Black and White Reflections

This week I braved the elements to take some fresh photos for the 2018picoftheweek challenge.


Flooded fields and puddled paths bedevilled my cross-country walk from Acle to Norwich on Thursday: Photo 15th February 2018

I wasn’t sure of the wisdom of this walk having a mild case of vertigo in aftermath of a sinus infection and/or a cold. But the sun was shining, the temperature set to rise to almost 10C, and the Met Office forecast no rain today. The only drawback was the wind, which became intense as the day progressed (so I hopped on a bus for the last couple miles).

The route runs more of less parallel with the A47, threading through the villages of North Burlingham, Hemblington, Blofield Heath and Little Plumstead. But most of that route, being along farm tracks and through woods, was thoroughly muddy. I learned to mud-skate! And it was worth it (even if Friday I suffered).

Catkins, Signs of Spring

When I got home and downloaded the photos, I regretted not taking the Rebel. These  were taken on a Canon Ixus, a small ‘pop it in a pocket’ camera, but it hasn’t the controls I’ve come to rely on.

    You’ve definitely become a committed shutterbug when you regret taking the convenient camera!
    And I’m happy to note a few plants emerging in our side yard. Sadly, they’re going to get snowed on tonight.
