A beautiful photographic book about Cley and the surrounding countryside.
Cley, Seasons to be Cheerful is a photo diary by a person in love with her surroundings. Sarah has poured the passion for the landscape she lives in into this beautifully produced, casebound book. As well as landscape photography, as a keen naturalist, Sarah has included pictures of some of the wildlife she’s encountered on her walks – from fighting adders to mating hares.
The book centres on Cley but as Sarah sets off on her walks, she can end up in any of the neighbouring villages, including: Blakeney, Salthouse and Wiveton. Often using the North Norfolk Coast Path, Sarah’s photographs cover this Area of Outstanding National Beauty throughout the seasons. From frost-covered reedbeds to the raging pinks of the summer marsh. The author’s love for this area is plain to see; the photographs reflect the unique light on the North Norfolk Coast. Sarah prefers to capture the atmosphere, light and mood of the landscape rather than the details within. Sea frets, sunset and misty mornings are her favourite time to take pictures.
