I am local and a keen amateur photographer. I was taking my elderly father out for the day on Saturday. After fruit picking at Blofield and en route to Horsey Mill, dad wanted to go to Thurne. I saw this beautiful view at Oby and had to pull over in a passing place to take this snap on my iPhone.

By the time we got to Horsey for a cuppa, the weather changed and there was torrential rain and black skies.
