Golden Light

My daughter and I went out for a walk in the woods by the river this afternoon. We’re both tired out now, but it was a lovely walk. The sun was low and the leaves were golden. The light and the leaves together were beautiful. I’m not sure my photos entirely capture the feeling, butContinue reading “Golden Light”

Transformed by Light

A change in the light can transform the world. Simple windows wouldn’t be so interesting without the glow of the sunset reflected in them. A distant Red Kite wouldn’t make much of a photo but silhouetted against a golden sky, maybe the photo is worth saving. The glow of sunshine in the forest highlights everyContinue reading “Transformed by Light”

We’ve put our tree up early this year to cheer us up in the dark nights, and fend of the darkness of depressing/frustrating news stories. Light and bright, bringing hope, and reminding us to holdContinue reading “Christmas Magic”

Among Nature’s Chaos

I remember that joyful feeling of walking along and seeing tiny creatures springing about, then getting down close to the ground and seeing so many tiny hoppers peeking out at me from various stems. More recently I’ve enjoyed photographing the chaosContinue reading “Among Nature’s Chaos”

Autumn in the Village

Most of what I include in my blog would fit the Weekly Photo Challenge this week: Local. I don’t often venture very far, mainly taking photos around my village, and occasionally a few miles away in Cors Caron. So it’s all very much local. What is going in on my local area at the momentContinue reading “Autumn in the Village”
