Day 32 – Winter gardening

"Nature has undoubtedly mastered the art of winter gardening and even the most experienced gardener can learn from the unrestrained beauty around them." ~  Vincent A. Simeone

Frost white trees against blue skies. undress

Day 24 – Undress

It is a spur that one feels at this season more than at any other. How nimbly you step forth! The woods roar, the waters shine, and the hills look invitingly near. You do not miss the flowers and the songsters, or wish the trees or fields any different, or heavens any nearer. Every object pleases.... the straight light-gray trunks of the trees... how curious they look, and as if surprised in undress. ~ John Burroughs, "Winter Sunshine"

Pink and purple sky cloud colours in sunset sky

Day 22 – Cloud color

“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.” ~ Rabindranath Tagore I hate the thick grey cloud cover we get here in the UK but when the clouds break and the sun is setting then together they create a very beautiful sky show.

Looking up the outside of the Shard in London to blue skies. Towers over london

Day 15 – Towers over London

“Construction is the art of making a meaningful whole out of many parts. Buildings are witnesses to the human ability to construct concrete things. I believe that the real core of all architectural work lies in the act of construction. At the point in time concrete materials are assembled and erected, the architecture we have been looking for becomes part of the real world.” ~ Peter Zumthor This is The Shard. At 95 storeys it towers over London from its position at London Bridge. It is the tallest building in the United Kingdom and the 4th tallest in Europe. The…

Sunset silhouetting windfarm windmills. The sun, the giver of life

Day 10 – Giver of life

“If I had to choose a religion, the sun as the universal giver of life would be my god.” ~ Napoléon Bonaparte Of course sustaining life on earth is more than just about the sun and making sure we don't damage our fragile planet and allow the sun to actually burn life to a crisp is definitely a hot topic (excuse the pun) these days. However as a sun worshiper, no matter what time of year it is, I have to agree to with Napoléon.

Day 316 – Big world

“The world's big and I want to have a good look at it before it gets dark.” ~ John Muir I want to see so much of it but time and money are rather limiting however I am glad that I have the luxury of a camera in my life so that I can capture the bits I do get to see. It is very easy to take something like that for granted leaving in the west. Everyone has a camera now but that is not actually everyone, only everyone in this part of the world. There are lots more…

Day 314 – Cloud Shapes

“When people look at clouds they do not see their real shape, which is no shape at all, or every shape, because they are constantly changing. They see whatever it is that their heart yearns for.” ~ José Eduardo Agualusa I hate those grey skies where a thick blanket of heavy cloud is spreads across the roof of our world as far as the eye can see. England is notorious for those skies and they can often stay for what seems like weeks on end especially during the winter. However shapely clouds that float across a beautiful blue sky is…

Rollar coaster in the sky

Day 313 – Enjoy

"Life is like a roller coaster, live it, be happy, enjoy life." ~ Avril Lavigne I am not a roller coaster fan, unlike my kids, but I do think life should be enjoyed. Every day life can make that difficult sometimes. Chipping away at us with obligations and time consuming activities. I think in this modern world it is increasing important to discipline oneself to find time to live, be happy and enjoy.

Wind power generator with sunset, renewable

Day 300 – Renewable world

"There is an urgent need to stop subsidizing the fossil fuel industry, dramatically reduce wasted energy, and significantly shift our power supplies from oil, coal, and natural gas to wind, solar, geothermal, and other renewable energy sources." ~ Bill McKibben I know that some people hate the way these wind farms look. They don't want them in their communities blighting the landscape. In some ways I can understand that and yet you have to think about a bigger picture. Think about how nuclear power stations not only look but the threat they pose to a huge area in which they…

London Shard sky

Day 290 – A Shard of London

"There is nothing more poetic and terrible than the skyscrapers' battle with the heavens that cover them." ~ Federico Garcia Lorca This is the Shard. It is 95 storeys high and towers 309.6 metres up into the sky above. It is the tallest building in the Untied Kingdom. Construction was completed in Nov 2012 and the viewing platform right up there in the very pinnacle of this amazing building was open to the subject in early 2013. If you are in London and what to get the best view over this amazing city then I highly recommend a trip up…

Evening sunlight through the clouds dance with light

Day 279 – Dance with light

"Nature is so powerful, so strong. Capturing its essence is not easy - your work becomes a dance with light and the weather. It takes you to a place within yourself." ~ Annie Leibovitz

Day 270 – Iconic London

"There's nowhere else like London. Nothing at all, anywhere." ~ Vivienne Westwood I suspect this might be true of a few major cities in the world that are steeped in culture, history and iconic views to go with them. However London is somehow extra special. As a Londoner maybe I might be biased but to me it is the best place in the world and I love going there so very much. I had to wait a little while to get this shot. It is not that the buses where rare, quite the opposite, there was often too many of…
