Take & Make ~ Episode 4

You may have noticed a bit of radio silence on the Gavtrain.com site of late. That’s been down to two things. Firstly I’ve been working for Adobe in the media centre during the recent London Olympics and after that, I’ve been away on my summer holiday.

Whilst we were away I was able to find time to record a couple of new videos and the first one is now live.

The lighthouse at Happisburgh

For this video I visited the beautiful town of Happisburgh on the north Norfolk coast. To be honest I didn’t know much about the place but a brief search on the internet quickly unearthed this location as a “must visit” place to shoot.  My good luck started at the beginning of the day when we arrived to find the lighthouse was open for visitors, so a climb to the top was the first thing we did.

Fun as that was, the best photos are from the coast path and my good luck continued with this amazing sky and a field full of barley ready to harvest. The gentle sea breeze which was blowing, gave me the idea of capturing the movement of the crop in the photo and that’s exactly what I demonstrate in this video.
