four of our senses  –  not just the visual.  Consider, for example, the two images below and in each instance allow yourself to be there at the scene of the breaking waves  –  experience the force of the sea, hear the sound, taste the salt spray.

Or, enjoy the relaxing warmth of paddling through the shallow pools left by the ebbing tide on a warm summer’s day

Pebble patterns and textures

Over the next week or so I intend to post probably three collections of pebble patterns.  All of the images were taken as I walked along a beach in East Sussex.  When I spotted a pebble that interested me I simply stood over it, pointed my camera down and clicked.  The pictures were obviously cropped later.  Nothing has been added or removed from the actual image.  I am constantly amazed by the beauty of the abstract patterns in natural objects that can so easily pass unnoticed.

The Lighthouse

The lighthouse pictured is La Corbière, situated at the south west tip of the Isle of Jersey.  The name means ‘a place where crows gather’, but the crows have long since been displaced by seagulls.
