Abstract 142 ‘Message from the dark wood’!

After the showers

Yesterday was a day of heavy showers, punctuated by occasional brief spells of sunshine.  It was mischievous weather  –  the sort that lulled you into a false sense of security and then soaked you to the skin!

But by early evening the showers had ceased and the rays of the sinking sun produced a range of soft pinks and blues in the passing clouds.  The only sounds were bird songs, the occasional bleating of lambs in the sheep field and the apologetic hourly chime from the clock in the church tower.  It was a magical time.

Peeling Paint

There is something incredibly tactile about a picture of peeling paint  –  if it is possible to have a tactile picture.  Certainly I have a powerful urge to get at the screen and remove those curling flakes.  I can feel the satisfaction even as I type the words!

Something fishy!

Down at the reservoir, while the coots were cooting and the swans were swanning, across the causeway four anglers were …..  well, what were they doing?  Two boats, each with two anglers, were nestled together, but only one angler had a fishing rod and, even more strangely, he had two rods in one hand!!  It was all very odd and I’ve no idea what was going on!

More Pond Images

It is interesting to compare the black and white images below with the colour image, Pond Abstract, posted recently.  All of the shots were taken within seconds of each other.  It seems to me that the monochrome pictures convey a sense of energy and movement, which is the essence of these photos.  The colour image, I find more static but with  a strong ‘pattern’ interrelationship between shapes and colours.
