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.


  1. Beautiful photographs 😀

  2. A great time of year for it; love the first shot, so much to see 😃

      The header is a photo of the nearby dairy farm.

  3. BeckyB says:

    1. Heyjude says:

      The bosky lanes…

  4. restlessjo says:

    Glorious the way the sun lights up the world! Another beauty, Jude 🙂 🙂 Happy Monday!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Yes. Sunlight in winter is so precious and the contrast with those black skies is undeniably beautiful.

  5. Sue says:

    Ah, the light on the tree trunks!

    1. Heyjude says:

      The wonderful golden light of a low winter sun.

      1. Sue says:

        Yes, exactly

    Those roads going through ‘leafy glades’ are one of my favourite things to see when driving around in England.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

      There are hardly any more trees once you leave this lane and head west. Just shrubby little things! What I love about West Penwith is the bleakness and raw beauty of a land that looks untouched, though it obviously was during the mining years.

    Where could that be but England, eh?

  8. Ann Mackay says:

    The sun make me feel so hopeful – it holds promises of spring. 🙂

    1. Heyjude says:

      Gone into hiding again here, but I did see something which looked like sunlight earlier in the day!

    2. Heyjude says:

      Haven’t managed to get out much since these photos! But the bulbs are coming so there is hope.

    I am imagining that tunnel in fresh green spring leaves

    1. Heyjude says:

      I must do a sequence of these lanes in the spring. I did an entire year of walking the lanes around here a few years ago, but I don’t think I captured all the trees.

      1. Murtagh's Meadow says:

        That would be lovely to see

  10. pommepal says:

    So very English. I hope you show us these again when spring has sprung

    1. Heyjude says:

      I shall have to try and remember to do that.

      1. pommepal says:

        I’ll watch for it
