Putting out the Crab pots: X-E1 and Zeiss Touit 32mm

I’ve been on my holidays this last week, in the village of Overstrand in North Norfolk. It’s really lovely here, and the scorching weather has helped make this into a special holiday.

In any event I couldn’t really hold myself back from posting about watching the local fishing boat being towed to the edge of the beach by a (very rusty) old tractor and going off into the surf to deposit its cargo of empty crab pots.

It might have been the rather lovely light or way it caught the rust on the tractor, but it was an amazing sight to watch. About 20 minutes later, the boat returned and way pulled back up the beach to its place on the sea defences. I’m reliably informed that the crab caught by this boat is very tasty…

I’m falling in love with the way the Zeiss Touit 32mm lens renders on the X-E1, it’s just excellent.
