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.

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.
