#ABFAV_FAVOURITE_REFLECTIONS_THEME URBAN REFRACTIONS… And reflections in Liverpool. Waiting at the traffic lights... the corner building had a rounded mirror-glass facade, I loved what I saw, grabbed my camera... the lights changed to green... onto the next...

A GENTLE AUTUMN...

#abfav_favourite_doors_and_windows_theme Scarborough, on the North-Yorkshire Heritage coast has a bit of a strange lay-out, pleasant? VERY! It has a North bay, more for the locals, surfers and on the top all the hotels with a fabulous view in front of them. Then there is the point sticking out into the sea, dividing this from the South bay, where all the fun is, the Fair, the harbours, both yachting and fishing, the arcades , Fish&Chips shops, ice-cream parlours, the donkeys... Now ON that point you have the old (ruin) castle, and a small church with very old graves, lovingly maintained, that's where we ventured that day! Behind all of that, the shops and businesses. A lovely, mellow Autumn Sunday-afternoon... Hope you have a great w-e. With love to you and thank you for ALL your faves and comments, M, (* _ *) For more of my other work visit here: www.indigo2photography.com IT IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN (BY LAW!!!)

THE EUPHONIUMS...

#ABFAV_FAVOURITE_STREET_ACTIVITY_THEME It is a well-known fact that England is a land of traditions and proudly so! Due to the faster pace and changes in the current times, many are finding it harder to keep going. Society is changing more rapidly than ever. The famous Brass Bands are finding it hard to find young musicians… So it was extremely pleasant, last summer, to discover that in the many parks, in and around the city where we live, every Sunday afternoon, brass bands were to give concerts! ...but it was rather melancholic to hear that oooh so specific sound and the old sweet tunes floating through the leaves as the rains started, people sought refuge inside the small caf, while quite a few listeners brought out their raincoats and umbrellas, and stoically stayed put, like the band, who kept on playing! This was the Euphoniums' section, the image fits in with my latest blog about the importance of hands in portrait photography.

UM-PAPA...

#abfav_favourite_street_activity_theme Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm. - Ralph Waldo Emerson American writer (1803-1882) It is a well-known fact that England is a land of traditions and proudly so! Due to the faster pace and changes in the current times, many are finding it harder to keep going. Society is changing more rapidly than ever. So it was extremely pleasant, that summer, to discover that in the many parks, in and around the area where we live, every Sunday afternoon, brass bands were to give concerts! ...but it was rather melancholic to hear that, oooh, so specific sound and the old sweet tunes floating through the leaves as the rains started.

OF HUNKS AND LITTLE DOGS...

#abfav_favourite_street_activity_theme I see it so often... no matter which village, town, country I visit! Big men... left outside the shops, to wait for the ladies. I do wonder, are they the women's dogs (choice?), if so, ladies... how naughty!!! Or is it the men's choice to make them look even hunkier???????

SO VERY BRITISH...

#abfav_favourite_street_activity_theme More fun for today? Flamborough, the parking next to Smuggler's Cove. I had just had my usual chat with my good friend, fisherman Robert, I had bought one of his tasty, fresh crabs off him, for later. I saw those two going up, in, let's say, dress code of another era, as they walked on, I saw the reason why, the strangest car I ever saw, half rocket/ half... Sometimes there are things that, if you hadn't photographed them, you'd swear you'd dreamt them...

I'M SEXY AND I KNOW IT...

#ABFAV_FAVOURITE_STREET_ACTIVITY_THEME AAAHHHH THE FUN I have! Many people are 'dressed' the part!!! I could not resist taking a quick shot of this scene, one gent waiting for his pals... his boots had seen ACTION and the red socks were sexy and he knew it!!!!!!! Taken in beautiful Grassington. For those interested: Limestone hills and dry-stone walls in the west of the Yorkshire Dales. This part of the national park is popular with walkers due to the presence of the Yorkshire three peaks. In 1954 an area of 1,770 square kilometres (680 sq mi) was designated the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Most of the National Park is in North Yorkshire, though part lies within Cumbria. However, the whole park lies within the historic boundaries of Yorkshire, divided between the North Riding and the West Riding. The park is 50 miles (80 km) north east of Manchester; Leeds and Bradford lie to the south, while Kendal is to the west and Darlington to the east. The area has a large collection of activities for visitors. For example, many people come to the Dales for walking. The National Park is crossed by several long-distance routes including the Pennine Way, the Dales Way, the Coast to Coast Path and the latest national trail of the Pennine Bridleway. THANX for ALL your comments and visits, so appreciated.

FRESH PAINT?

#ABFAV_FAVOURITE_SPRING_THEME SCARBOROUGH BEACH HUTS… In seaside resorts and many other tourist places a fresh lick of paint is a must… They are so cheerful and attractive, here in more detail.

DUBLIN ART...

#abfav_favourite_street_activity_theme Street photography is not only, doggies and sweetness eh? That is where we are often faced with the HARD REALITY... Beer and Can culture ? Nowadays, sadly, wherever you'll come across the junk and litter people have discarded negligently, EVERYWHERE! Are we the only animals who soil their nest? Well, I was raised differently and it angers me, yet realising their is little that I could do about it and that the emotion was detrimental to my wellbeing, I started to use it in a 'creative' way, a different approach...

All ON THE GO…

#ABFAV_FAVOURITE_SPRING_THEME KINGS CROSS STATION LONDON... Springs mean travel/holiday for many, not only the birds that trek South, lol. Sitting on a low wall, waiting on Sunday noon, King’s Cross Station in London, it was stifling hot. Instead of being bored and impatient, I decided to pass the time being 'creative'... I noticed all the people hurrying by and also, especially, that EVERYBODY was lugging bags, lots of bags, of all types, colours and designs. Spotted, striped, floral,classic, coloured. I wondered, what were they all transporting? Can we not go anywhere without our ‘wheeled’ carriers? Often not one but more, backpacks, plastic, leather, designed, handbags, so many. All different, just like the people, their shoes, legs and leg wear! I saw people traveling alone, in pairs, in group, I saw them smile, I saw them laugh, I saw some cry, I saw some depressed and some tired, people of all walks of life. I saw hellos and I saw good-byes... all the emotions ... I became smilingly fascinated and eventually left feeling a great sense of joy because of this series. I feel so biased, I like them ALL, LOL, thanx, M, (*_*) For more of my other work or if you want to purchase, visit here: www.indigo2photography.com IT IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN (BY LAW!!!)

A LONDON STREET ARTIST…

#ABFAV_FAVOURITE_STREET_ACTIVITY_THEME They were a couple, wearing the same colour-costumes, they had a different discipline but were both so very graceful, elegant and talented. It was pure magic to see them at work. I burned out the public in the bg, it looks like his crystal balls were 'giving' off the light...

#abfav_favourite_doors_and_windows_theme When we're out together, Paul does most of the driving.

WINDOWS-2017… LEEDS

#ABFAV_FAVOURITE_PLACES_THEME This is the Market in Leeds, Yorkshire, beautiful inside and out. Victorian buildings, small shops on the outside, facing the streets, market stalls on the inside. I love photographing silhouette, but when I saw the sky reflected in those windows, aahh well, that really 'made' it for me. I first visited Leeds when I was 11, been coming here ever since. One of the main cities in the biggest county in England: Yorkshire.

EPIC BEAUTY in WALES…

AB FAV for today… https://www.facebook.com/groups/1148438991917313/ North Wales, the West Coast, Irish-Sea-side of England. On the top of the Great Orme (Welsh: Y Gogarth or Pen y Gogarth) is a prominent limestone headland on the north coast of Wales situated in Llandudno. It has fantastic views! This is towards Conwy Bay and Anglesey, and behind it Snowdonia. I love standing, staring till my eyes stream, viewing these vast expanses. Such an epic scene, makes you feel reinvigorated and filled with the joy of untainted beauty. Hope you have a day full of love and thanx for visiting and commenting, Magda, (*_*) For more of my other work or if you want to PURCHASE (ONLY PLACE TO BUY!), visit here: www.indigo2photography.com IT IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN (BY LAW!!!)

AAAHHH, TO STAND AND STARE… in WALES

AB FAV for today… https://www.facebook.com/groups/1148438991917313/ "LEISURE" What is this life if, full of care, We have no time to stand and stare. No time to stand beneath the boughs And stare as long as sheep or cows. No time to see, when woods we pass, Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass. No time to see, in broad daylight, Streams full of stars, like skies at night. No time to turn at Beauty's glance, And watch her feet, how they can dance. No time to wait till her mouth can Enrich that smile her eyes began. A poor life this is, if full of care, We have no time to stand and stare. By Wm. Henry Davies The sun and the fat clouds were playing hide and seek, displaying a delightful show of light and dark. Ahh, to stand and stare... This beautiful place is in North Wales. This is up the Great Orme (Y Gogarth), a high peninsula and a spectacular limestone headland which rises above Llandudno on the coast of North Wales to a height of 200m (679ft). Behind her are the hills from the National park, they grow into higher mounts, the peak is Mount Snowdon, 1085m, the highest mountain in England and Wales. This is the view from 'almost' at the top, looking down and facing South, on the left is Conwy Bay, on the (straight} horizon Anglesey. There is a timeless and carefree feel to this place, your lungs are so full of fresh air it fills your head too, leaving no room for life's woe. If you want to get high and forget all your troubles, put things back into perspective, go to the top of the Great Orme, stand there, tears streaming down your cheeks. Wind? Joy? Emotion? The wind? Probably all of it. Who cares, it just made it more difficult to look through the viewer, ha. Taken with my Nikon F4, on 400 Iso film, hence the 'grain', which I often favoured.

MIRROR SEA in WALES…

The sun shone so very bright on the water that all detail waas lost, it was like a mirror, blinding to the eyes. It gives for stranger colours and light-play. This is up the Great Orme (Y Gogarth), a high peninsula and a spectacular limestone headland which rises above Llandudno on the coast of North Wales to a height of 200m (679ft). Behind her are the hills from the National park, they grow into higher mounts, the peak is Mount Snowdon, 1085m, the highest mountain in England and Wales.

SUN SETS OVER ANGLESEY...

#ABFAV_FAVOURITE_SKIES_THEME I photographed this from he Great Orme (Welsh: Y Gogarth or Pen y Gogarth) is a prominent limestone headland on the north coast of Wales situated in Llandudno. It was a beautiful brisk evening on the Great Orme (Y Gogarth), a high peninsula I'll show you more of later, on top of which the oldest copper mines in the world can still be seen. It is referred to as Cyngreawdr Fynydd in a poem by the 12th century poet Gwalchmai ap Meilyr. THANX for ALL your comments and visits, so appreciated,.

FULL MOON...

#ABFAV_FAVOURITE_SKIES_THEME It was the day after the Super Moon. The moon was in and out, playing with the clouds. Waiting for the midnight ferry in Dover, to take us across the Channel to the Continent/France. One hour late because of delays caused by the storm the previous day and night. The North-Sea, Channel can be treacherous. We just had a 6 hour drive South behind us, with rain and wind and road-works! I was looking forward to seeing family and friends. So, excited and thrilled, I grabbed my camera and waited for the moon to reappear. Bang... gotcha.

EVENING SETS OVER RUNSWICK BAY...

#ABFAV_FAVOURITE_PLACES_THEME The South side of the bay, towards Kettleness. Runswick Bay has been inhabited since before Roman times, as burial mounds found on the moors behind the village suggest. This delightful hideaway, with its steep(VERY STEEP!!!) track down into the bay, its sheltered anchorage offering an ideal spot for fishermen, whalers and smugglers. This secluded village, which is hidden from the main road, has only a handful of permanent residents therefore providing a quieter than average retreat. We stay there awhile, till the light goes and wow are we being treated!!

LITTLE THORNWICK BAY…

#ABFAV_FAVOURITE_PLACES_THEME At high tide. Thornwick Bay is located on the Yorkshire Coastline on the north of Flamborough Head near Bridlington. A headland and magnificent cliffs with two bays of shingle, pebbles and flint. The large bay is Thornwick Bay and the small one, Little Thornwick Bay. This beautiful cliff top park sits on part of Flamborough Cliffs nature reserve and is home to seabird colonies nesting on its chalk cliffs, so it’s ideal for enjoying uninterrupted sea views or spotting wildlife. A great place all year round to recharge your batteries. This was in Summer, and the last of the sun that day… All had gone quiet except for some shrieking of the gulls.

A SUMMER'S EVE …THORNWICK Bay

(pronounced Thornick... welcome to Yorkshire, lol) Thornwick Bay derives it's name from "Thor" the God of Thunder because of the roar of the breaking waves on the rocks during a North Easterly gale which pounds the magnificent cliffs. In the winter when the winds are strong and the weather is bad, when the waves hit the rocks, foam and spray blows up the cliff and over the cafe, but thankfully most people come to visit in the Spring, Summer and Autumn months when the weather is much calmer, and people can sit on the cliff top and admire the fantastic scenery and watch the sun reflect off the brilliant white chalk cliffs which have been cleaned by the winter storms over thousands of years. The stretch of water North of the Lighthouse was named the graveyard by the skippers and crew of sailing vessels which once they had lost the safety of Bridlington Bay, and without the aids of navigation and weather forecasting which we now take for granted, were at the mercy of the angry weather, Marine charts show hundreds of wrecks all within a few miles radius of Thornwick bay. Much more information can be found in the book "Shipwrecks off the Yorkshire Coast". A great many people visit Thornwick Bay each year to enjoy wonderful cliff top walks observing the abundance of seabirds including Puffins, Guillemots and Kittiwakes etc. Flamborough Head is an official bird observatory. Scuba diving continues to be extremely popular with many organisations and clubs. Always you have the 'risk-takers' who will venture and walk the very narrow and crumbly ridge to get to the furthest point. Do you spot this one?

SMUGGLER'S COVE...

February, still the beauty that surrounds us in everything for those willing to see. I decided to upload a series of landscapes, gathered over the years. Mostly in the UK. Most of them have never seen the light of day, because my flower photography has overtaken my world somewhat. And much as I love it, my ‘other’ photography is as important to me. So, here goes. FLAMBOROUGH, probably our favourite 'haunt', the weather and colours typical 'North-Sea'... We both grew up on the Coast (different Continents!!!), with the sea, its pleasures and its dangers. This wonderful place is on the North-Yorkshire Heritage coast. You have Flamborough Head with the lighthouse, The North Landing = Smuggler's Cove, you can see where it gets its name, when the tide is out, you can get into the caves, and then, The South Landing where the Life guards have their house and boat. All within a mile from each other, three different places entirely, in the center you'll find a small village. In time you'll get to know its beauty, through the seasons ALWAYS special, its people, birds and superb views, changing with the weather, influencing the -all so important- light! The cliffs are limestone...

WAVE PLAY in FLAMBOROUGH…

#ABFAV_WATER_THEME Taken at Flamborough, this is up North, Yorkshire, the North-Sea, but no matter, a wave is a wave is a wave, where ever... Always different and never-ending, they keep on rolling in. I love them and can sit staring at them for hours. Love the smell, the sound, the spectacle. The wind was playing with the water, the sun was playing with the colours, the gulls were playing with wind and water in the sunlight. Hope you have a lovely day and thank you for your comments, Magda, (*_*) Thanx for all your words, time, comments and faves. Very much appreciated.

WILD WATERS of CORNWALL…

AB FAV for today… https://www.facebook.com/groups/1148438991917313/ The Northern Coast of Cornwall, St Ives Bay, away from the town, the churning waters of the ocean beating the rocks again and again. A sea fast and furious. It looks beautiful and scary at the same time, you feel, hear and see the force of the water. Mesmerising, another where I stand and stare in fascination . Hope you have a day full of love and thanx for visiting and commenting, Magda, (*_*) For more of my other work or if you want to PURCHASE (ONLY PLACE TO BUY!), visit here: www.indigo2photography.com IT IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN (BY LAW!!!)

COLOURS OF AYSGARTH FALLS…

#ABFAV_WATER_THEME These Falls are in the North Yorkshire national park 'The Yorkshire Dales'. Aysgarth is best known for its breathtaking triple flight of waterfalls, carved out by the River Ure on its descent to mid-Wensleydale. They are very popular and spectacular, can also be very dangerous when it's been raining a lot and the water comes gushing down the surrounding mountains and hills. They have been photographed to death, so I wanted something different... I was extremely attracted and fascinated by the colours, the indigo and amber, the chaud/froid and also the force of the water.

Sand Water Art...

#ABFAV_WATER_THEME On a beach in Cornwall. I see things forever, my imagination in overdrive... I could happily spend a whole afternoon, gazing at the patterns, made by the wind, drawing the water over the sand in ever-changing fantasies, hope you enjoy them too. I moved on to where the delta had formed, the water flowing in different directions, making more and more patterns, I saw the blue reflection of the sky and all the lovely tones that got created in both sand and water, all I had to be careful of now the whole time was not to have my own shadow in the picture, so I was turning around a lot, also to get the right angle, you know I love to make my comp in camera.

WHEAL COATES TIN MINE… CORNWALL

#ABFAV_FAVOURITE_PLACES_THEME We drove the 8 hours through the night all the way to this beautiful part of Britain, Cornwall. On the North Coast you have the Atlantic which is rough and stunning, full of history, coves and caves, piracy, smuggling, adventure and mystery… The weather was warm, well this is the ‘English Riviera’, a bit hazy, the birds were out and the land dotted with all kinds of colours due to all the blossoms and flowers, more summer than here up North where we live. Without sleep, we explored the area immediately, the adrenaline and excitement kept us awake and alert! This view was a glorious reward. St Agnes has an extremely rich mining history due to the high quality tin found in the area. The mining trail begins at the famous Wheal Coates tin mine on the cliffs near Chapel Porth and that mine goes all the way down to the sea and at high tide you can hear the waves crashing against the rocks through a grate on the floor of the ruin. This mine shaft is accessible through a large cave at the far end of Chapel Porth beach at low tide. Legend has it that Wheal Coates is haunted by the ghosts of the miners that have tragically lost their lives whilst working in its depths... Most of the mining activity was along the coast.

EASTER BUNNIES…

#ABFAV_FAVOURITE_SPRING_THEME Aah, at last, Spring and that first time your feet touch the still very cold water, what a thrill! I can feel this in his image. Chapel-Porth in Cornwall, Easter Monday. One of the many small Coves, a blazing sun, a healing wind, bouldering waves, the screech of gulls, the squeals of delight from children, the peace and joy in my soul...

Le Petit Pêcheur et son chien…

#ABFAV_FAVOURITE_REFLECTIONS_THEME Staithes, North-Yorkshire Heritage Coast... we had combed the beaches, the quay-sides, boats, we'd met new people and chatted, yes taken loads of images. The tide was coming in fast, the sun was getting lower... we rested out in the shade on a bench, before going for a meal, taking it all in, when this little chap in a bright yellow T-shirt, green net over his shoulder, accompanied by his faithful friend appeared in front of us... Another treasured moment!

THE POOL in FILEY…

#ABFAV_WATER_THEME I always am very aware of the goings-on around me. We had parked the car, when I spotted this surreal image, a boy in the middle of a ‘swimming-pool’, on the edge of the majestic escape you get in Filey. This was on our way back from Flamborough. Filey, a calm North-Sea under one of the beautiful skies of North-Yorkshire, the Heritage Coast... Filey is a small town and civil parish. Historically part of the East Riding of Yorkshire, it is part of the borough of Scarborough between Scarborough and Bridlington on the North Sea coast. Although it was a fishing village, it has a large beach and became a popular tourist resort. It has an oldy-worldy feel. I wish you all a very good day and thanx for all your kind words, time, comments and likes. Very much appreciated.

READY and WAITING FOR SUMMER...

#abfav_favourite_spring_theme ... taken on the beach of the South-Bay in Scarborough. We only arrived later in the afternoon, because we prefer the evening light and there are already less people. I had seen this image from the car, quickly found a parking space and walked back along the promenade, there was a hazy sunshine and a lovely soft breeze, which made it perfect. Three fresh deck-chairs, ready for Summer...

REFLECTIONS of THE GRAND in SCARBOROUGH

The Grand Hotel in Scarborough is an astonishing building overlooking the harbour and South Bay. I photographed it with these beautiful reflections on the beach, just after the place is undergoing a 7 million pound refurbishment. Originally constructed in 1863, it was one of Europe's first purpose-built hotels, with a design based on time; 4 towers - the 4 seasons, 12 floors - the months, 52 chimneys for the weeks and 365 bedrooms for the days of the year! It is a beautiful example of grand Victorian architecture and totally dominates its surroundings. I decided to upload a series of landscapes, gathered over the years. Mostly in the UK. Most of them have never seen the light of day, because my flower photography has overtaken my world somewhat. And much as I love it, my ‘other’ photography is as important to me.

FILEY BAY WATERS…

Sometimes you encounter this weather phenomenon, that the sky goes dark and the whites so blindingly stark. super contract, beautiful Filey is a wholly unique, quiet and quite beautiful, small seaside town on the picturesque North Yorkshire coast. Between Bridlington and Scarborough, it is often - and to its benefit - overlooked. February, still the beauty that surrounds us in everything for those willing to see.

ON SADDLEWORTH MOOR…

#ABFAV_FAVOURITE_PLACES_THEME Pennine Way. Saddleworth, on the northern English Pennine hill-range, in the area of Oldham near Manchester and Huddersfield/ Halifax in Yorkshire. Once you are in that area no matter where you walk or drive, it's just one awesome view after another. The higher parts of the moors are largely cloaked in one of the best areas of heather moorland to be found in England if not the UK. Dowry Reservoir, on Saddleworth Moor. We drove though this majestic, barren landscape one Sunday, the clouds were again racing in the blue sky, which always make the landscape even more interesting because of the fast changing light play on the flanks, bringing out the shapes of the hills and the bold folds created over the centuries. It was a good harvest; we came home fulfilled, windblown and glowing.

ONCE EVERY YEAR… BLOSSOMS

#ABFAV_FAVOURITE_SPRING_THEME SPLENDOUR ON THE GREEN. Last year on a Saturday evening we drove to Harrogate, a pleasant spa town to the south-east of the Yorkshire Dales, famous for its tea shops (like Betty’s), flower shows, Turkish baths, antique shops and gardens. A very 'oldy worldy' place with a particular atmosphere. Once a year in this huge green, the rows of trees lining the paths explode in splendour, the cherry trees. They criss-cross the lovely grassy field. The first time we came across them... we were too late. The next year... some trees had been chopped because of disease, leaving huge gaps... The next year we forgot... The next year it was a dreadful Spring with late frost, the blossoms hardly came out, a merciless storm threw them to the ground... The next year we kept hearing on the news that although the money had been raised and the young trees planted to restore this visual feast, some vandals came and cracked the saplings... Last year we forgot again… This year, WE MADE IT!!! The sky had been a milky soft box the whole day, but I sensed a glimmer of 'more', as everyone went home, the 'sun' came out gently for a while. It was wonderful, the tender full blossoms ever so gently swaying in the warm evening light, walking in wonderland, so beautiful… so fleeting. The next day it was windy, across from our house; the neighbours have a Cherry tree… most of the petals now a pink carpet on the ground… grab it while it's there! Just a few of the images I came home with, a flavour of the opulence with which I was surrounded, what a feast for all the senses.

A BRIEF MOMENT IN TIME…

The sky had been a milky soft-box the whole day, but I sensed a glimmer of 'more', as everyone went home, the 'sun' came out gently for a while.

#abfav_favourite_spring_theme we had a week of cold and sometimes stormy days… Poor blossoms, hanging on for dear life… put for some their time was over and at their feet…. a pink carpet was being woven.

THE CHERRY TREE…

#ABFAV_FAVOURITE_PLACES_THEME It was a glorious day, the sun was out with some clouds in the sky. That is always good as it means that on the hills of the Yorkshire Dales and Moors you will have those moving light-patches, plus that it won't be hazy, so when you're higher up you'll see the hills roll on and on. We drove up to Malham, a very interesting place... This was on our way back, we had driven, walked and photographed for hours in a barren and arid landscape, on the Moors, the sun had already dropped behind the higher ridges, this was Upper Wharfedale, I was on the right side, driving home, the river Wharfe below and then the bank on the left going up again, when I spotted this, first it was the luscious green waves that caught my eye, then, I saw the cherry tree. I needed the tripod, AND the 300mm, so there's a lot of a wonderful compression, all in all a great moment for me, an image I'd been after for a long time.

MAY GREEN... A WALK IN THE PARK

THE BEST!!! Well I think May is the sweetest month, everything so fresh, and the foliage not yet dense, so it lets through the gorgeous light!

LONELY @ THE TOP…

February, still the beauty that surrounds us in everything for those willing to see. I decided to upload a series of landscapes, gathered over the years. Mostly in the UK. Most of them have never seen the light of day, because my flower photography has overtaken my world somewhat. And much as I love it, my ‘other’ photography is as important to me. So, here goes. A sultry and hot Summer's day, light quite flat. The lone tree on the top of the ridge of the hill did not look particularly big or strong, it wasn’t even leaning, no winds had bent it although this was quite near the coast of the North Sea, but no, still standing straight! I often feel like that tree...
