Trees in Fog, West Sussex

Trees in Fog, Horsham, West Sussex November 2020

I think I have walked around the park every day since the first lockdown. Normally, in the noise of work and rush, the seasons tend to pass outside the window, but because we have all been at home I have been able to notice the changes in the weather as the seasons pass.

As you can see, we have had a patch of foggy weather, which makes me think we are transitioning into winter. I’m trying to think of a good poem to quote which would describe the feeling of walking through a foggy landscape. Any ideas?

Anyway, to come back to the original thought – it is gently pleasing to see the seasons pass – notice the days get longer and then get shorter again. I used to hate getting up to go to work in the dark and then returning home in darkness. But it did mean that I got to see sunrise, which always feels special, particularly in spring, when the light seems golden on the morning frost.

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, I get up early to avoid people during my walk. I can’t believe how much I do to try to avoid other people.When this pandemic has passed, I wonder how quickly we will settle into being around eachother again?
