Church steeple rises above radiation fog creating sunset spectacle in English village

These stunning pictures show a church steeple rising from thick ‘radiation fog’ covering a village at sunset.
The majestic scene was captured in the small community of Southrepps, Norfolk on Friday afternoon.
Radiation fog – where cold land cools the air moving over it causing its moisture to condense – can be seen settled in a thick blanket over the houses.

Only the tall spire of the village’s St James Parish Church can be seen in the shrouded landscape.
Professional drone operator James Horne, who lives in Southrepps, decided to record the weather phenomenon.

The 45-year-old said: ‘Initially the fog was too thick but it got to a point where it was clearing. It just looked quite surreal to see the church tower poking through the fog.’
James, who runs commercial drone operating firm BlueSky UAV, took the footage on a 10-minute flight.
He added: ‘It’s something you don’t normally see. When you’re on the ground, it’s just another fog but up there it’s beautiful.’
