Under big skies : Norfolk

Our home country of Norfolk is known for big skies. The land is generally flat so I suppose it gives you more sky to look at.  Nothing or not much to block the clouds or blue view!

This posting includes photographs taken only in Norfolk with, what I hope, are some nice looking skies.

This first one is a misty view of dunes and sky with the village if Winterton on Sea as a distant backdrop.  The church is the only thing visible as a silhouette.  It was taken on one of our regular ‘home’ walks back in January 2017.

Just last weekend we saw the sun setting at the end of a long walk near Waxham.  Once again taken from a dune which I had frantically scrambled up (through brambles!) from a lower footpath.  Not hugely dramatic but i was pleased with it after my efforts.

Sometimes it’s what’s moving through the sky that grabs your attention!  A lunch stop on the beach near Horsey. Had to be quick with the camera.

If we’re just out for a picnic we take our trusty Sportbrella and pitch it wherever we like.  That orange glow looks best under moody skies!  This is Weybourne in North Norfolk.

More often than not its that typical Norfolk scene that we love, it’s how Norfolk is recognised.  This is Horsey Mill recently renovated to its former glory.

New Year : A year of walking (approx 700 miles)

A quick look back over the last twelve months and that has meant checking through lots and lots of photos of us – almost all of them with our walking boots on, striding out and ticking off the miles.  Phew we’ve really have done quite a lot.  With the weather having been so grey over the last few weeks it’s been a treat to see so many ‘sunny’ photos.

Inspired by a photographic challenge with the word ‘Walking’ here’s a quick review of our year with a single photo for each season.  Thanks Sue and GC, this was an easy one for me to take part in!

Winter (in the Lake District, Cumbria)

Spring (Devon)

Summer (Norfolk, oh my goodness it was so warm)

Autumn (Norfolk – see it’s not all flat ground in our home county!)

Happy New Year everyone.  Sorry I’m so late.  Hope it’s a happy and healthy one.
