As we bid farewell to 2013, we take a look back at some of the most memorable photographs taken during the year by EDP Photographers
You can always rely on the EDP’s team of talented photographers to capture the very essence of life in Norfolk.
And 2013 was no exception, as these fantastic photographs show. Every shot added a new page to the yearbook of memorable moments.
Our photographers took thousands of wonderful pictures over the course of a jam-packed 12 months.
They took photographs of a remarkably diverse range of subjects, as you can see from the images on this page.
There was the razzmatazz of Alan Partridge visiting his “home city” for the red carpet premiere of his hit film Alpha Papa at Anglia Square’s Hollywood Cinema.
There was The Queen’s visit to RAF Marham, where she craned her neck to take in the drama of a simulated airfield attack.
Great fun was had with the swashbucklers at the Maritime Festival on Great Yarmouth’s South Quay.
Insect wrangler Martin French was a great sport when we asked him to get up close and personal with the exotic creepy crawlies which became television stars.
One of the most peculiar jobs our photographers were tasked with was to take a picture of a Norfolk sausage – The Bunwell Banger – which had taken to posting comments on social networking site Twitter. But Denise Bradley found a way.
And you’ll not catch many photographers complaining when they get to go to the beach on a sunny day to take a picture or two of people happily soaking up the rays.
It was hard to choose just a few of the images from the past 12 months, which have included royal visits and the recent flooding which led to homes being destroyed.
Antony Kelly captured the festival atmosphere at Sheringham’s carnival parade when a pirate ship, a model of Tower Bridge and Chinese dragons all helped to mark the end of a week of events which brought fun, laughter and community spirit to the north Norfolk coast.
One of the most poignant pictures this year was the house cascading off the cliff after December’s floods brought turmoil to the Norfolk coastline.
Then there was the Archbishop of Canterbury’s visit when the Most Rev Justin Welby included a trip to the Forum, Norwich, in his UK pilgrimage.
And photographer James Bass captured the shocking picture of a red Audi which hurtled into a home in Carlton Colville.
