It is now April 2020 and spring has started over one week ago. I know it is cold and cloudy but the Sun will come out tomorrow. This post will display the images that I captured during the autumn and winter period November through to March. October looked too much like summer so I left it out.
Autumn arrived, the leaves changed colour, the rain came with strong winds and the leaves carpeted the ground.
The evergreen plants looked quite stunning amongst the scattering of brown leaves. After looking at this for a few weeks I decided that it was time to rake it up.
Whilst travelling through the park you could see the bare trees resting for the longer nights throughout autumn and winter.
The cloudy skies made beautiful backdrops for the bare trees in February.
February was not that cold, just rain and wind so the flowers started making an appearance from the middle week of February.
The image above was captured on the 29th February.
The image above was captured on the 31st March.
The above was a summary of autumn leading into winter. The images that follow will examine images captured during the many faces of autumn winter.
In my last post The Moon I suggested capturing images of the moon whilst staying at home due to the COVID19 pandemic. Guess what? I could not find the moon in the sky from my living room window. I have no responsibility for the movement of the moon.
Since the 27th March the moon and Venus has both been seen in the sky again. Capture the images whenever it is not cloudy.
At the end of November the Christmas trees were on sale.
From Christmas Day onwards I captured the above images which represented the Christmas Season.
The fog made an appearance on several occasions. It made quite interesting images.
The hints of colour in the fog images are quite important to confirm that the images are not monochrome.
The images above show the fog at 8 a.m. in the morning and my re-visit to the same locations in the afternoon.
The third week in January introduced extremely lovely images of the frost. This was a chance to zoom in to see the details of the frost.
November to February introduced a lot of rain. People in other parts of England saw floods.
Tottenham, London did not experience floods but there were a few pools of water that could be used to capture images.
The four images above was an attempt to freeze the rain in the images. From November to February the rain came down heavy in short bursts.
On the 27th February at 8:43 a.m. it finally snowed. The snow did not settle and only lasted for five minutes. In 2019 the situation was different. It snowed for the night and was gone in the morning.
The above image indicates that strong winds were hitting England. Some places had to close to protect the public and trees were damaged or caused damage to property.
Branches were broken from trees. A plane made a record breaking speed from North America to England because it was assisted by the wind.
It was Monday, 23rd March at 6:15 p.m. and I saw a beautiful sunset whilst on the street. It was to be the last one that I could take whilst moving around freely. Due to the COVID19 pandemic England was on lockdown. Stay at home!
For the close of the month of March my remaining sunset images were captured from my living room window.
From the safety of your home you can capture a sunset or a sunrise. Remember the rule for images of the Sun. DO NOT LOOK DIRECTLY AT THE SUN THROUGH A CAMERA LENS. If the day is not cloudy you should not have any problems capturing a good Sun image. Sunsets are images with interesting light effects. Welcome to spring.
