Get out there!

Even on the bleakest of days there’s something to shoot.
Here’s a black & white Coronation Plantation in Richmond Park snapped on the mobile, and graded in Adobe Camera RAW.

Talon Oak – Richmond Park

On our many walks amongst the trees we often stumble across a tree that is slowly returning to the soil. Most of these appear bedraggled and beaten. This tree has been pollarded by the rangers, I suspect for safety reasons.
When viewed from the trail it reminded me of a falcon’s talon, not sad and beaten, but strong, with presence and with purpose.

Verdancy

Definition: verdancy
the quality or condition of being green, as the condition of being covered with green plants or grass or inexperience attributable to youth. — verdant, adj.

Subtle colours of an English sky

I’ve always though that, as a nation, we miss the essential beauty that is rendered by our overcast skies.
Jo and I were walking and shooting in Richmond Park this evening and, as is not unusual, the sky was overcast. The sun was setting, giving a muted colour palette as it stretched across the sky.

UK Lockdown v2.0 – The Final Walk 8.11.20

UK Lockdown v2.0 – The Final Walk 8.11.20

Just before the second Lockdown here in the UK,Jo and I went on a walk around Richmond Park. We realised how difficult it had been for some people to take exercise in beautiful places and that we were so lucky to live near the Richmond Park.

So, we set off snapping as we went, with the intention of posting a lovely image every day. This Article is the sum total of all of those individual daily articles.

“Let’s get it straight!”

“Let’s get it straight!”

Back in the day I had the privilege to work with some great photographers. Also, I spent quite a few years working for British Rail, initially as an assistant to Paul K Childs, and after a year or two, as an architectural photographer, recording listed buildings for the architects’ department in Croydon. It was a real joy to see these railway structures around the United Kingdom. More about that another day…

After the storm

After the storm

We chose to walk along the Thames path to Teddington Lock to discover that the river was very much in flood after the storm. It was a glorious winter’s day, and the image below gives no indication of the flow under the surface.

Making the most of Autumn

Making the most of Autumn

Here’s a video I shot today during our Sunday constitutional. The wood is opposite “Two Storm” wood on top of Saywer’s Hill in Richmond Park. Jo and I decided not to take cameras as the weather was slate grey when we left the house, so this was shot, hand held, on a mobile phone.
