A good and very valued friend, many thousands of miles away from here, is in need of some tlc – tender loving care. 

And I hope that this image, and the warm thoughts that underlie it, will go some way in that direction.

What does this image show?  Well, Mallards (foreground) and Tufted Ducks, in rising mist, quite early in the day, on a lake near here.

And Minimalism too, there’s not a lot here after all, just some birds, their scant reflections, and a long ripple in the water.  But maybe just now is a good time for this picture’s simplicity, serenity and calm, a time when these emotions are of especial worth.

And who am I sending this to?  She will know.




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.

    She’s fortunate to have you for a friend, and hopefully more like you. Your art has cheered me up on many an occasion as well, and I’m very pleased to be able to count you among mine.
