Wow, I'm really liking them. Very haunted looking. What were you trying to capture in particular?

thanks! i was trying to capture a different view of the area. It's the Norfolk Broads which can get crowded in summer with tourists and stuff, so I wanted to show a different side to them-the parts the tourists don't see, a more mysterious side. And yay I wanted them to look kind of haunted! I had to go out on a cold misty morning in winter to get some of them though! brrr ...

Is photography a hobby, or is it something you're studying?

They are really specailly photographs! Very atmospheric, where are they taken and what do the places mean to you - if they mean anything at all!

What other photographers are you inspired by?

Thankyou Dandy! I took the photos at various places on the Norfolk Broads which is quite a special area to me. Despite being a tourist attraction I have always found the area to be very inspiring and beautiful. I tried to take these to show a different side to the Norfolk Broads that tourists see- a more mystical,beautiful place.
With these photographs I feel that Peter Henry Emerson inluenced me most but landscape/nature painters also inspire me.
