We’re very excited to introduce our newest contributor to the Nor–Folk Journal – Hal Shinnie – our visual storyteller.
Hal is originally from Suffolk, although he has spent most of his life in our motherland of Norfolk and, these days, he resides on the North Norfolk coast.
As well as being a freelance editorial and advertising photographer Hal is both a fair-weather cyclist and a fair-weather sea fisherman. Over coming months, Hal will be documenting and sharing with us some lesser-known corners of our beautiful home county of Norfolk. Over to you Hal…
Brancaster Staithe. A very early start to the day and with cold water seeping through a forgotten split in my boots, I clumsily helped Simon Letzer and his son Lewis load high the tender of their boat, Speedwell, with boxes of bait.
We returned some ten hours later after a glorious day out on the North Sea, Speedwell carefully nosing her way down Norton Creek, laden with boxes of crabs and lobsters and a lot of very atmospheric photographs.
With special thanks to Simon and Lewis Letzer: www.letzersseafood.co.uk
