"I couldn't believe it!": Amateur photographer's shock after spotting 'God' in the clouds above Norfolk

The saying goes that God moves in mysterious ways and apparently he's been seen over Snettisham in west Norfolk.

An amateur photographer spotted a certain likeness in the clouds over The Wash, between Norfolk and Lincolnshire.

His name is Jeremy Fletcher and he regularly uses his phone to take pictures of the countryside, even in his lunch hour.

But it was while he was taking an evening stroll on the shore at Snettisham in Norfolk that he noticed a God-like figure staring back at him from the clouds.

Mr Fletcher, speaking exclusively to ITV News Anglia, says he's still pinching himself.

"After the first two or three pictures I looked at what I had on my phone, and I couldn't believe the image that was on there!

It was so clearly a face in the sky looking straight back at me.

Immediately, I thought it looked like God. That was my first impression, and I've thought about it subsequently and it may well be Sean Connery or Karl Marx or even Charles Darwin!"

– Jeremy Fletcher

Mr Fletcher, who's from Berkshire, is in Norfolk on a three-month attachment as a finance director.

Meanwhile, cloud experts say faces or other unusual shapes are often seen as sun glints break through clouds at either dawn or dusk.

It's a phenomenon known as crepuscular rays.
