fascinating changeability

 1st December 2023, Warkworth, 8am

I waited in the car until the snow stopped and the shower headed off to the north.

Fossils in the sandstone.  I'm told they are Stigmaria, the roots of giant lycopods (nearest modern relatives are club mosses, but these ancient plants were massive at 30m plus)

rainbow closing in

 27th November, Warkworth, 9am

It all started off sunny but the distant rainbow suggested there were showers about.

Sure enough the rainbow became more and more beautiful as the shower approached.  We didn't get very wet in the end.

catching up with myself

to be beside the sea

 10th November 2023, Boulmer to Howick, 8am

While the rain pattered on the skylight 
I lay in my bed listening to Joni Mitchell 
Sing her songs to me 

Full of inspiration 
As the rainy day turned to blue 
I headed off to find the sun 
And be beside the sea.

An old photography trick.

The reflections in the river turned upside down.

A beautiful autumn run as the sun sank to the horizon.
