Changing Face of London

Victorian Terrace

Contrast of the Old and the New

London is a fast moving city. The landscape and make up of this city is ever changing. Central London has had a huge development of luxury apartments and modern office space. The design of modern architecture is effortlessly sleek and I like the clean lines. Homes have also started to look like offices as clean lines are echoed throughout living spaces.

Autumn Colours

Autumn Colours in Greenwich Park

Leaves Take on the Colours of Autumn

Beautiful Autumn Colours Glow in Seasonal Mists

Seasons change and in the Park leaves turn golden and copper and I can see Autumn colours everywhere.  This is a season I love to photograph especially when gentle mists blow in.  Today is no exception, and as I make my way through the Park I hear leaves crunch underfoot.  It was only a few weeks ago and leaves were still green covering branches.  Continue reading »

Iris Flowers Tempting Light

Light Colours of the Iris

Today the light in the Flower Garden is amazing.  I make my way through the park looking for illumination…and I come across a planting of Irises which are temptingly still in bud.  Their colours are just starting to show through their buds.  Light is illuminating the whole of their surface Continue reading »

Iris Summer Flower

Softness of Summer Flowers

Greenwich Park has awoken from a long sleep and is ready to burst with colour.  Summer flowers are in bud and wait for the sun to finally bloom.  The park is stirring with life and soon the air will be filled with scents.  The Iris is still in bud.  The form of the flower can just be seen as it grows from its stem.  The blue colouration of the Iris flower is just visible Continue reading »

Photographing a Misty Day

Walking in the Mist…

Mist in the Park

The Mist Rises Eerily from the Ground

I love photographing mist.  It is a time when few people are around as the damp, the wet and lack of visibility keeps them away.  For photographers it is a time of reflection as it forces us to consider absolutely what we want to photograph and how much of it we want to see in our photographs.

Misty today as I set out…visibility is down to about 15 yards.  The park is silent as I walk through taking in shapes and forms of the landscape. Continue reading »

Spring Has Sprung

Signs of Spring

Spring Buds

Flowering Blossom Buds Waiting to Bloom

There has been a change in the life of the Park.  Today I noticed that buds are getting ready for their time to bloom.  The Park has awakened from its winter sleep and is stirring with new life.  This is an exciting time of change and one which I eagerly await.  I love the life in the Park as she goes through her seasonal changes.  Every day has something to admire and wonder at its gentle beauty.  Here the blossom trees are getting ready to bloom, soft buds reaching up towards the light.  Already you can see Continue reading »
