Photographer's Note

I love these shores, I find them exhilarating and make me want to embrace life and all it has to offer.

Iken is one of those fabulous spots that some people think of as their favourite Suffolk place. Others come across it by accident, as if it were a happy secret. And there must be many people, I suppose, who do not even know that it exists. The little thatched church on its mound jutting out into the wide River Alde is part of the panoply of Suffolk mysticism, an element in an ancient story of the birth of England, of grey mists and sad, crying wading birds swinging low over the mudflats, as if this were a piece of Benjamin Britten's chamber music made flesh. As you may guess, it is a place about which it is easy to wax lyrical. Info, Suffolk Churches.
