Cromer battled the waves today as strong gusts of wind and high spring tides saw the seafront take a soaking.
Flood alerts were issued across Norfolk and Suffolk’s coastline for much of the day, (Tuesday, January 8).
But these colourful photos of the sunrise, captured just hours before forecasters began to warn of the flood risk, are a perfect example of the calm before the storm.
Photographer Peter Cheney shot the images during the early morning of Monday, January 7, in Cromer.
The three photos show the glowing orange sunlight breaking through a solid mass of grey clouds above the beach, and the silhouettes of the town’s buildings along the seafront.
The peaceful pictures were a contrast to the stormy shots shared on the Enjoy Cromer More Facebook page on Tuesday, where waves battered the coast and pier.
