West Norfolk has often laid claim to being “God’s Own County” so perhaps this extraordinary photograph gives that claim some credence
During turbulent weather the clouds momentarily parted at sunset to reveal the image of the God-like bearded man.
The picture was taken by interim company finance director Jeremy Fletcher, 56, from the seashore at Snettisham looking out to The Wash.
The face is looking straight back at Mr Fletcher.
Mr Fletcher, of Bray, Berkshire, was in the area for a three-month attachment with a company and took the photograph on an evening stroll along the beach at Snettisham.
He said: “I realised the image looked remarkably like a face of a man with a beard so I took a number of shots on my phone. The face appeared to be looking back towards the shore. The obvious comment is that it looks like God but it could also be Sean Connery or Karl Marx.”
Lynn county councillor Charles Joyce, 62, said: “Everyone who lives here knows Norfolk is a bit special and now it seems to have been confirmed from above.”
