Burnham Overy Staithe - The Village

After a well needed sunny weekend it's back to business on SC and my next postings will mainly be taken from our Norfolk holiday, with a few others thrown in here and there, and, as you will see, the odd twiddle here and there as well.

My posting of 18th.September was of this little Norfolk  inlet from the sea and this picture is taken looking back from the bank in the background of the earlier picture at the village.  You can also just catch sight of the windmill in the background which I believe is owned by the National Trust and is rented out for holiday accomodation.

You will note we are back to our normal holiday weather and shortly after this it poured with rain.

What a nice walking path you are on. Glad you had good holiday weather.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mary, the path, behind me, goes right out across the salt marshes to the sea some distance away.

Ohhhhh. The windmill in the background...I had to look for it hard, Brian! Have you thought of using the other template for these landscape shots so that they would be larger on the page? I would LOVE to see this larger!!!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ginnie, this is quite a small crop from a larger image and the original has far too much bare foreground in it, hence the pseudo panorame format.

A lovely picture of a rural ideal! I do like the feeling of peace and quite that this portrays.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan, it is a lvely part of England round this area and yes it is very quiet.
Ah ...the Londoners paradise ... buying up all the local properties. Good image Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, property prices round this way are sky high, as you suggest, Londoners and weekend retreats I suppose.
Oh that is a wonderful panorama of a place I particularly liked when I was in Norfolk Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris, there are umpteen little places like this along this part of the Norfolk coast.

This is one part of the world I don't know at all but I see it shares the flat landscape and big skies of Lincolnshire, where I used to live. The village looks very pretty nestled in the bend of the river. I second Ginnie's comment - this template is just too small for landscapes such as this.

Brian Walbey: Thanks ingrid, so you know Lincolnshire then, some of it is not a lot different than this part of Norfolk edging the Wash, although I think the latter is more photogenic. The crop is semi-panoramic because there is a lot of uninteresting footpath and river bank in the foreground of the full frame.
Love the narrow crop but I too would like to see this bigger. It deserves to be
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill, look me up on Wednesday and tell me what you think.
