Norfolk Broads based photographer, Stephen Mole, returns to Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden at South Walsham, with an exhibition of photographs featuring iconic Norfolk landscapes. ‘Images of Norfolk’ runs from Saturday, November 18 to Sunday, November 26, open 10am to 4pm daily. Entry to the exhibition is free (normal entry charge for garden).
Stephen Mole said: “Born and bred in Norfolk, I have always been inspired by the wide open skies and wonderful light that makes this part of the world so special. I try to photograph images that not only record the beauty of the county, but also portray my own ‘impression’ of the place. My aim is to give you a glimpse of just how the world looks through my eyes! I feel I’ve succeeded if the person looking at the image finds themselves thinking ‘I wish was I was there’. It’s wonderful to be invited again to Fairhaven Garden. I’m looking forward to returning there and staging an exhibition for the fourth time.”
