Prince of Waders

On tour the other day we were out on the coast doing a little photography. The best thing about Norfolk is the big skies and the light. The light. It’s just … fantastic. On the north coast looking out to sea the light is always over your shoulder. Ideal for photographing waders.

Amid the rocks were hiding a couple of Purple Sandpipers. So intent they were at feeding one in particular allowed close approach; pecking intently at the rocks taking something imperceptibly small to eat.

It was one of those days we get here on the coast; a little sun, a cutting wind and the occasional wintry shower. As it started to rain I couldn’t help but notice how the raindrops gathered in little domes on the sandpipers back. Does that make it The Prince of Waders?
