Herringfleet is a unique black smock drainage mill on the Suffolk side of the Norfolk & Suffolk border. The Mill was built around 1820 and is one of the fine st mills to photograph in the UK. The mill stands in the middle of the Herringfleet Marshes and photographs well at all times of the day.
This image was captured at sunrise following an overnight winter hoarfrost. If you look carefully it’s possible to see the reeds covered in tiny delicate ice crystals. By placing one of the reed stems in front of the sun I was able to illuminate problems with lens flare from the rising sun.
This image sat on my hard drive unprocessed for two years before I processed the raw file. In the first month of sending it to image libraries and my customers it appeared on five magazine front covers around the world.
