‘Tis the Seasons

Invariably I shoot photos from the same scene in colour as well as black and white – it may be considered as vacillating but I like to see what moods evolve. With digital it hardly matters yet I much prefer to choose the mode on taking the shot rather than converting it afterwards.

Winter on the Thames

Spring in Kew Gardens

Summer in Orford

Thy flowering Spring,
thy Summer’s ardent strength,

Autumn in the New Forest

Thy sober Autumn fading into age,
And pale concluding Winter comes at last
And shuts the scene.

from The Seasons: Winter

On the 21st December we officially begin winter again here and so the cycle that is so predictably reassuring takes another turn – as I’m linking up with Tina and her Seasonal challenge as this week’s Lens Artists.
