Photos from inside a lockdown 3 – Part 2

Photos from my life during the third lockdown – Part 2

The third lockdown in England, to help save lives and reduce the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the NHS, began in early January. It’s a feeling we now know well, but the importance of which has only grown. I’m spending my time at home with work, fine art photography and recording some of my life: Photos from inside a Lockdown 3. This is Part 2. (View all of the Photos from Inside a Lockdown blogs)

This series is a way for me to capture some of the things around me that I find beautiful, and hopefully it can inspire those who read it and look at the photos to see the beauty that’s still there in their own lives.

This week I start with one last photo from the recent frosty weather we had, before the rain came back. We’re now in the middle of a typical British winter – dark, wet, windy and not really all that cold.

As I’m writing this, we have a serious winter storm that’s bringing potentially damaging amounts of rain to some parts of the country. I hope everyone in those affected places can stay safe. 

For the rest of us it’s pretty much just wet and now we have mud. Lots and lots of mud. Walking the dogs is a squelchy and slippery thing to do, but there’s still lots of beauty. Today I’ve decided to highlight my dogs here, instead of just saying that they were with me. They’re such very good dogs, and are my good friends.

We don’t know how long this lockdown will need to last, but it’s for the benefit of everyone that we all follow the rules and keep each other safe. A few more months and we can come out of this better together, and build anew, for everyone. Stay safe.
