Morning Sun, West Sussex

Morning Sun, West Sussex August 2020

How has your life changed in the last few months?

One of the things I like about life now, are my early morning walks on the parkland near where I live. When I was working, my morning was dominated by my need to get to work – which was always some way away from where I lived. And I’m sure lots of people who lived miles away would have rushing to get to work near where I lived.

Anyway, a pleasure of the last 6 months has been the change from spring into summer. It has got light earlier and earlier and, obviously, warmer too.

A challenge of this photo is the change from the original to this form – for some reason, the shadows looked “richer” if that makes sense. I still like the effect of the light on the grass and the gravel.

Lavender Seedling, West Sussex August 2020

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 that lavender would be easy to grow, but I’m finding them to be very slow! Lots of learning when you try something new!

Like most of my photos these days, I’m using my phone, I find if I turn it upsidedown, I can get quite close and gives a pleasing almost worm’s eye view of things.
