I was starting to suffer with cabin fever, being cooped up indoors with all the storms, so it was a good decision to go for a walk with the camera today in the sunshine. As you can see this road will be closed tomorrow, and so it was a good opportunity to have a closer look.
The flood waters along the lane are starting to disappear, but the footpath is very muddy still.
You may recognise this photo.. but there is no snow!
his particular field may be full of houses in a few years if the planners allow it...... such a shame.
This is becoming very rusty.. I think the telephone company have forgotten it exists.
Just to prove I was taking the photos... my shadow!
The planning notice on the post tells about the road closure for a month.
I did take my sketchbook for a walk as well, but it was such a cold wind that I got very cold and so had to keep moving. I am sorely tempted to use some of these images and develop a sketchbook working in the studio. I know that Jean Littlejohn and Jan Beaney used their surroundings for inspiration for a whole body of work. That may be the way to go forward.
I found an inspiring interview with them on the web.. have a look here.
