Sunset yesterday evening

These photographs were taken from my back doorstep around 5 o’clock yesterday.  The weather throughout the day had been very mixed  –  very windy, occasional brief bursts of sunshine, a little rain  and a lot of cloud.  This sunset was therefore a very pleasant and unexpected surprise.

Snowdrops

 

There can be few more uplifting sights than the banks of snowdrops that appear in abundance at this time of the year.  The resilience of these small flowers never ceases to amaze, however severe the weather might be.  In fact, this particular winter has been remarkably mild   –  so far!

Under the influence of Jackson Pollock

While processing   Wave Patterns  (https://lagill6.wordpress.com/2016/12/16/wave-patterns/) it occurred to me that the central section of the exploding wave shared something of the energy and accidental patterning characteristic of some of Jackson Pollock’s work.  I have tried to capture this in the above image.

Impressionism?

Maybe –   just maybe –   the Impressionists would have approved of my efforts to interpret this patch of natural vegetation on the sand dunes at Thorpeness.
