Sunday Picture Post: New Year’s Blues

With no desire to bring you down, yet our walk from Great Yarmouth to Gorleston beach was mostly undertaken in blue light. There was a heavy fog. Temperatures below freezing. But in the early dawn, it was wondrously quiet!!! We enjoyed it. I hope you will too.

That fog makes even the power station look ethereal

Looking downriver to the ONE ship in port

The Vos Glory

A sad-looking gull; no one out fishing today

The sun attempts to shine through but the clouds aren’t having it

The lighthouse… it overlooks the river’s pool (where the ships turn)

A solitary turnstone; he prefers the sparse findings on the pier to those on the beach. Why? Cos the tide is high

Have you ever seen that sea so quiet? Oh, and look. Four hardy swimmers!

Splash

Colour. At last! Some beefy dog’s paw-prints in the sand

1st Jan 2021

What, more colour? Groynes, almost lost beneath the sand

1st Jan 2021

A lone marker

1st Jan 2021

People begin to appear… with dogs. Must be getting on for 10:00 am. Oh yes, so it is

1st Jan 2021

And the sun slips through the clouds

1st Jan 2021

While on the prom the beach huts remain shuttered until the summer

1st Jan 2021

A stately ascent…

1st Jan 2021

Frozen, the boating lake… pond… pool (for model yachts)

1st Jan 2021

This time of year, the gulls take to skating…

1st Jan 2021

Colour! The sun lights up the Pavilion Theatre. No pantomime this year

1st Jan 2021

And wildflowers bloom on the river’s side

1st Jan 2021

We then walked back to Great Yarmouth. Not a huge hike. About 6 or 7 miles. Since then the weather has been foul; essential shopping trips only. But next week… fingers crossed

  4. Thanks for sharing your photography. Here in central Ohio, the sun finally made an appearance after about 12 days hiding behind the overcast, gray clouds.

    The Blues of winter are spectacular. I love the slow progression to colour.

    I love the blue light — it looks positively magical! Like the whole world is under a spell. I’m impressed that you were able to capture it so well on “film” too; such effects don’t always translate well to photographs.
