West Wick Sunrise

Looking out of the window this morning I could see a bank of cloud to the North and clear skies towards the South with the boundary right above us. Guessing that the sunrise might illuminate the cloud bank from below I headed out with my camera and enjoyed a gloriously lit morning sky. #sunrise

What a change!

Windy Autumn day at Birnbeck.jpgAfter the beautiful, peaceful sunset yesterday – today the southerly wind rushes in at over 40MPH. The tide is one of the highest of the year, so I ventured to see what was happening around Birnbeck – answer? Not as much as I had hoped – the wind was very strong but really only succeeded in flattening any waves. This the best shot of the morning. But with such murky colours I think a monochrome rendition is needed – sea waves breaking

Colourful sunset – Weston Super Mare

The sky looked active and promising for a good sunset this evening so risked the rush hour traffic and got to the sea front in time to see the sun nearing its setting – lighting up the Wheel and casting strong shadow on the ugliest new building in the town.

Sunset on the wheel-3440Turning around to face the sun the view was beautiful – a lone runner made a good focus for this shot. Thanks to the A1 CameraClubWeston – a tip I learned was to close down the aperture to f22 to get the modest starburst effect.

WSM Beach Sunset-3458

Turn back towards the town and the gathering clouds loomed and glowed.

WSM Beach Sunset-3473

Turn again towards the “sea” and the reflections caught my attention for the next image to make.

WSM Beach Sunset-3469

Showing again how it always pays to look behind you when photographing a sunset 🙂

Misty morning on the Somerset Levels

Westhay nature reserve near Glastonbury is a beautiful place – more so at the start and end of the day when the light and atmosphere is changing in exciting ways.

No sign of the recent Osprey, nor the Bearded reedlings. A short-lived view of a kingfisher and an encounter with a Roe Deer was the extent of the wildlife encountered this morning. Clearly Autumn is here and enforcing its presence in more visible and tangible ways.

Awe-inspiring visual arts
