A crisp, frosty walk on the Norfolk coast path at sunrise

One of the joys of winter in Blakeney is to wake up early and find the coast path hard and crispy underfoot with frost and ice. This was taken on a walk from Blakeney to Morston and back, when the sun was just beginning to make its presence felt above the silhouette of Blakeney church.

Video: the crashing waves of the North Sea in November


As I kayaked across the still waters of Blakeney Harbour, I could hear the roar of the waves crashing on the other side of the Point. Every so often a plume of white spray rose behind the Watch House and sea bank.

Pulling the kayak up high away from the tide, I walked across the narrow spit of land and down to where the North Sea was churning the beach shingle in a fierce, winter temper. The waves were mesmerising in the pale, early sun.
