Strife in the garden!
Filed under Colour, Flowers, Garden, harmony, photography, shapes, Uncategorized
A scene characteristic of the British countryside at this time – the combination of cow parsley, rape and (on a good day) a clear blue sky.

Gallery Series I/8
I would like you, the viewer, to visualise each image as a softly lit large scale canvas (say, approximately, 8 feet square) on a white gallery wall and imagine quietly contemplating the abstract pattern. Attention should focus on a feeling response rather than a rational analysis. The use of the magnifier to enlarge the image may be helpful.

Sunlight and shadows
As autumn encroaches the foliage on the cotinus becomes less dense and allows the sunlight to filter through, casting shadow patterns on the leaves beneath. Textures and colours become prominent. Fleetingly, illuminated abstract patterns emerge, contrasting with the shadowy surroundings.

Today in the garden

Change is in the air
The photos below were taken during a stroll along the bridle way on Sunday morning, the last day of September. There are clear indications of the transition from late summer into autumn.

Although the buttercup has suffered from the persistent rains, the cow parsley and grasses have positively thrived. The verge beside the bridle way is waist high.
The picture below was taken in morning sunlight, looking across the field adjacent to my garden.

It was my hope to be posting photos of the meadow in its buttercup season – the meadow in which the dandelions bloomed gustily a few weeks ago. Sadly, the weather has been against the buttercup. Its early promise was cut short by the rain, wind and cold temperatures. Instead, I am posting photos of the same meadow taken in late May two years ago. I was hoping for a repetition!

Portraits of two friends
These are two good friends of mine whose company I have enjoyed in the garden over the past two weeks or so.

‘Amid the alien corn’
Scenes such as this have been commonplace across the length and breadth of the UK in recent weeks. Field upon field has been taken over by the acid yellow of rape seed plants. The area under rape seed cultivation, and hence the amount of yellow, has expanded greatly in recent years. Clearly it is commercially profitable. But among the general public it is not unanimously welcome. Many see the yellow as brash and jarring compared with the relatively subdued palette of the native vegetation.

As moths are attracted to a lamp in the evening, so photographers are often attracted to lichen. Why, then, another lichen photo? Simply because I like it – and I offer no apology! I am fascinated by the shapes, the colours, the mosaic-like natural patterning, the textures etc. It is just a very pleasing subject.

This picture is intended as semi- abstract pattern in yellow. Yes, its source is fairly clear but try to close down the left brain, the logical/reasoning side, and focus on the feeling/the mood evoked by the various shades of yellow. It would help if you click the image to enlarge it. The purpose is not to make clear the details but rather to increase the expanse of yellow. Enjoy this ‘yellow feeling’ for its own sake.
How was it for you? What feeling(s) did you experience?
