Was in Brightlingsea taking some portrait photo’s the other day and thought I’d go down to the beach and have a look around. Sun was hiding and it just started raining, but thanks to trusty ND filter managed to got a moody shot despite the rain…!

So, finally got round to looking through all the images I took a couple of weeks ago, of the Willis Building in Ipswich. It was the 40th/Ruby Anniversary of it being built by Sir Norman Foster in 1975. It’s an amazing building and looks still as modern today as I imagine it looked when it was first built. It had been announced on the radio that is was to be lit up ruby red so there were quite a few of us photographers out with tripods and remote controls trying to capture it all.

Did a lovely walk on Sunday in Woodbridge, local Southwold brewery @Adnams has a great list of local circular walks starting/ending at their pubs and we have done a few so far this year. Really loved this one as we timed it just right for the sun to set and I got some lovely shots of the River Deben which snakes its way along the right of the town. You walk past the Tide Mill and some shipwrecks and old warehouses. There are also some boatyards down there too which always make for interesting shots.
