Wells-next-the-Sea

26th July 2016
20th July 2016 I parked in the town of Wells-next-the-Sea under a dark sky hoping for a few sunset shots. As I got out of the van about 7:15 p.m. I checked the sky and wondered if it was going to rain. “I’ll probably be alright I thought, don’t bother carrying an anorak; anyway it’s far too hot to wear it.” Within minutes light drizzle started. “Shall I turn back to the van and get waterproofs? No, it’ll not be much.” It didn’t last long and before 8 p.m. there was a wonderful pink light and the first shot was in the bag.

Minutes later it started to pour but the light was fantastic and I stuck it out as a rainbow formed under a darkening sky. Vertical, horizontal, multi-shot panoramas - I kept shooting and the Fuji X-Pro2 never missed a beat but as the light eased and with good shots nailed I dodged into a doorway for a few minutes, then into the chip shop next door where I asked for, and was freely given, some tissue to dry the gear.

Twenty-five minutes later I was back in action; the storm had cleared, it was high water and calm and the pink light had returned to illuminate a huge fading thunderhead. What a night, now it was time to return to the chip shop and buy tea which I ate sitting on the harbour wall watching the light fade. Super!
