|Cliffsend Burial Site from the Air|
I wrote about this once before, when the position of the 'dig' was still a secret and I photographed it from the air. At first the suggestion appears to be that it was a Bronze Age site but other burials were subsequently discovered, reportedly from the post Roman period.
I'm expecting delivery of a new 'big' camera body tomorrow and so, with luck, my next set of aerial photos will be even sharper than ever. I haven't changed cameras in four years and the technology and in particular, the image sensor capability, has moved-on in leaps and bounds in contrast with the picture shot in relatively low light and seen above.
|St Mildreds Bay June 2013|
The other day, I had a client who asked if I might "Stop over Brighton Pier" so she "could take some photos." I replied that stopping whilst airborne isn't recommended in the aircraft operating manual and that I might have to disappoint her.
|Westgate's Blue Flag|
The beach at Westgate looks delightful but at this time of years it should have a scattering of small children wielding buckets and spades in swimsuits and not winter coats;I wouldn't recommend sitting outside in the cold north-east wind. I'm having trouble remembering a summer like it.
