Extras: Gorillapod / CamRanger

Day #196Title: Infinite Horizon, Three Of Me
Location: Wellington Pier, Great Yarmouth
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 17-40mm EF f/4 L USM
Extras: Gorillapod / CamRanger
Notes: Out and about photographing piers today, I found myself at Great Yarmouth Wellington Pier (or the remains of its longer length). When I look out to sea I always think it’s like looking into infinity. So an appropriate shot for the current 52 Weeks ThemeInfinite.

Day #163

Day #163Title: Hall Of Mirrors
Location: Weston-super-Mare Pier
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 17-40mm EF f/4 L USM
Extras: None
Notes: I spent another grand day exploring piers today, along the north Somerset coast. My first stop was the lovely old Victorian pier in Clevedon, followed by two in Weston-super-Mare. In the Grand Pier I went into the Hall of Mirrors for a giggle, and found this wibbly wobbly example to make today’s image in front of. The second pier in Weston was the crumbling Birnbeck, and final destination and overnight B&B was in Burnham-on-Sea to visit Britain’s shortest pier. All good fun, and a perfect shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #20 – Frames Within Frames.

Day #161Title: Face Down Tuesday – Walton Pier Edition
Location: Walton-on-the-Naze, Essex
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 17-40mm EF f/4 L USM
Extras: Gorillapod / Self-Timer
Notes: I headed to the coast again today, to visit another three piers. This was at Walton-on-the-Naze before the beach got very busy in the afternoon. I found a quiet spot on the sea wall to have a nice lay down as the tide was just beginning to recede.

Day #159Title: Getting Sand In My Sandals
Location: Felixstowe, Suffolk
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 17-40mm EF f/4 L USM
Extras: Gorillapod / Wireless Remote
Notes: I enjoyed a fantastically sunny trip to visit a couple of East Anglian piers which I haven’t visited before today. This was at the first, on the beach at Felixstowe in south Suffolk, before I headed to Harwich Ha’Penny Pier just across the River Orwell in Essex. These were the first two pier visits for my new photographic project, Piers Of The Realm.
