This month  Wild Daffodil’s Monthly Meet Up has the theme “Tree”. Here are some trees from my archives, some of which you may have seen before. Trees are amazing and provide us with so much:- fuel, food, shelter, oxygen to name just a few.

Weekly photo Challenge – Abstract

It was Joel Sternfeld’s quote which inspired me to try this photograph in black and white.

Black and white is abstract; color is not. Looking at a black and white photograph, you are already looking at a strange world.


Posted as part of this week’s weekly photo challenge – Abstract where Ben Huberman asks us to find something new and mysterious in something familiar.


Happy Winter Solstice

Today is the Winter Solstice and I find myself breathing a sigh of relief. At least from now the days will be getting longer and not shorter. And what is more we have had the sun out for most of the day and I got a lovely walk. This in one of my favourite trees in the neighbourhood – an old ash tree, gnarled and worn with a great cavity. A true elder of our community, who has seen many winter solstices.

Wishing you all a very Happy Winter Solstice
