No 3 looks like the coast at Cley/Salthouse Norfolk
No 4 might be the bridge over the Glaven between Wiveton and Cley

MarcLee: For me, a photography-lover lamenting the loss of Jessop's is like a coffee-lover lamenting the loss of Starbucks. Both bought up, and tried to drive out, good small retailers and replaced them with less good service.

Certainly the case in Stevenage-moved next door to the long established independent who went out of business a year or so later.
Admittedly most of the good staff ended up working for Jessops for a while, and for a few years it was a good shop to visit. High prices, lack of stock and poor service finished this branch off.

On article Dpreview Users' Poll: Best Camera of 2012? (1507 comments in total)

Its been an incredible year with many excellent cameras coming out so it was difficult to decide, but had to go with the D800. Medium format image quality in a small dslr body and at a comparatively cheap price swung it in the end.
Beginning to appreciate the qualities of micro four thirds though, and the new Olympus bodies-OMD EM-5 and E-PL5 are superb. Had a chance to play with them recently, and am seriously considering one as I need a compact always with me camera-though the superb RX100 fits the bill too.
Just read the LuLa RX1 review, thats something special, as are the Sigma Merrils...

Spent quite some time failing to download via the website, but one of the Rapidshare links worked just fine.
Looks to be a good read, thanks for sharing with us.
