Sunrise over Tadham Moor, on the Somerset Levels; 9 Jan 2015.

A very quiet and simple scene.  Totney Drove, a single track, metalled lane, passes through a small group of tall willows that, as so frequently happens with such silhouettes, reminds me of an exploding artillery shell.  The trees are reflected in the still waters of the rhyne (rhymes with seen), the water-filled ditch which borders the road and which acts as a field boundary.

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 for Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    Such a warm, content glow. (We’ll forgive you for not realizing that important fact about you-know-who. As a former New Yorker, I can tell you that he was not a well-respected businessman in that town, either. NYC, the place where he was based and well known, did not vote for him.)

      Well, there are many things that I don’t keep up with, and that I’m unaware of, but I must say that reading somewhere about his complete lack of relevant experience did come as a shock – while of course making clear the reason for his appearing so frequently completely out of his depth in state/international affairs – its a really extraordinary situation.


  2. Beautiful. Takes me back to the English Romantic paintings of 200 years ago. Lovely time travel.

      Thank you, my friend. I’ve stumbled upon something that I really ought to have realised before – which is that prior to becoming “president” of one of the world’s biggest countries, Trump was a businessman, with no governing/government experience whatsoever, which to me is quite a staggering fact. Which is why of course he so often looks completely out of his depth. 😦


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