There is something magic about the coast of the British Isles at all times of the year and while many only head to the coast in fine weather, even when there is a gale blowing and the rain is verging on torrential, the coast can be exhilarating to behold.

I am fortunate enough to have traveled around most of the coastline of the British Isles and so headed over to Cromer in the county of Norfolk to get some weather images for the UK national newspapers. Sadly, the old laptop I was using had problems functioning (I often think that Windows XP was coded by the Devil himself!) and I was a little late getting the images out and all that on top of a mid-afternoon high tide. As usual, nothing was used the next day!

Editing the images on my desktop, I came across this image I took just before departing from Cromer and thought it captured the atmosphere of the autumn sea perfectly and decided therefore to edit it in mono as a moody landscape, to which much of the light of these isles often lends itself in months outside of spring and summer.
