Sunset – Hunstanton, Norfolk, UK

20160116 DSC_0343When it comes to photography, living in East Anglia has some benefits – one of these is that it is one of the few regions in the UK where you can both see the sun rise and set over the sea. Having been to Aldeburgh recently to see the sun rise over the sea, I had decided that I should complete the set and try to get some shots of the sun setting over the sea.  So we decided to head over to Hunstanton, on the west coast of Norfolk to see the sun set over the wash.

The temperature has dropped to zero degrees C here and snow is being forecast but hasn’t yet arrived – so we woke up on the Saturday morning and thought “why not spend a couple of hours on a beach and watch the last of the light disappear over the horizon?”  Unfortunately we didn’t quite arrive in Hunstanton as early as I was hoping, so I wasn’t able to get any photos of the landscape but we did
make it before sunset, so we went straight down onto the beach to capture the best of the view as the sun went down.

Having seen the last of the light it was time to warm up and have the some traditional fish and chips.  I’m not sure if it was the effect of my recent diet, or the severe cold, but the fish and chips tasted amazing and I honestly can’t remember the last time we fed a family of 4 for less than a tenner!!
