Norfolk abstracts

The combination of snow and sand windswept into formations was an intriguing phenomenon . I like the completeness of the image with various points of interest (grasses, prints, snow lines, etc) distributed across the frame.

I had a great couple of days in North Norfolk and encountered quite a few new species that I had never seen before, and had some amazing views too.
