The fire of a winter sunset

Taken in Blakeney Cut this evening. The sky just seemed to become more and more intense as I took a brief walk with the dog, until it made the mud glow with pinks and orange.

Sunset sooner, softer

The clocks went back at the weekend and suddenly the evening walk with the dog has become the afternoon walk again. The light was golden and soft today, diffused through the soft whisps of the marsh plants. Winter often provides the best sunsets.

Sunrise time-lapse over Blakeney and Cley marshes

Sunrise timelapse over Blakeney and Cley marsh

The sun rises about a quarter past seven at this time of year, emerging from the low hills behind Cley as you look back across the fresh water marsh from Blakeney. If you’re lucky, you see the silhouette of Cley windmill emerging and the swaying reeds bathed in the glowing light.

This was shot as a video over about twenty minutes on a morning dog walk, then edited afterwards to speed it up.
