Week 48, 2017 Colour sketch challenge

Between Snape and Iken

A Friday afternoon sketch this week on a cold afternoon with a brisk cold wind but with glorious sunshine. This view was part way towards Iken on the footpath from Snape Maltings, I thought I was heading further towards Iken, then this view across the mud came into view with its warm colours of the still slightly autumnal trees on the far side of the River. All across the mud were feeding Redshanks with a few Little Egrets in the distance.

Day 176, of my 2016 sketch a day challenge

Iken Church

Sitting on a spit that juts out into the River Alde is the church of St Botolph at Iken. It is believed that a church has sat on this site for over 1300 years. A footpath close to Iken church allows you to walk along the shore line to Snape Maltings this view being from that footpath.
