Sunrise over Cooks Shipyard, 21 – 01 – 21.

The air is crisp, the wind is cold and the sunlight has that midwinter sharpness – everything comes into focus. The joys of an early morning winter walk.

A Frozen Web

A thawing cobweb as the temperature edges close to zero.

Out at daybreak on Tuesday to photograph cobwebs in the freezing mist, I literally bumped into a professional photographer doing the same. He gave me his card and we both turned to go in opposite directions, disappearing into the fog to go our separate ways along the river. It was a great way to start the day before my final lectures of the year.

Soft Focus

Taken on my sunset walk along the River Colne tonight, in the freezing fog, looking across to Rowhedge and their Christmas decorations. Every season, and each change of the weather, has its own beauty. The fog muffles sound and alters light, bringing quiet and calm, slowing life down.
