A Morning Walk at Hastings

These images were taken on a visit to the coastal town of Hastings , way back in the 1990’s . I remember that I had just invested in a Nikon FM2 Camera which I still own. Getting up very early one summers morning I loaded some Kodak Ektar 100 colour film and went for a walk along the sea front.
Hastings is a great sea side town located on the south coast of the UK and a wonderful place to get some beach and sea front images, I remember being really pleased with these images and encouraged to keep taking more.

I think finding a good location for your photography is key to keeping you going and learning as much as you can about using your camera and adding to your photography skills.

  6. Lovely shots, Nigel; I spent a lot of weekends in Hastings as a teenager in the 90s so this takes me back in a very pleasant way. And thanks for the link to my site! (Although the old Ektar is a very different thing to modern Ektar 100; the latter being a 21st century invention. A very good one at that; I recommend you try some!)

  7. Great photos – I live in Hastings and whilst it’s still pretty, I don’t think todays Hasting’s quite lives up to the 90s version in your photos!

    If you have time check out my post on my trip back home to Hastings
