Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

This is the inner harbour of Wells-next-the-Sea on the North Norfolk coast

Please click on this link to see this photograph much bigger and clearer.

It has been a port and a largely natural safe-haven for ships and boats for at least 600 years. Protected by rare salt marshes behind a sand bar. The Port of Wells was one of England's major harbours in Tudor times and a thriving, busy centre for shipping and maritime industry in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, when its stone quay was constructed, along with many of the large buildings and tiny yards and houses that still dominate the look and feel of the town.

The port was busy whilst we were there, mostly with holidaymakers. The weather was beautiful which had encouraged lots of people to head to the coast!

I loved the curves of the jetty, the excited chatter of the children, the calls of the seabirds and the general enjoyable sounds at a seaside location. Pity audio doesn't accompany photographs!

As a workshop, I will add a scene which I was trying to compose when it was photobombed by a gull!

Have a lovely day, Bev :-)
