How I spent my Summer Part 2

How I spent my Summer; The Sequel

No Summer is the same without a trip to the seaside. So although I pledged not to go to North Norfolk during the "busy" season, I did dare to go down to the beach to spend another delightful day with Jon Gibbs. Jon is a legendary, local landscape photographer with epic talent and a sense of humour to go with it.

The trouble is I spend much of my time laughing, not about my pathetic photographic efforts but more to do with how excited I get when I actually find a shot to take, so please note that landscape photography isn't my natural comfort zone!

I know Jon must think I am truly bonkers, but he always buoys me up with great encouragement, even though his favourite saying, " its not a total disaster" whenever he reviews my efforts. He does really spur me on to get better and better.

This time around, once we had done all there was to do with the darling little Beach Huts at Wells Next to The Sea, Jon showed me how to do ICM stuff! What fantastic fun and the sense of freedom and creativity was the very best time I have had with my camera for ages!

I admit it takes a little getting used to as most of my efforts look like very bad mistakes with aperture and shutter speed.. but some I think have turned out okay?


I have tried a few flower shots more since then and I think I am getting to like the technique, so its something I will persevere with.


If you want to do landscape photography on the North Norfolk Coast properly, speak to Jon, he'd love to hear from you. I've left his contact details on the Link page.

Happy blurry days to come!
