Hadleigh Castle in September 2013 issue of Essex Life magazine
This aerial photograph of Hadleigh Castle in Essex is one of my top ten favourite aerial photos I have taken thus far.
Although there are only ruins left, the hilltop area has some great views over the Estuary to Leigh and sea and much more. It’s a great area for a walk or a picnic or just to play games with the family.
I have been going up to Hadleigh Castle since I was a child and my father used to play up there as a boy as well, so the area has served our family well for fresh air, relaxing or playtime.
Essex definitely has beautiful countryside, and this photo proves it – you can even see people walking or sitting round the castle from the air which are captured in this photo.
So, I am delighted that this photograph has made it onto the front cover of Essex Life magazine this issue (September 2013) and I hope you will enjoy taking in the view that I captured that day.
I have many more aerial photos from all around Essex (all for sale as Continue reading

Essex life magazine front cover my aerial photo of mersea island essex copyright Sandra M Dean
Although not officially credited in the magazine, I provided the photo for the front cover of Essex Life magazine for this month’s May edition, which came out yesterday!
It has been changed a little, but looks fabulous and I am very proud of it, as it takes in virtually the whole of Mersea Island, Essex in the sunshine.
I have many more aerial and static photos of Essex, Yorkshire, Scotland, the Orkneys and other places, so if you’d like to see if I have your hometown, why not email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
I am pleased to say that my aerial photos of Essex, Yorkshire and the Orkney Islands have been very successful.
I have now supplied to South Woodham Ferrers (Essex) Council for their website here: http://www.southwoodhamferrerstc.gov.uk/aerial-photograph . Also, The Royal Geographic Society bought one for their new project ‘Discovering Britain’ which is a series of walks that will help people to explore and discover the beauty, wildlife and landscapes of Britain. I supplied to them a photo of Two tree Island, Essex. The website is in progress so my photo and the walks are not on there yet, but do check it out soon and maybe you can discover Britain too! http://www.discoveringbritain.org
Yorkshire Life and Essex Life magazine have printed various photos and on top of that, I have sold Essex, Yorkshire and Orkney Scotland aerial photos to various private buyers, who wanted to give them as presents to loved ones. It’s a great idea as a present, birthday, Christmas or otherwise and I have supplied photos through the postal service as well as emailing j-pegs directly
I have aerial photos of many areas of Britain and my prices are well under other peoples, so if you think I might have a photo to suit, Continue reading

Whitney (Shona McGarty) and Fatboy (Ricky Norwood) on Eastenders set for August 2011 show in Southend on sea essex
Well, we all know that Southend on sea is known for its visitors from the East End, as it’s a popular beach and day trip spot, but this week the cast of ‘Eastenders’ were in town, filming clips to be aired over the August bank holiday weekend, I was told.
I saw them today (Saturday) as they filmed for most of the day along Westcliff Parade, by the Westcliff Hotel – Eastenders characters Whitney (Shona McGarty), Fatboy (Ricky Norwood), Shirley and Heather were there. It just goes to show how hard they all have to work, as they had to repeat shots/scenses time and time again.
It is about time Eastenders came to Southend as many of the residents agreed. As they left at the end of the day, I was so pleased that a very smiley Linda Henry (aka Shirley) stopped to sign a picture of herself and Cheryl Ferguson (Heather) we had in the Echo – as my Mum is a big fan. She also posed for a lovely photo with my Mum. Very nice too. Unfortunately, Cheryl was in a rush so didn’t stop but the whole thing had a good atmosphere, with plenty of ‘extra’s’ happy to talk to us as well as some of the crew. Their day can start by getting out of bed at 5am and finishing at 9pm, so the job is far from glamourous and that was easy to understand watching them today.
They will be coming back to the area to film for another couple of days, but that’s all for this week as they have been in Southend all week, staying at the Westcliff Hotel, the Roslin Hotel and others. Continue reading
