It was a sunny afternoon in late May when the cow parsley photographs (https://lagill6.wordpress.com/2020/05/24/beside-the-bridleway-in-may/) were taken The bridleway was totally deserted – no farm vehicles, no other walkers The silence was punctuated only by birdsong and the occasional bleeting of lambs in distant fields
In such circumstances it was not difficult to become absorbed in the exploration of the scene – noticing the relationship between shapes; contrasting textures and tones; the rhythm of the grasses; patterns; the atmosphere, etc. I accumulated a wealth of material from which I have subsequently enjoyed recalling impressions of the experience. The images in this series are reflections of the feelings and thoughts evoked rather than pictures of the scene.
he salt marshes of North Norfolk provide an endless source of inspiration for the creative artist An atmosphere of quiet stillness is broken on by the occasional birdsong or, from time to time, a passing plane. The moods and colours can change dramatically, and quickly, depending on changing weather conditions.
This series comprises a collection of impressions evoked by the marshes. The longer the viewer can spend with each image the stronger will the sense of place become.
