New listing from Sun Sea Landscape gallery - sun sets over an Essex creek, under a dramatic sky.
Fleet Head at Sunset – a small tidal creek near Great Wakering under a dramatic sky. Photographic print available in standard and custom sizes.

Careful planning gets you just so far with photography. I knew the sun would set in line with this creek, and I knew the tide would be full. But would I get a sky that would make the picture?

Fleet Head is hidden away behind the village of Great Wakering in Essex, just outside Southend on Sea. It’s a tidal creek, filled from the River Roach. This viewpoint is found a few hundred yards along a bridleway. and is easily missed if you don’t climb the dyke that forms the sea wall here. I was in place well before sunset, but it was only as the sun dipped towards the horizon that the full grandeur of that evening’s sky became apparent – and it was clear planning and luck were in balance!

I like this one so much that I have a framed print in my hall – it never fails to bring a smile to my face. Check the Sun Sea & Landscape gallery for the full picture (the one at the head of the blog is a slight crop).

As with all my pictures, I list a variety of sizes for sale – but if you need a particular size print to fill a favourite frame, or to discuss a custom large print for a prime position in your home or office, just use the Contact page to message me. I’m always happy to discuss whether your requirement will work for a particular photo.
