Norfolk skies

There's certainly a lot of sky in Norfolk, sometimes eye-catching, sometimes not. I quite like the simplicity/minimalism of some of these. All views welcome!

Grand skies indeed, John. The stark minimalism and tiny humans of the first three work wonderfully. Of the cloudy images, I prefer #4, especially as the diagonal light seems to mirror the water in #3 just above.

A good set. It is the first three that really appeal to me.

Thanks, Serge and Nigel. I'm glad you agree, Serge, on the contribution of the tiny figures - a focal point definitely needed to emphasis the vastness. How to make the vastness of the reed beds interesting with not much brightness in the view was a problem. Fortunately the skies were as you see them and I thought a touch of HDR processing brought out more detail, though others may disagree about that.

That's a nice set - my preference is for 4 to 7, the more dramatic clouds over the reeds works for me

No 3 was my initial thought as my favourite; however n0 6 is growing on me with the patches of light across the landscape

A great set. The first three I find are really striking.

The beach ones. As has been said, the inclusion of a tiny figure transforms the result.

The beautiful collection of pictures! The second one where there is a tiny figure looks creative!

Thanks for all the further comments. The contrast in weather over a couple of days on the north Norfolk coast around Wells, Blakeney and Holkham produced the difference in cloud cover which made such a difference. I don't think the first three would have been half as appealing with grey skies.
