Photographer's Note

Long exposure on a miserable evening on Orford Ness island. Bloody bleak out there when the weather is not so good.
Its famous for its military use in the first and second world war and up to quite recently. Once owned by the MOD it now belongs to the National Trust which means it sort of belongs to the nation. It is also justly famous for all the coastal breeding birds that live here. Last time I saw over six spoonbills, not a common occurance in the UK.
To top it all the shingle beach is quite unique and so is the Trinty lighthouse which unfortunately will soon be joining the pebbles and will be dashed against the foreshore. Why? because the sea is slowly eating away the beach. Once over a mile out it is now within 10 or so meters. Worth a visit and so are the nuclear bunkers although there are still plenty of live ammunitions about.
