When the world was Brown

Ed is a truck driving photographer from Tennessee who hosts a photography challenge blog called Sunday Stills here on WordPress.

This week Ed would like to see something BROWN.

Ed wants us to think outside the box – now that comes easy to me as I am always thinking of unusual ways to interpret a challenge. So perversely my entry this week is quite safe – images of the North Norfolk coast in last year’s winter snow when everything was bleached of any colour with the exception of a natural brown palette.

I admit to using a sepia effect on the header photo, but the rest of the images are as seen, with some slight processing of saturation and levels.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. I love the wintery bleak colours of Norfolk and and is quietness and I think your outside the box thinking is great! Beautiful impressions of one my favourite landscapes, Jude. I agree, in summertime it’s too busy, especially on the coast road. Phew! And then the rip off due to all the rich holiday makers, aiaiai. In Cley, Rhu Sila lies quietly tucked away on the Church Lane and only the hikers on the Peddar’s way passes by. It was green and yellow everywhere when I left on Thursday.
    Love, Dina

    1. Thank you for your lovely comment Dina. You are lucky to live in such a peaceful location. House prices in this country are way too expensive for ordinary people and a lot of that is due to second homes in lovely places where they lie empty most of the year.

      It is so nice to see everything starting to grow, shiny new buds, blossom, shoots and leaves all gleaming in their spring coats. A bit dull today, but sun forecast tomorrow, so I may head for a garden 🙂
      Have a good weekend Dina, all the best
