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”

Bumblebee, West Sussex

Today, I have been trying to photograph bees, which I thought would be an easy subject – but isn’t. Although they don’t require lengthy travel to locate, or require model releases, there are a number of challenges to be overcome.

Leaf in the Park, Horsham

Another one of those “as I was wandering past” photographs. October in West Sussex was particularly mild this year, with a number of glorious sunny days. Horsham Park is pleasant green space near to the station where I often wait before catching a train. I think there are two types of  photographers: those who photographContinue reading “Leaf in the Park, Horsham”
