back to the coast: the lavender marsh at Thornham
Whilst looking out a large sketchbook (A3) to work in this morning I came across this plein air painting I'd forgotten about.
This is the salt marsh at Thornham in Norfolk, when the sea lavender is in flower it creates this lovely mauve haze over the vegetation with its millions of tiny flowers. The tree stumps were once part of a wood that has been swamped by the sea and are worn, grooved and weathered to pale ghosts.
There is a salt marsh harbour here on the main creek accessible to boats only at high tide.
