Norfolk Coast photography of Happisburgh
Happisburgh Norfolk Coast - The old wooded sea defences have mostly disappeared from the Norfolk coastal village of Happisburgh now, replaced in places by a line of boulders cutting the beach in two.

I've been visiting Happisburgh since day one of having a camera, and in fact if you include family caravan holidays at Cart Gap as a child in the Seventies for over 40 years. I absolutely adore the place, and in later years for the amazing photographic opportunities afforded by its ever changing coastline.

For this photograph the tide was such that it was breaking onto the rocks, so I walked along until I found a gap where the sea was coming through. Looking at the scene I thought if I walk slightly pass the gap and wait for the right wave the receding water would form a lovely zig-zag through the rocks and to the sea beyond. Then it was just a case of waiting for the perfect receding wave, but timed with the next wave coming in and breaking through the gap.

The sky coupled with the flat light meant the final photograph lent itself to Black & White.
