light and shade

A short series of views from around Trencrom hill taken in early January 2021. Being forced into yet another lockdown and being confined to our local area I had the idea of going out each day with a different theme in mind. This second series is all about light and shade.

    How unusual to see a weathervane at that level. Makes a great shot! 🙂 🙂

      I wonder if it came from another building? Or perhaps it is home-made. Lots of artist studios around here.

      1. restlessjo says:

        Interesting, anyway 🤣. Fine performance from Raf. Just off out for a walk. 💕💕

        1. Heyjude says:

          Take me with you! Still frigid here and a gale force wind to make matters worse. Look out for some yellows!!

        2. restlessjo says:

          Lots of Oxalis! See you later 🤗💕

    That’s a bit if a random weather vane. I like it though.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Random placement, yes!

    The light on the distant hill is lovely

    1. Heyjude says:

      It glows at this time of the year. Well not today, nothing is glowing today! The air is frigid!

      1. Sue says:

        We’re colder than you, ostensibly, but you’ve probably got stronger winds, so end result similar! -1 at the mo, -5 later this evening….. But I want to be out, the sun is shining 🙁

        1. Heyjude says:

          No sun here at all – a white sky which seems to suck the colour out of everything.

    This is a very pleasing project, Jude. And a wonderful capturing of the light.

    1. Heyjude says:

      The winter light is so low that it creates a wonderful warm glow, contrasting with the moody skies. I figured I’d have a go at trying to capture that light.

      1. Mary Jo Malo says:

        You succeeded! And that weather vane must be a joke for the city folk 🙂

    I like the weather vane being donw low for a change. 🙂
    Eye-blistering sunshine here today, reflected off the snow so doubling the intensity. Better than gloom of course, but I had to close the curtains this morning.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    I rather like the idea of randomly placed weather vanes – it should be a thing!
