Photos from inside a lockdown 3 – Part 5

Photos from my life during the third lockdown – Part 5

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 5. (View all of the Photos from Inside a Lockdown blogs)

From mud to mist to frost and another dusting of snow.

This week, once again, my inspiration has come from the countryside around Ledbury. It’s been a wet and muddy few days that, thankfully, turned into proper winter – frost and a little snow, though I’m envious of those in the rest of the country who got actual snow for a few days.

I’ve also started a new observation – beneath and above. There’s an example here of the red clay mud beneath my feet on a footpath in a meadow I was walking my dogs through, and the mackerel clouds above my head, tinged with the yellow of approaching sunset. I’ll be examining my place more in the future with beneath and above.

And finally the woods with their glazing of snow, highlighting branches, fallen trees and last year’s brittle leaves on the forest floor.

Enjoy winter.

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.
