Cracker, David. Well done.

This was my favourite fishing spot when I was growing up in Wigan.

A 'big sky' Wigan-style, … Norfolk indeed.

The grand farewell at the end of a glorious day!

Comment by: Poet on 5th August 2018 at 11:51

Cornets call the final chord of the smelting sun,
Brassing the horizon with their silent sound.
Blowing softly upon the embers.

Rags of cloud unweave in the sky's pavilion,
Unscrolling over the metallic water
Of the sunken cut,
This one summer evening.

That's just beautiful David.

Mr G !! The sky in Norfolk is undoubtly bigger than the Wigan style (!!)especially where I live. No highrise buildings one side & the North Sea on the other, cant get much bigger than that Mr G.....its still a beautiful photo David, cant argue with that

Just fabulous, well done!

Thank you David, this photo is superb, it lifts one’s spirits. A glorious shot!

Comment by: Veronica on 5th August 2018 at 13:54

Helen/ Philip the skies in Norfolk are extremely big - I'm looking forward to seeing them in September!

Poet - “rags of cloud..” - these have certainly been a rarity over the past few weeks’ heatwave.

Once again you’ve enhanced this beautiful photo with your poetry. Many thanks.

Helen/Veronica. I guess that you'll both be aware of the many splendid watercolour paintings of Blakeney and its big skies, that have been painted by amateur and professional artists, over the years - very popular subjects yon marshes, and dried-up watercourses. Hope you manage to take-in the Dad's Army filming locations, Veronica - and perhaps Helen has already done so. Thanks.

Stunning. You can almost feel the chill of evening. Why would anyone want to go anywhere else? This beauty is on our doorstep.

"This beauty is on our doorstep."

Spot on Irene. After 25 years in Canada, a beautiful country, I couldn't wait to walk up at Red Rock and through Dean Wood and Porters Wood and many other places in my lovely Wigan.

Philip, manys the time we have walked to Weybourne Station ( of Dads Army fame ) & sat & had a mug of tea, watching the trains go by....Blakeney as beautiful as it is is the beginings of Chelsea on Sea !!

Comment by: Philip G. on 6th August 2018 at 10:29

Thanks for your kind reply Helen.
So you've 'bagged' Weybourne Station eh? Capital, Capital.
And Blakeney continues to be a popular location for artists one of whom had been Gerald Ackermann - lovely stuff he did. Regards.
