Sunday Picture Post: Early on a Spring Day

Friday 19th March – the day before the vernal equinox – the Met Office forecast suggested I might catch a sunrise

Screenshot from Met Office website: Gt Yarmouth 19 March 2021

But with the sunrise scheduled for 5:59 I needed to be out early

19 March 2021

Downriver from Haven Bridge; towards Breydon Water beyond Breydon Bridge

19 March 2021

Like Lot’s wife, I glance back… the awaited event must be nigh

19 March 2021

And here the sun shows herself, no mist nor clouds to hide her

19 March 2021

For an hour or so after, the sun tints the clouds and gilds the grasses

19 March 2021

As the sun rises she casts blinding light over Breydon Water

19 March 2021

Soon I acquire a walking companion who stays always slightly ahead…waddling

19 March 2021

And geese take to the air

19 March 2021

Low tide, a film of water covers the mud and reflects the blue sky. Beautiful.

And the much-photographed Berney Arms Mill

19 March 2021

As the path enters Burgh Castle, Spring greets us full frontal…

19 March 2021

Burgh Castle with its Roman ruins… a good place to stop for a coffee from my flask

19 March 2021

I choose a different route back… along a flooded lane

19 March 2021

and a track that takes me back to Breydon

19 March 2021

The photo doesn’t show that the trees either side are pussy willows (I’ll show you that in Tuesday Treat)

19 March 2021

A last look at Spring… until Tuesday Treat

Hope you enjoyed the walk

    I did! You’ve made me really want to walk there. We’re very dead in the landscape, here.

  8. A beautiful sunrise, I can’t seem to get myself up early enough for one when I’m not at work! Although it’ll be later again next weekend.
