My final image to upload for Happisburgh. Although I've uploaded all 4 images of Happisburgh (as variations), I thought this way it would attract slightly more interest if all 4 were also uploaded separately.

Happisburgh, if you are not familiar with the story, is a village in North Norfolk that is literally disappearing into the sea. Houses on aptly named Beach Road are literally ending up o the beach. 26 Houses have 'disappeared' off the face of the earth to be washed out to sea and many more are dangerously close to the edge, with little or no compensation for the former homeowners.

For photographers this place is paradise, for the people living there it is sheer hell!

Eventually the whole village will disappear into the sea and Happisburgh will no longer exist, so visit it while you can!

Thanks for looking, sorry if I have depresed you, please comment, vote etc and thanks for looking.

Have a great bank holiday weekend!

Andrew.

Great mono images. Very dynamic. How heartbreaking for the residents though.

I like all 4 of your images and as they are black and white with plenty of contrast and sharp focussing the mood is really brought out.
I thought images 2, 3, and 4 show the true story behind the photos, but without knowing the story image 1 is a great shot with the eye being drawn towards the rocks of the foreground and the middle ground rather than the house on the cliff being the main subject.
Great shots and effects.

Thank you all for your comments, especially Richard. Happisburgh is a beach/village well worth visiting if you get chance, although poor Daisy Maye from Canada may have a few problems visiting as it's not exactly on her doorstep!!!

Take care and have a great bank holiday weekend.

Andrew.

A very good set of images that shows just how serious coastal erosion is on the East Coast and Happisburgh is one of the worst affected areas. They work well as mono images as there is no colour to distract the viewer from the reality of the situation. Andy

Good themed series. Particularly like V1 for its angular foreground interest (the strong shadows work particularly well) and its subtle tint to give a certain timeless appeal.

a fine range of images to show allude to how rapid the erosion rate is
