Dawn at North Fambridge

Dawn at North Fambridge

I have a friend called Jenni who is nearly as mad as I am!  Last Tuesday we decided on a trip to photograph the dawn, something I have never done before as I like to seep in late in my cozy bed.  However on Tuesday I was up at 3am and off to collect Jenni at 3.40, we arrived at North Fambridge at 4.45 just half an hour before the dawn.North Fambridge with jenni 007 I can’t describe the experience there were no cars on the road and there was a full moon so we had plenty of light when we arrived at the Mariner.

North Fambridge is on the river Crouch and has a very pleasant walk along the riverside we stopped by a seat and set up our cameras North Fambridge with jenni 045 as the dawn broke the light caught the sides of the boats that lay at anchor and the water was as still as a mill pond, it was breathtaking the photos cannot convey the experience.North Fambridge with jenni 052

I hope you enjoyed this little jaunt and are not suffering from lack of sleep.

Join me again soon

    Still recovering from the early start Suki! Up for around 2hrs! lol 😉 Such rich rewards for the sacrifice of a cozy bed 😉 Fantastic photos! …What an awesome moment capturing the breaking dawn AND at the mystical time of Full Moon. One which I am sure will remain etched always in your memory as well as the lens of the camera. A beautiful post Suki, and reflective of a lovely friend 🙂 Love Wolfie x

    I stand corrected once more. I thought they were a couple of bits of driftwood washed up by the tide. I think it must be me who is washed up lol.Yes I am sure Cherno would love to romp along that shoreline. In the last picture it looks like a seal or something is swimming, leaving behind a wake.love Kenny x
