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”

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”

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”

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”

Bee, West Sussex

Another go at bee photography. I think this is another species of bee to my previous photographs, note the bright yellow pollen baskets on its rear legs! I don’t know how your lockdown is going, but I seem to spend far more time in the garden now, than I ever have in the past. AndContinue reading “Bee, West Sussex”

Full Moon, West Sussex

I’ve photographed these trees a few times. Usually during the day. On this occasion, there was a full moon and a clear sky. During the lockdown I’ve been using my phone for most of my pictures and by and large I am happy with the results. I don’t chimp much, so I only usually knowContinue reading “Full Moon, West Sussex”
