We are very fortunate to live in a beautiful part of the country.
A stunning coastline, charming villages, picturesque, unspoiled landscapes, the wide skies which have inspired generations of artists – we have it all. Except mountains, perhaps!
Now we want to celebrate our wonderful surroundings with a new EADT series called My Favourite View. We want you to send us photographs of the view in Suffolk or north Essex which means the most to you. It might be an iconic image of one of our best-known beauty spots, or perhaps a view which brings back special memories for you.
I have to admit that the idea for this series came to me when an iwitness photograph of my favourite Suffolk scene was sent to us. It shows the view from the wall walk at Framlingham Castle, across the mere, to my old school, Framlingham College. The view looking the other way is just as breathtaking, I can assure you!
Then, at the weekend, I was further inspired by being treated to another extraordinary view. This was from the roof of the Martello Tower at Shingle Street, where some friends of ours were staying. Wow, what a view that is! Looking north, you can see all the way to the Orfordness lighthouse, and to the south there is Bawdsey and Felixstowe. Yes, you can see the cranes at the port!
It’s such a bleak, yet beautiful and evocative place. What REALLY happened there after the hamlet was evacuated during the Second World War? Will we ever know?
Every day, we’re sent fantastic photos by our readers. There’s a tiny selection here, all of which show wonderful views. Send us your favourite!
Send your pictures in using our iwitness service, visit suffolk.iwitness24.co.uk, or email your pictures to email@example.com. Please mark them My Favourite View.
