Tonight’s piece is supposed to be about photography. Over the last few days I’’ve spent a fair bit of time talking about my photos. The photo at the top is of an old variant of the Gosport Ferry. There have been a couple of times over the last few months when the tide has been so low that the pillars have been completely exposed. This morning at 0621 the tide turned. It was at its lowest point whilst I was stood here. I think the sun was at the correct angle to bring out these colours so I quite like this picture.
It’s actually quite difficult to not write about photography, my pictures in particular, when it’s in my mind. And now, in trying to not write about the photo’s my brain won’t cooperate with me.
It’s magazine time again. My issue of Country Walking has arrived. I’ve only read the first few pages, so I’m not going to comment on it at the moment, but I confess to being slightly frustrated. I want to continue reading Bede’s Ecclesiastical History, it’s becoming very interesting because I have what I would guess is an academically (rather than a popular history) detailed book of the era. It’s fascinating to read about Bede’s account, and then relate that to the book. The history book even refers to Bede, I’ll have to make sure I keep notes. I may have to write several pieces about the book as the Monday night slot will be taken up with magazine reviews. Who would believe that I would get tied in knots about photos?
The walks so far this week have been very pleasant. Dry, except for one brief period this morning when for about a minute there was a very light shower. I’ve had to wrap up though as it has been quite cold. I’m just going to put up one more picture (Oi! Brain, get off those pictures will you).
I just wanted to show a little bit of drama in the sky.
