Impressions of the salt marshes

The salt marshes of North Norfolk  provide an endless source of inspiration for the creative artist  An atmosphere of quiet stillness is broken on by the occasional birdsong or, from time to time, a passing plane.  The moods and colours can change dramatically, and quickly, depending on changing weather conditions.

This series comprises a collection of impressions evoked by the marshes.  The longer the viewer can spend with each image the stronger will the sense of place become.

For each of the scenarios below, imagine you are standing, barefooted, at the water’s edge.  See the wave breaking, hear the sound. feel the movement of the water against your feet.  Relax!

Water wall in autumn sunlight

I imagine this as a large wall panel (perhaps 6 feet wide) on a white wall.

Chaos in the High Street!


The driveway between two of the houses in High Street [see the previous post],seems to have become, over time, the designated graveyard for redundant equipment and other jetsam.  It is a fascinating assortment that, no doubt, could tell many tales.  I was tempted to break the scene up to focus on  various item, but it has clearly not been disturbed in  years  –  why bother now?

Well, perhaps, just one!

No Parking

Blakeney, High Street

As mentioned in an earlier post,  (, there are strong echoes of past times in Blakeney.  High Street is narrow and there are no pavements.  It is bordered by sturdy but elegant, cobbled houses and properties, and (mostly) painted white.  Shops and businesses are assimilated within the overall character of the street.

The pictures below were taken at lunchtime on the first Saturday in October.  Blakeney is not a noisy place!
