Photos from inside a lockdown 3 – Part 6

Photos from my life during the third lockdown – Part 6

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

Winter was still gripping the country for most of the past week, and my wanderings in the woods on my daily dog walk explored that further.

We’ve had the last of the snow, and possibly the last of the snow for this winter – that we’ll just have to see. In the meantime, the cloudy skies that brought the snow cleared for a while to bring us some lemon-yellow sunsets.

This past week I found myself really noticing the way the lingering dustings of snow helped to pick out the yellows and greens of the woodland floor – dried leaves, fallen trees and the coming growth of spring. I’ve also continued to experiment with beneath and above, my latest investigation of my place through photography.

As I write this the weather has finally warmed up again – well beyond the average for this time of year. The snow and frost are gone, and the dogs need to be rinsed with the hose and dried before coming inside. 

I do miss the snow, but let’s hope now for a green and growing spring.

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.
