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, there is very little traffic these days – bicycles seem to be the most popular form of transport.
I don’t know when lockdown will end – could be June- but I have the feeling it may be a while, I am looking forward to pictures of people, but I think I will miss quiet walks and clear skies.
Like most people, my outdoor photography has been restricted by the lock-down. Which is why I have been posting pictures of things I’ve seen on my exercise walks. I could post things from the past – places I’ve been – but it feels irrelvant at the moment.
This is a picture of some leaves on a sycamore tree. Initially I thought it was a maple (because of the shape), but if you look closely, you can see some seeds – which is the giveaway.
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 to contrast with the red leaves. If I am being a techie, I notice that the scene shows additive primary colours (RGB).
What have you been intersted in during the lockdown?
Where I live (quite rural but near a large town), I see lots of families walking and riding bicycles in the sunshine.
