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.
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”
Another sunset photo. I really like trees and the interesting shadows which they cast. In this case it is from the the sunset. Part of me want to crop this to square with the tree in the middle – but I haven’t. I wonder what the soundtrack might be.? As you can see, this anotherContinue reading “Shadow, 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”
Because of restrictions, I find myself walking in the same places most of the time. Everytime I pass these two trees, they feel like a contrasting pair. Although it is early summer, as you can see with the dew on the grass, early in the morning, it is still cool.
I’m trying to remember which philosopher it was who talked about the power of being able to see the world a-new. Right now, we are all quite restricted where we can go and I find myself trying to find a new view of familar places. This morning I was rewarded with a blue sky toContinue reading “Red Leaves and Blue Sky”
This is another early morning picture, seemingly they only kind I take these days. Like many people, with the lockdown, lots of the things I do has changed. Prior to the last couple of posts, nearly all my photos came from dedicated cameras, mostly of places I have visited rather than near where I live.Continue reading “Another Tree in the Park”
I saw this when I went for a walk a couple of days ago. It was about 6.30am. Sometimes I like to listen to something when I’m walking and sometimes I prefer silence. My favourite sound is the birds singing before sunrise (remember back to walking home after a night out).
In the UK, we are in lockdown, which means we are all spending a lot more time at home. This picture is from my morning exercise walk through some park land near where I live. The whole situation at the moment is pretty difficult, but the weather has been beautiful.
This is another photo from my trip to Yunnan in 2015. Yes, I have this as my banner, but thought I would write about it. The path the photo was taken from led to a large lake. In the foreground, you can see paddies which were in cultivation. In the background, you can the mountainsContinue reading “Mountains in Yunnan”
