Changing light

HYDES POOL WEDNESBURY

As we move through spring, everything changes for landscape photography. There are amazing floral displays as the trees blossom and the light seems to change every day. There is now a better chance of getting good light and dramatic effects in the evening now the days are longer as we approach the spring equinox. For some photos you need the morning light. (more…)

Hoss Muck #review

HERITAGE (4)

This photo of a wood pile  one of the more usual photographs I’ve taken here in the Black Country. I saw in local news that one place I have taken photos is now become a dumping group and someone has dumped what we in the Black Country call a load of ‘hoss muck’. The council says this is a bio-hazard. (more…)


Spring renewal #Sunday #ramble

SPRING DAFFODILS

Spring is a time of renewal as nature bursts into bloom with a colourful display of flowers and new leaves on the trees. Even us mere humans sense a time of renewal. In China, they celebrate for a week at the Spring Festival, which we in our ignorance call Chinese New Year. It’s a good time for change in all respects. (more…)


First day of spring #review

A mid-winter ramble

In the movies you get that guy who lives in the big house all alone and looks a bit weird. I think that’s me! I have a house guest at the moment. My brother joked that I could be the axe murderer. I joked that when my guest goes home, he could call the police and say she’s missing; they might come and dig my garden for me! (more…)


Easter 2013

Woden Road South, Wednesbury

I took this photo in March last year, the weather was warm and sunny, before the rains came. This year, my lawn is covered in snow. Is climate change to blame? That was the subject of one of my articles this week. The UK government will be cutting welfare this week too, the poor will get poorer.

More snow hits the UK

It’s nearly Easter and we have more snow! It was the first day of Spring on Wednesday and just as you thought it was safe, the snow came again. The weather here is as unpredictable as the politics, but doesn’t it make life interesting? Getting around today is a little difficult, the bus station was closed.

Sunday thoughts of sunshine

A factory sunset

This week George Osborne told the world that the government wants to sell it’s shares in Royal Bank of Scotland, signalling intent to dump billion of pounds worth on the stock market. This was done to coincide with the bank announcing huge ‘paper’ losses. Not surprisingly the banks share price tanked on the stock market and so did Lloyd’s Banking Group. Well done George…
