photoblog image Burnham Overy 5/5

Burnham Overy 5/5

Between Burnham Overy Staithe and the sea, the river spreads out into multiple tidal creeks through the salt marshes that fringe this stretch of coast, and finally reaches the sea by passing though the fronting sand dunes at a gap locally known as Burnham Harbour. Small boats can reach Burnham Overy Staithe through this gap and creek. Today Burnham Overy Staithe, and the associated harbour, is a major recreational sailing centre. It is also the point of departure for ferries to the Scolt Head Island National Nature Reserve.

 

Chris thought this one from Saturday might look o.k.in Sepia, what do you think?

I like the sepia version
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris.
I do like your POV in the top image, Brian. And, YES, of course the bottom image looks GREAT in sepia!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ginnie.

Chris is right and I so love your series here. What an amazing photogenic little town and harbour this is.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Astrid. This is one of several villages in the area all called Burnham 'something or other', together they make a nice place to visit.

This shows the area very well Brian.
Brian Walbey: The less touristy part of North Norfolk once again.
I think Chris was right. This whole series could be made to look 100 years old!
Brian Walbey: I hadn't thought of that, there isn't much 'modern in the pictures is there.

The bright fenders on the boat moored in the waterway add some colour to the scene. The sea version of your Saturday image works very well.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan.

That sepia is so perfect. I am currently struggling with a combination picture of all my grandchildren being treated to ice cream. The end result should be in sepia - but the different exposures are proving to be troublesome.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Louis. I ust admit I enjoy doing collages as you know but combination images are something I've never really tried to do much of, I can imagine how difficult they can be.
I have enjoyed the boat pictures very much and do like the sepia.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mary.

Yes, I like the sepia version, the image looks like an old postcard.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Philine.
