Looking up over our garden this morning – clouds and a contrail caught by the rising sun; 22 Apr 2013.

I was just on the point of making that greatest of luxuries, the morning’s first cup of tea, when I glanced out of the window.  And then came one of the great improbables – a FATman moving at a rate of knots – in a frantic dash out into the back garden!

I love skies  and clouds but, especially when the sun is just appearing or disappearing, and when contrails are moving steadily across the sky, things happen quickly – and there’s no time to hang about!

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    I would never have even considered taking the colour out of a beautiful sunrise… but strange things happen…. I like it. 🙂

      Excellent!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 This blog’s Health Warning includes the strange things that often do happen here >>> but that I should have persuaded you – Miss Brightest Of Bright Rainbows! – to like a black and white sunrise … well, I consider that quite an achievement – thank you, my friend, thank you! I may have to have a big cigar and put my feet up! 🙂


This blog has two pleasures for me - creating the images and hearing from you - so get your thoughts out to the world!
