Photos from inside a lockdown 2.0 – Part 3



Photos from my life during the second lockdown – Part 3

England has joined Wales and Scotland in tighter restrictions on work and movement, our second lockdown, to help save lives and reduce the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the NHS. There may be more lockdowns before the vaccine(s) can be given to everyone. In the meantime I’m spending my time at home with some work and recording some of my life: Photos from inside a Lockdown 2.0. This is Part 3. (View Part 1, & Part 2 – View the first Photos from Inside a Lockdown from spring 2020.)

Once again light is the strong theme in today’s Photos from Inside A Lockdown. Last week I mentioned light, and with the sun setting even earlier now, most of my afternoon walk with my dogs is spent in wonderful sunset light. The woods can seem to glow at times, and the orchard still has some bright yellow leaves, for now at least.

I noticed a few years ago that near sunset, and only for a short few minutes, there’s a green tint to the setting sun light, and I now always look for it and try to capture it, if I can. (ps – if you’re seeing images that are fairly purple tinged, try using another web browser, such as Firefox, as Google Chrome has terrible colour calibration and adds purple to images – see my blog about colour accuracy in web browsers)

Once again my dogs are a vital part of this series. Though unseen in these photos they’re there, beside me – waiting patiently while I compose an image. They can make a stressful day better.

I’ll be continuing to explore with photographs what I see during this lockdown. Stay home and stay safe, everyone. We can help each other get through this.
