Trees in Moonlight, West Sussex

My first post of the second lockdown! I’m back to walking in the park either early in the morning, or late at night, when sensible people are snug in bed. I missed the full moon (which was smothered by thick cloud anyway), but I’m still pleased with the amount you can see. In reality, itContinue reading “Trees in Moonlight, West Sussex”

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.

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”

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”

Red Leaves and Blue Sky

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 toContinue reading “Red Leaves and Blue Sky”

Tree, Vietnam

I didn’t visit the Reunification Palace while I lived in Ho Chi Minh City, only seeing it when I returned to the country on a flying visit. The building has a rather theatrical quality, which makes me think of a film set. The gardens, but contrast, are cool, dark and rather inviting, with lots ofContinue reading “Tree, Vietnam”

Tree, St. James’s Park

St James’s Park, is probably my favourite in London. In the Summer it gets very crowded, but first thing in the morning as the sun comes up, it really is lovely. This picture isn’t first thing in the morning, but I do like the contrast between the soft pink of the blossoms and the deepContinue reading “Tree, St. James’s Park”

Another Leaf in a Park, Singapore 2009

I love here how the picture goes from blurry to sharp, from left to right in the frame. And where it is sharp, you can see the structure of the leaf. I used my new camera of the time, a Canon Powershot G9 to take this. The reason it is worthy of mentioning, is becauseContinue reading “Another Leaf in a Park, Singapore 2009”
