Yachts, Shoreham Beach

After 6 months of staying at home, I have started exploring further afield. In this case, about 20 miles away – so not that far! I used to live in Shoreham-by-Sea 40 years ago and whenever I go back I am reminded of what it was like as a child. The church at the endContinue reading “Yachts, Shoreham Beach”

Bullocks in the Morning, West Sussex

This field, is next to the parkland where I walk every morning. As you can see, it is used as pasture land. It is tempting to think of landscapes as unchanging, but there is quite a rapid turnover in livestock and I am sure that if I see them again next week, there will beContinue reading “Bullocks 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.

Leaves, West Sussex

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 onContinue reading “Leaves, West Sussex”

Two Trees, 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.

Another Tree in the Park

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”

On the Beach, Newquay

I photograph on the beach – a lot. Judging by the number of people trying to shift “water-damaged” cameras on eBay, I’m not alone. Beaches are always changing. If you want to photograph wildlife, go early in the morning. If you go in the late afternoon, you will probably see a different kind of “wildlife’.Continue reading “On the Beach, Newquay”

Dawn – Cedar Key, FL

I can’t believe I took this almost 20 years ago! The night before, I had driven down from Atlanta. The last few miles had been quite slow because deer kept jumping from the side of the road (might have made interesting pictures) in what was quite a rural area. Finally we pulled up at theContinue reading “Dawn – Cedar Key, FL”

In the Morning, Batheaston

A well-known photographic adage is “the best camera, is the one you have with you”. On this occasion, as I walked to Bath on a fairly chilly Autumn morning, I only had my iphone with me – so it is what I used to take this picture. When I look at photos, I’m looking forContinue reading “In the Morning, Batheaston”
