Neodigital Art | Changing seasons
This photo was taken in Morecroft Wood and it’s a pool that the locals call the ‘Sanna’. Many years ago there was a sanatorium nearby that was viewed as quite a scary place because it was an isolation hospital mainly used to isolate people with contagious diseases like smallpox. You had to be quite brave to go swimming or fishing in the ‘Sanna’. I stayed well away until I was a teenager when we did go near there, but even then we were cautious! There was a chemical factory not far away and that was probably more dangerous than smallpox!
The first picture was taken in Spring and the second one in Autumn, the colour are very similar but they are very different pictures. The water had drained away through the summer; we didn’t have very much rain despite the dull days.
This is Forge Mill lake in Autumn and there are ducks and geese. The water birds vary from pool to pool but there are usually some birds but I didn’t see any on the Sanna. Even the canal gets ducks! There are no shortage of birds here. The one thing the pools and lakes have in common where the geese are, is that they are fed. They aren’t fed at the Milky pool as far as I know and there are no geese but plenty of swans, ducks and pigeons!
This is the ‘Sanna’ in summer and the colours are very different from Spring and Autumn. Even though there was quite bright sunlight, this turned out dark and I had to edit and lighten it.
This one is the ‘Milky Pool’ in summer and the colours changed dramatically in Autumn.
This is a lake I often photograph near my home and this was at the beginning of Autumn but we had nice weather and the sunshine made the view really good. The sun shining off the trees as they changed colour for Autumn gave me a nice picture. I remember that day and the light was great!
