he 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.

Today is the fourth anniversary of this blog and I would like to thank all who have visited the site and, particularly, those who have ‘stayed the course’ and passed comment. Your support is valuable and is truly appreciated.
I am marking the occasion by re-publishing below the very first post. Unsurprisingly, at the time it was scarcely noticed – just a handful of views and no ‘likes’. Here you have it.
‘May is the month when the poppy brings a vibrant splash of colour to the garden. Often, overnight, the furry green protective shell of the bud explodes, exposing the tissue-like petals of the new flower. Backlit by the afternoon sun, the petals produce a palette of shades ranging from yellow to deep red.
It was a frustrating morning – there were so many things I needed to do in the garden before Open Garden Day. But there were compensations. The trickles of rain on the window pane diffused the colours and shapes in the flower bed and created delightful, pastel abstract patterns.
