Norfolk is famed for its countryside full
of churches, charming rural villages, the
windmills of the Norfolk Broads and wide,
ever changing skies. It encompasses a
variety of landscapes from woodlands to
wetlands. The weather creates an endless
variety of light effects from unexpected
shafts of sunlight piercing a stormy sky to
the silvery quality of a crisp winter dawn
or the radiance or a summer sunset. The
photography in Romantic Norfolk captures
this superb landscape to perfection.
Published as a companion to The Romantic
Norfolk Coast, these two books represent
a personal selection of the photographer’s
Norfolk born photographer, John Duckett,
focuses on capturing the unique skies and
cloudscapes of the county, making best
use of the more dramatic light found at
dawn and dusk. Whether resident or
visitor, the reader will enjoy the superb
images of Norfolk’s unique countryside as
presented in this book.
John Duckett's interest in photography began in
his teens and he has developed his
unique style through experience and
experimentation with different camera
settings and filters. For many years he
worked in sales, covering the whole of
Norfolk and this has stirred his passion
for seeing how the light can completely
change the atmosphere of a landscape.
In recent years he has settled in north
Norfolk and devotes more time and
passion to his work as a photographer.
