Starting to take pictures again! These are from Florence and Siena where it weas rather grey and cold – with snow flurries!
Open Studios at Art at The Works starts on 29th August and finishes on Sunday 6th September – open 11 – 5 or by appointment. I am exhibiting, as last year, with Clare Law. Lots of interesting work from both of us as well as cards and unmounted work in the browser.
Snow, Snow, Snow, Snow, Snow, Snow, Snow, Snow!!!
I have been looking for images for Christmascards today, and found this from a couple of years back – there is something about it that I like, strange really as barbed wire is so un snow like!!
Although vision is still blurred I have managed to get a few photos – the magic of modern cameras (these are from a point and shoot and I did!), some of these are the ice on the side of the River Tamar which almost seems fluid as the tide ebbs and flows. And one is to show that spring is just around the corner………
Again these have not been played with – some were taken before dawn or sunrise over Dartmoor, again with one eye out of commission.
Having had problems with one eye I am reduced to momocular vision, and it is my photographing eye that is wearing the pirates patch, I still wanted to get the splendor of the snow, so here is one lot after the first 4 inch fall, the additional 5 inches will follow later. Because using the computer is very dificult, I need new glasses and I cant have them untill my bad eye recovers – 6 weeks so everything is blurred – these images are as taken, no Lightroom or Photoshop!
I managed to get up and out yesterday, the sun and mist were too tempting, and although well below freezing it was dry. A short walk to a Milleneum Green and views across Dartmoor and Plymouth produced the following! I like the way that the views are almost cardboard cutouts …………
After one of the coldest nights for a while – a walk along the Tamar and up into the woods produced a series of chilled photos! The river had frozen at the edges during hightide leaving the ice as it lowered…..
November snow on Dartmoor. This was at least 3 days after it had snowed, and photographed from several miles away on a very cold Sunday afternoon. Also, a couple of local headgerow finds!
