Cows in Field, West Sussex

This is from last summer. I know I have titled this cows – but I have a feeling these are really bullocks. On the farmland near where I live there is always a fairly continuous turnover of livestock. And as you can see here, the field now contains sheep. As subjects, they are quite differentContinue reading “Cows in Field, West Sussex”

Pheasant, West Sussex

Walking in the rain isn’t much fun. More recently, there has been a fair amount of it on my daily walks and this morning, I almost left my camera on its hook (making one less thing to dry out afterwards). But I didn’t. And, as you can see, when I saw this bird as IContinue reading “Pheasant, West Sussex”

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”

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”

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”

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”

The Causeway, Horsham

The Causeway is a street in the old town of Horsham. The Causeway runs from Carfax (which is the old centre of the town) to St Mary’s church. As I took this picture, a passerby stopped and commented that it was a view which hadn’t changed in hundreds of years. And he was probably right.Continue reading “The Causeway, Horsham”

Morning Sun, West Sussex

How has your life changed in the last few months? One of the things I like about life now, are my early morning walks on the parkland near where I live. When I was working, my morning was dominated by my need to get to work – which was always some way away from whereContinue reading “Morning Sun, West Sussex”
