Wintry Light and Shadow


The Wintry light and shadow in the English landscape is magnificent to behold. The contrast can be extremely sharp. It’s both beautiful and a little ominous. This was the view from our backyard at 4pm today. I was entranced by it.


About Don

I love life. Sometimes it makes sense, other times not. Discerning its underlying patterns and beauty always provides great reward and meaning and is a passion I ineptly follow. I feel deeply attached to nature and love the sea with its distinct moods and colour and find walking along its beaches wonderfully inspiring. Writing, sketching and photography is a sheer joy for me and the blog is one of the places I am able to express these pursuits.

  1. Are we looking out the same window, Don? Except it’s 11:51 AM, and my view is Salina, KS, looking west across the plains where the silos in the far distance store wheat.
    The mist is both eerie and calm, a quiet time before the predicted winds howl in this afternoon.

    I can feel the descending temperature and hush of the evening closing in at that moment, Don, and there certainly can be a comfort in that kind of feeling – assuming we have a roof over our heads.

      You’re right, Hariod. That hush you speak of is so real. There’s a bird that visits the field in the image; it has the most beautiful call and to hear it in that hush is wonderful.

  3. Beautiful capture Don.


  4. Beautiful photo of a typical winter sky – I love the way the dark clouds break to allow light and blue through.
