TF6433 : Snettisham Beach, Sunset

4 km from Snettisham, Norfolk, Great Britain

Snettisham Beach, Sunset
Snettisham Beach, Sunset
This view is across the sands bordering The Wash at Snettisham. As can be seen it is a vast expanse of tidal sand, much beloved by shorebirds. This stretch of coast from King's Lynn up to Hunstanton is of course rather unusual for the East Coast of England, in that it is west-facing, and is therefore one of the few places on this side of the country where a sunset can be seen over the sea.

This was my first contribution to the Geograph project, when most of the map was still green (not yet photographed for the project). However, when I took this photo I was unaware of the project, finding out about it just a couple of weeks later, I thought that this snap might be accepted. I was right and a new hobby was born for me - one I'm still pursuing actively over three years later!
My original comment for this photo was "Taken with a Fuji F401 digital camera : October 2005" - which is a little less informative than I try to be these days.
