Morning Frost, West Sussex

Christmas isn’t the coldest time of the year in the UK. In December, we can usually relax because the coldest months for us are January and February, So, after a relativly wet Christmas, the weather has turned increasingly colder and finally we having really hard frosts – as you can see in these photographs. ThisContinue reading “Morning Frost, West Sussex”

At ZSL London Zoo, London

As I’m writing this, in the UK we have just entered our third official lockdown, so I thought I would write about a visit I made to ZSL London Zoo early last year, just before our first lockdown. ZSL London Zoo is located on the edge of Regent’s Park, which while in central London, isn’tContinue reading “At ZSL London Zoo, London”

Yachts, Shoreham Beach

During October, we had some lovely weather in Shoreham, which made it feel like a gradual change from summer into autumn. At the time, the COVID number had slumped and people felt more comfortable being away from home. As you can see, the Sun shone and lots of people took the opportunity to take theirContinue reading “Yachts, Shoreham Beach”

Morning Frost, West Sussex

Right now, like many people in the UK, I’m living in lockdown again! I think I’ve written it before, but one of the things I have appreciated this year, has been the opportunity to notice the passing seasons. I particularly remember the change from spring into early summer, and now, with the hard frost thisContinue reading “Morning Frost, West Sussex”

Dog on the Beach, West Sussex

After what has seemed like weeks of rain, yesterday, we had a few hours of sunshine, so I went to the beach. It was warm enough to sit on the pebbles and watch the waves for a couple of hours, so pretty mild for mid-December. In the photo, the sea looks much flatter than itContinue reading “Dog on the Beach, West Sussex”

Evening Sky, Horsham

Time passes. This photo is from a test roll I did on a (new to me) camera. I think it was mid-evening when I took it and as you can see, the Sun is setting. As I’m writing this, it is a similar time of day – but it is completely dark outside (and hasContinue reading “Evening Sky, Horsham”

Thanksgiving, Shoreham Beach

I was going to write about life on the beach – but then I noticed the date – and decided that I would write about Thanksgiving instead. In the UK we tend to slowly take on things from the US – liablity lawyers, Adam Sandler – all the good stuff. But I do think weContinue reading “Thanksgiving, Shoreham Beach”

Trees in Fog, West Sussex

I think I have walked around the park every day since the first lockdown. Normally, in the noise of work and rush, the seasons tend to pass outside the window, but because we have all been at home I have been able to notice the changes in the weather as the seasons pass. As youContinue reading “Trees in Fog, West Sussex”

Trees in Moonlight, West Sussex

My first post of the second lockdown! I’m back to walking in the park either early in the morning, or late at night, when sensible people are snug in bed. I missed the full moon (which was smothered by thick cloud anyway), but I’m still pleased with the amount you can see. In reality, itContinue reading “Trees in Moonlight, West Sussex”
