The Dying of the Light

Now the clocks have fallen back for winter, I count every moment of daylight. The work day dawns as I head to the train station, but has long since given way to night by the time I arrive home.

A Winter’s Tail

On a night walk west, a glance east towards the rising full moon on the last night of Winter. The clocks went forward this morning. Now, to Spring.

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.

Welcoming Advent on my morning walk along the quayside at Wivenhoe, before starting another day working from home.
