A few photographs taken on a bike ride exploring the woodlands, churchyards and country lanes of Hertfordshire on May Day 2023.
A cycle ride in Dorset on Easter Sunday to hunt out the spirit of a place.
During lockdown I shared a photograph a day taken in earlier years. This is Kinsale in Ireland.
From my archive and another trip down memory lane for me (thank you for indulging me!) this photograph was taken today in 2018 in Bridlington in the the East Riding of Yorkshire.
Today’s photograph was taken on this day two years ago. At that time I was recovering from a broken collarbone so my explorations were confined to train assisted rambles. This one involved a train ride to Leigh on Sea in Essex and than a hike across some fields to the castle. Building began in 1215 and it was refortified during the Hundred Wars Year. In Georgian times the towers were used by customs men to keep a look out for smugglers up the Thames estuary below.
Why do I take landscape photographs, and why these particular photographs? What caught my eye that day and why do I want to share them with you?
Chesil Beach in Dorset is one of my favourite places to photograph. I especially love the colours of some of the pebbles, as shown in these photographs.
