Southwold in winter

I thought we might get lucky with the weather today, and manage to get some nice shiny winter pictures in the Suffolk seaside town of Southwold, but although it was sunny on the drive there, as we arrived the clouds moved in and flattened all the light. Still, it's kind of an appropriate aesthetic, the grey overcast weather reflecting the unbusy nature of a seaside town in winter. Took the 18–55 again, in the vague hope it'd work better on the X-T2. Nope. I really should just sell it, I'm never satisfied with the results; the primes have spoiled »

Gorleston, see the sea

Doesn't feel like a week since my last wander around Gorleston seafront, and the weather was not so shiny this time, hence the black and white. This is kind of the first of two vaguely related posts; I took them on the same day, but more than that they both sort of illustrate aspects of Gorleston in a non-glamorous way. Used the 18–55 again. Still don't like it. That accursed dust spot :( »

Pakefield and Kessingland Beach and Cliffs

Just a bit south of Pakefield beach, heading towards Kessingland, there are some interesting sandstone cliffs that I'd never seen before. I didn't even know they were there until I decided on the spur of the moment to take a walk along the beach that way. These were taken with a mixture of the Fuji X100, and the Fuji X-E1 with 14mm and 60mm lenses. It's interesting using the two cameras side by side, as it makes it clear how dated the X100 is now – its electronic viewfinder is pretty grainy and not very colour-accurate, it's slow, and changing autofocus »

Hunstanton beach and cliffs

Hunstanton is a town on the west coast of Norfolk. It's one of the only places in the east of England where you can watch the sun set over the sea, and is home to some interesting red-and-white cliffs. The weather forecast was more promising today than last time, so I decided to drive over to Hunstanton again. The sun was shining almost all the way there, but annoyingly, clouds began to appear not long after I arrived. Still, lightly overcast certainly beats heavy overcast and freezing cold rain and wind, and the number of people on the beach compared »
