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”

Feather, West Sussex

After what has felt like age, it has finally rained. In the UK we have had several weeks of hot weather, so this has felt very welcome. I found this feather on some park land I like to walk on every morning – I’m trying to decide what sort of bird it came from –Continue reading “Feather, West Sussex”

Lavender, West Sussex

Writing this, in early August 2020, I hope things are well with you. How are you spending lockdown? For my part, I’m so be getting into different routines – here I was just about to water some lavender seedlings – when I thought I would take a quick photo. For some reason, i thought thatContinue reading “Lavender, West Sussex”

Bullocks in the Morning, West Sussex

This field, is next to the parkland where I walk every morning. As you can see, it is used as pasture land. It is tempting to think of landscapes as unchanging, but there is quite a rapid turnover in livestock and I am sure that if I see them again next week, there will beContinue reading “Bullocks in the Morning, West Sussex”

Tree in the Morning, West Sussex

Another morning walk picture. How has being in lockdown affected you? What do you do differently to before? I was going to write that I get up earlier, but that’s not true. I used to get up at 5am before, but then it was because I had to get ready for work, where as now,Continue reading “Tree in the Morning, West Sussex”

Frost, West Sussex

A preCovid-19 picture, from January this year. This is a picture of the roof of my car. I think I was walking to the station, when I saw these frost patterns on the roof – so I took a picture. The patterns in the ice make me think of feathers, why they have formed likeContinue reading “Frost, West Sussex”

Raindrops, West Sussex

After what seems like weeks of sunshine, finally thick, grey clouds appeared and heavy rain fell. Went outside for a while to enjoy the cool breeze and splashes of rain. One of the positive things about the lockdown has been more time to enjoy my garden. What I liked here, where the little spheres ofContinue reading “Raindrops, West Sussex”
