A rough, stormy sky: clouds and east-facing houses catch the first, blazing rays of the rising sun.  On the right, a telegraph pole spreads its net of telephone wires to the surrounding houses, and there is another of these poles further up the road.  These are older, semi-detached houses, probably built sometime in the 1930s or 1940s.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer - using mono, colour and combinations of the two - many types of subject, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous, trying new ideas, working in multiple genres. And I've a weakness of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    This is a beauty, Adrian. I don’t normally see telephone poles with lines that radiate like that – and what wonderful light you found there!

      Thank you, Lynn, indeed a spectacular morning. And with sunrise getting later and the sun getting lower in the sky as autumn draws on, I’m hoping for more. I always carry the little Olympus TOUGH camera now. A 🙂


  2. Fabulous shot, bud. 👍🏼
