Last of the Early Morning Dew

I didn’t sit down once I reach the top of Knockbrex Hill on the early morning walk! The photos I have posted all week are all from this walk in Galloway, SW Scotland and looking through the images has provided me with some very attractive memories.

That Early Morning Mist

Sunlight was not the only element of the atmosphere on my early morning walks in Scotland. The sun had toy work at lifting the moisture in the air as well as lighting up the landscape.

These views are looking inland from Knockbrex Hill, Galloway.

That Early Morning Dew

Early morning sunlight, dew on the grass and flowers – what more could you ask for?

The Daffodils have been and almost gone at Easter time in Galloway, Scotland but the Bluebells are coming through and both the flowers and the grass look like they are revealing in the early morning sun.

That Early Morning Light

The angle of light on the stones on this beach proves the walk I had that morning in Galloway, SW Scotland really was not long after sunrise.

That Early Morning Look

I woke early on a number of occasions while we were in Scotland, and when the sun is rising in a place like Galloway, there is nothing better than an early morning walk!

Sea and Sky – the absence of sunlight

Absence of sunlight does not necessarily mean the scene will be less beautiful / dramatic / atmospheric.

These photos I took on the Galloway coast in SW Scotland are almost Rothko-esque in their subtlety of colour, tone and texture. The sea merged into the sky but as the colour of one reflects the colour of the other, I guess that merging should be expected. It is just the differing textures or a hint of land (rock) that allows us to understand the view.

Filtered Out – Not Overflowing

Images that didn’t make it into the Autumn Reservoir Walk I recently produced. It wasn’t that I was un happy with the composition or quality of the images – they were just not essential in describing the walk around the reservoir.

Hereford Cathedral

Not affected by the flooding River Wye, Hereford cathedral is still undergoing repairs.

The tree in this photo conveniently hides the scaffolding covering the main side entrance to the cathedral. I was tempted to enhance the effect of the lowering sun on the front of the building but decided in the end that it was enough like a picture postcard already!

Peace in the City

There are not many places these days that take a break at any time of the year. Belfast, however, is one city where you can find it relatively quiet on Boxing Day. Unless things have changed in the last few years, the shops would not have opened and the sales would not have started.

That does not mean there is no activity but as you can see from the first photo below, the streets are not crammed with traffic jams and crowds of people rushing all over the place. There’s nothing like taking a little time out once in a while!

Happy New Year everyone 🙂
