Wensum river bank in Fakenham

River Wensum riverbank

The River Wensum runs through the town of Fakenham in Norfolk, which happens to be the town I was born and raised in. My parent still live in Fakenham, so I quite often visit and take pictures of all the places which have changed so much since I was a boy. Although the paths and fields around the river have changed, the general layout and look of the river remains the same as it was when I used to live in the town.

This picture of the Wensum River bank was taken a couple of years ago now in August 2011, with a Pentax K-r camera and Tamron 10-24mm super wide angle lens.

I did some post processing in Lightroom to boost the image colour and bring out the shadow details, along with a small reduction in the clarity to soften some of the river bank grass.

I’m a software developer by profession but I’ve been taking pictures since I was about 8 years old. In that time I’ve owned cameras of all types and sizes from 120 roll film thro’ 35mm to my current Pentax K-5, Ricoh GXR + P10/S10/A12 28mm/A12 50mm, Canon S95 and recently acquired Sony NEX 6.

    1. Thanks Pat – yes it is. My Gran used to sit on that bench whilst we played round the river about 45 years ago !
