Sitting in my car with heavy rain deluging across the windscreen, looking northwards up the little back road of Jack’s Drove, towards Tealham Moor; 14 Sept 2015.

A view of a favourite place in the world.  Somewhere that I’ve shown you many times before, in all sorts of weathers.  Here it is in pouring rain and the photo looks unlike a photo – which is just fine with me!

And what could I see?   Well, the pale grey tarmac of another single track road – Totney Drove – occupies the foreground, while the narrower tarmac of Jack’s Drove makes off away from us, up the centre of the picture.  And then there are these roads’ green and rough grass verges, and the dark trees – alders on the right of Jack’s Drove, willows on the left.  Finally, in the distance, the slightly higher ground around Wedmore is grey, diffuse and misty.

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.

    Lovely impression! We’re certainly not short of rain this week so far!

    I love this – and I know well from experience that making a blurry, out of focus photo from rain on the windshield (windscreen you call it, right?) does NOT always work. This does! It evokes an old European oil landscape.

      It is like a painting, isn’t it – and I find that always a good sign – to me, that gives the image more value, makes it more satisfying. And yes, I too have had (and continue to have) so many failures with this genre >>> and yes, windscreen on this side of The Pond >>> and boot (for trunk) too!!!!!! ….. I guess its a ….. civilisation thing … !!!!!!! 😉 ………………… 😀 ……….

    Does the heater work in your car? You seem to spend a lot of time sitting in it while it’s raining. ? 🙂


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