Joyous Answer

 11th June 2021, Boulmer, 6am

The early light wakes me 
And makes me curious 
For what’s going on 
Down by the sea 

Not a lot 
Is the joyous answer

white feet

Up bright and early.  This continued warm and dry weather means you just sling on shorts and a shirt and off you go...

Trying to let my feet catch up with the tan on my legs

there and back again

Exercising the semi-retired status today. We had a lovely long walk from High Newton to Dunstanburgh and back via a refreshment break in the sun outside the Ship Inn.

Beautiful wild flowers and grasses - always worth spending a moment's appreciation as you walk by...

guessing wrong

I went to the beach despite days of misty fret but I found bright skies and long shadows.  I was dressed for a chilly walk and soon git a bit warm. I'm not complaining though. 

Two very different subjects today but the link is the simplicity of the compositions and how the weather has led to that simplicity. In one, the mist, the flat sky and the calm sea and in the other bright direct sunlight against a proper blue sky just a mile inland.

making the most of it.

A very fretty day on the coast.  Warm and sunny a mile inland.

Some visitors were making the most of it.  You gotta surf when the surf's up!

not thinking

 15th May 2021, Warkworth, 3pm

How pleasant to be beside a field full of flowers, with plenty of time to just lie on the ground composing photographs. 

Here and now I'm thinking about nothing but the natural scene in front of me and how to make a nice photograph from the infinite possibilities. 

For me, moments like this combine photography with mindfulness and give my head a break from all the usual stuff we all worry about.
