Neodigital Art | Changing scenes
I took this picture of the ‘Sanna’ in August and I went back again on Sunday to see what it looked like in winter. Quite a change:
The pool is losing all it’s water and you can now see the origins of the pool. It was originally a created by quarrying; probably for coal. The colours have changed with winter and even the tree I used to give my photograph a little depth has gone. A lot of the places I have photographed last year have changed and not just with the seasons.
The council have installed this low fence ‘to stop cars parking on the grass’. I have never seen a car on the grass only a council van, I assume they feed the ducks and geese when they aren’t admiring the view. I was told they weren’t council workers and they were fattening them up for Christmas! Maybe, the little fence is to keep duck and geese thieves off?
I suppose I can get a scenic shot from the end of the lake. I got as far as I could toward the end so I was shooting down the lake with a little of the tree in the foreground to give it depth. When I edited the picture, I added highlights, contrast and warmth; that made the picture a little darker and so I lightened it. I think it’s quite good for a winter scene.
In winter, when the light is poor I can always take photographs of buildings. This is a pub of course. The local people will know it’s the Gospel Oak pub just outside Wednesbury, otherwise known as Mother Shipton’s or Shippies. The canal in the header picture at the top of the page runs to here. I remember many years ago walking the tow path at lunchtime on Sunday to have a drinks in this pub before lunch. The locals might not be familiar with the pool in the first picture which is the ‘Sanna’ in Morecroft Wood, near Moxley and the second pool or lake is along side of Woden Road South in Wednesbury.
