My photographs today have been taken around my local area over the last three or four weeks.
Lost By The Wayside
I found the Conker still in its shell by the roadside in Lost By The Wayside on my way out to an appointment. I did not have my camera with me, so reached for my phone. I am very pleased with the way this has turned out as I had not used the phone camera before. I softened the image a little in photoshop as I was not happy with the sharpness of the tarmac behind the Conker.
Sunlight And Shadow was taken when I went out hunting for Sea Lions at Heysham. The Lake District mountains can be seen looming in the background, dark and brooding, while in the foreground the Kent Channel is visible. The channel changes its course regularly as do the other river channels in the bay, just one of the reasons you need a trained guide to take you across....the other is quicksands, which when close to the promenade and sea-front, are marked by red flags as a warning to walkers and bathers.

I am not a fan of Nuclear Power. It is dirty, nasty radioactive energy. We have several reactors locally with plans to build more.....they are a major Blot On The Landscape and damaging to the local environment....

My final shot for today, Chapel Ruins I is a more peaceful spot, St. Patricks Chapel Ruins on the headland at Heysham. There are many small, winding paths up the cliffs and round the base of the chapel. This is a view of the pathway leading to the chapel through a stone arch, the edge of which can be seen at the end of the path.

I had a very busy week last week and have not been able to find a lot of time for art, and I have another busy week away from my studio... I am hoping that I will have more time this week though, and will be posting more work later in the week.
