After the long winter’s night, the sky starts to lighten above a main road as it enters Bristol’s southern suburbs.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for many types of subject, 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.

    That shadow, and the glow in the sky, are quite wonderful.

    Love this – especially the tree in the soft light and its shadow sprawling towards you – and us viewers! It might sound strange but I get a feeling of comfort from these residential street shots (I grew up in such a place and get nostalgic for it from time to time).

  3. The tree casts an eerie shadow, I think I’d like company or a quick sunrise on this street. Excellent photo, Adrian.

      Thank you, Belinda, thank you. As regards the company you’d like on this road, I do provide a bodyguard service, you know; I mean, you’re certainly right to be cautious because, after all, people like me are often around here … πŸ˜‰ …

  5. The best time of the day. I like your positioning for the long shadow and control of the bright light. Is that a chunk of ice by the storm drain?

      Thanks, Steve – yes, it is the best time of day, very good to be out and about in the early hours. No, that’s not ice, I think (horror of horrors!) its plastic!!! We do get ice and snow of course, sometimes quite badly, but often we’re milder. Adrian πŸ™‚

    Yes, like it lots and the promise of spring and light is in the air, even at the other end of the day!

    Are you a closet insomniac? You have so many interesting offerings from first light that I can picture you prowling the pre-dawn streets and fields like a wraith. I can almost hear the owls…

      A closet insomniac? No, I’ve never had any trouble sleeping in closets … πŸ˜‰ …

      Oh and I love “wraith”, distinct echoings of Lord of the Rings there, very much my style!

      But not too sure about the owls, its usually more like “‘Ere, who’s that strange old geezer with a camera?” πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

        What? No Owls? How about howls? No, you’re probably too far northwest for that. But wraiths? Yes, they may well be not that far over your horizons after all. Are there barrows out in the moors you so love?

          Howls??? = Wolves???? Not here, only yapping dogs I’m afraid. Out on the actual moors, the Levels that is, no I don’t think there are barrows, because until relatively very recently the landscape mostly consisted of lakes and marshes – in fact I can recall a map from the 1700s, in which parts of the Levels simply had no detail. But up on the Mendip Hills, another of the landscapes of my youth, which lie between Bristol and the part of the Levels I usually visit, there are plenty of barrows – with wights I wonder … ??? …
