Another glorious day meant it was way to hot to venture out until 8.00pm in the evening. With sunset not until 9.20pm that’s not such a problem, the woods were still really dark with the heavy summer canopy blocking out much of the sunlight…so, this is a public footpath we (still) haven’t followed across the field of barley. I haven’t done any HDR for a while – so it was nice to run this shot through Photomatix to create this shot.

It was a beautiful morning in Great Dunmow today, just after sunrise with the mist still lingering across the fields viewed from the top of Beaumonts Lane…lovely start to the day.

We’re getting to the time that the sun is already coming above the horizon when I set off for my morning walk around Dunmow…that’s not always a disadvantage. When you have a lot of cloud cover a brief break in that cloud cover can give quite a nice look to your photographs, as it did today.


It’s been a cold and very foggy day today in Dunmow…at least where I live. If you walked up to the High Street you got above the fog and it was a clear blue sky…still very cold though.


The forecast suggested that we might have a rather nice sunset this evening so I packed up my kit and headed over to Thaxted and an area of the edge of the town that has recently been cleared of a lot of hedges opening up the view of the church and windmill…Issues I had

And yes, I know the horizon is smack bang in the middle, thank you for noticing 😉


On my morning walk around Dunmow I regularly walk past this view…the sky certainly caught my eye today. Despite being an hour past sunrise there was still some nice light around.


There has been a unifying theme to many of the images I have taken this week – lines – as part of a course I’m doing – this represents curved lines – I’d actually spotted this shot a few days ago but couldn’t take it because of the poor weather – today – with plenty of sunshine I captured the shot just as I wanted to. Pretty much everything is curved here – OK – the telegraph poles aren’t, the the lines between them are.


I took a walk around Little Easton this afternoon, or at least the countryside that surrounds Little Easton. This field has the River Chelmer flowing on the right hand side, but it was the sky that I knew I had to capture…I do love skies like this.
