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”

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”

Shadow, 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”

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”

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. Firstly, they are quite small, so you need a close-up lens to be able toContinue reading “Bumblebee, 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”

Daisies, West Sussex

I found these dasies quite close to where I live, peeking out of the hedge. They remind me of childhood drawings of flowers, with pure whites and warm sun-yellows, which contrast nicely with the deep green of the hedge. I love looking at the details on the foreground daisy!

Tree at Sunset, West Sussex

Whether through design or cirumstance, seem to be photographing sunsets lately. In the UK, we have had sunshine for most of the lockdown period, which has made for some golden sunsets (see above). I’m wondering if the air is a little clearer because there are fewer cars on the roads – in the evening, thereContinue reading “Tree at Sunset, West Sussex”
