Landscapes in the black mirror are closer than they appear...


  I took 150odd photos during my beach walk on Saturday, and even after whittling them down, I still had 59 that I wanted to display. I managed to use three of them in Beach Borg, 39 in the last post, and omit a further nine, so here are the remaining eight - all of which have something in common.

  As you can probably tell, the camera was practically on the ground (and in a couple of cases, almost in the water) when I took these photos. I like the effect it gives of making the subject appear larger than it actually is.

  1. I think it's fun to have a go at taking shots from different angles... though it's usually head back on the bar pouring straight from the bottle...
    Yay! First!

    1. Oh, Princess, I need to get some sleep: it took me three goes to "get" your comment!

  2. Did you get wet????
    Sx

    P.S The sea looks almost frozen in pic 4. I hope you were well wrapped up.

    1. Half the toes on my right got a bit moist when I stepped in a rockpool by accident. Otherwise, no, I didn't get wet, thankfully.
      Despite how it looks, it felt almost balmy (not barmy) as there was no wind.

  3. Well done. I especially like the sea arch in pix five and six.

    1. That arch is quite small - I should think even Lola and Nikko would have to duck to get through!

  4. I was going to say that surely not every one of your 150 photos could possibly be odd, but on seeing the edited version I'm not so sure. I think that something must have happened at Cromer, because despite there being piers, remains of fortification and even the odd dying endangered species, you seem to be the only person! Can I come and live there too? Or would I get the same fate as happened to the other 200,000 inhabitants and holiday-makers???

    1. It's possible that Mr. DeVice has frightened away the other residents.

    2. Well, what good is being a witch if one isn't going to use it for personal advantage?! Bloody people...

    3. Actually, despite what I've just said, some people managed to evade their fate and ruin my photos. In picture 4 there's someone standing at the foot of the cliffs behind the "river" (tiny stream); and in picture 6, three people can be seen through the arch loitering on the concrete slope (possibly with a dog. Or a small child on a lead?)

    4. Clearly either ghosts or people running away. There aren't even any Jehovah's Witnesses, which is odd since they've abandoned their commitment to knocking on doors and have vowed to stand on every street corner in the world.
      Unless...is that a copy of the Watchtower I see?

  5. Thank you for sharing your spectacular fotos! What stunning views and fantastic angles! Wonderful shots of the tide pools and exquisite arch!

    I've looked over the last few foto posts you've shared, and the pictures are amazing! You've got postcard and calendar quality fotos here! Masterpieces!

    Sometimes, I get irritated when people wander into my landscape and nature shots. But sometimes, they turn out to be useful, when I use them to create perspective and scale, to give some idea on the size and distance of the objects I'm photographing.

    1. Thanks, Eros! I can't take all the credit, though, as Camera and Norfolk do most of the heavy lifting :)
