Rural idyll – the morning drive to work across Tadham Moor, on the Somerset Levels south of Wedmore; 18 Nov 2016.

Sunrise tints the sky, and two cars face each other down on Totney Drove, the sole east-west tarmac strip across this dripping and glutinous area of lowland.  Driving here, we are below sea level.

The road is single track, someone will have to pull over or back up – but most of the drivers here are locals and usually they are very courteous – which only adds to the pleasure of visiting this little out of the way, backwater of a place.

There is another picture of the morning drive to work across these flatlands, here.

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.

    Just enough light to see what’s going on and to convey the tensions of those early drives to work.


  2. Meanderer says:

    Love this, Adrian – the grittiness of it. There are many single track lanes around here and we have to negotiate a bendy one every time we go out. There’s always a potential surprise around every corner: cars, vans, tractors, cyclists, walkers, dog-walkers, joggers, deer, pheasants ……. you get my drift 🙂


  3. Both the b/w shot and this one are great.


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