So the tide of summer has turned and the days and nights have seen the temperatures dropping to single figures. While I’m sad that the opportunity to go naked camping or the chance to strip of at the club has gone, I’m all set to move into photography mode and the different opportunities the winter brings. To be honest I haven’t actually stopped taking photos as I do take every opportunity nearly every day to try and shoot something unusual.
Today as we drove along the A12 we passed a lorry that was well and truly alight and last week at Woodham Fen I managed to get some great photos of the sunset,which made it look like the sky was on fire.Yesterday on my day off I ventured into Brooks nature reserve near Stisted and managed to get some nice shots of the autumnal sun through the tree,but the birds and animals proved allusive. I did see a deer and some birds but they scarpered as soon as I positioned to shoot.
I love the countryside where on the whole its peaceful and free of people and traffic. My mind is free to wander and think of times when life was a whole lot simpler. Recently I walked around what used to be RAF Rivenhall and on the way home after a stop at the pub could imagine USAF bomber flying over the trees near our house returning from a bombing mission during WWII.
