Exploring Waldringfield

View Across The Deben at Sunrise

Waldringfield is a village and civil parish situated around 4 miles south of the town of Woodbridge on the bank of the River Deben. It’s a place that’s been on my list for a little while. Having visited The Maybush Pub in the past, situated in the same spot, I’d never actually planned a morning visit to the river itself.

I was in a little bit of a funk with my photography towards the end of last year, and going into 2022, I wanted to capture a different view of the landscape. I figured that it would be good to explore somewhere new. After spending the last few months exploring local heaths and woodland, it was time to get back to the sea.

I was armed with my Fujifilm X-T3 and 33mm f/1.4. I’d purchased this lens just before Christmas after moving on the 35mm f/2 previously. I have to say, this lens is fantastic! It’s often compared with Fujifilm’s earlier offering, the 35mm f/1.4. Having owned both, I would say that this offering is somewhat more clinical in its rendering. Not in a bad way by any means, but the 35mm is most definitely a “character” lens, much in the same way that the 56mm f/1.2 is. The 33mm is very much suited to the modern Fujifilm sensors and its colour rendition is spot on.
