Worthing Pier, West Sussex

It is strange how seasons change from the edges, the mornings and evenings are much cooler than they were mid-summer and obviously it gets darker much earlier. But as you can see, during the day it is still warm and might even be mistaken for a summer’s day. Piers were a Victorian fad, with seasideContinue reading “Worthing Pier, West Sussex”

Yachts, Shoreham Beach

After 6 months of staying at home, I have started exploring further afield. In this case, about 20 miles away – so not that far! I used to live in Shoreham-by-Sea 40 years ago and whenever I go back I am reminded of what it was like as a child. The church at the endContinue reading “Yachts, Shoreham Beach”

Shoreham Beach, West Sussex

In a change to my usual routine, this morning I drove to the beach, which is about half an hour from where I live. It was still quite cool, but the Sun was very bright, making it hard to take photos. As you can see, some people were in the water although it looked quiteContinue reading “Shoreham Beach, West Sussex”

Lightning, Batu Ferringhi

I used to live here, with a view of the sea. In good weather, the sea had a green/blue tinge to it. When there was a storm, it was dark green. I lived near the top of a high block of flats with a front row view whenever a storm came in. In Malaysia, theyContinue reading “Lightning, Batu Ferringhi”

Inka, Somerset

They say, “Don’t work with animals or children”. But as you can see, some animals make good subjects. I like that he has given me good eye contact – I think I did something to get his attention (shameless preformer that I am). People make all sorts of claims for their portraits, but I thinkContinue reading “Inka, Somerset”

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”

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”

Two Trees, West Sussex

I think I have missed my morning walk once during lockdown. Yesterday, it was quite cool and misty early on – but by the time I went out for my walk, the Sun was up and throwing long, dark shadows. And there is a contrast with the morning mist, which is slowly being burned off.

Double Rainbow, West Sussex

People tend to think of landscape photography as a fairly leisurely persuit, but in my experience it is anything but. I took these two pictures within a few minutes of each other – and then the light went! If you are curious, I took these on my phone, which I bring on my daily walk.Continue reading “Double Rainbow, West Sussex”
