In response to WordPress Daily Photo challenge Path
Joy and I went out for the traditional christmas day amble in the fields and lanes near where we live in Cheshire.
Since I started photography I’ve been used to colourful winters. I’ve spent all of them in the pennines, either in the Yorkshire Dales or Calderdale. Even when the trees are bare there’s a lot of colour around, in the heather, the bracken, the gritstone, the fallen leaves. Now I’ve moved to Cheshire and it’s all shades of grey. Hence why all my recent shots have been in black and white. I think I’ve never shot so much black and white. I’m enjoying it, though I’d love to get out into the mountains for a sunset again (any day now, I keep promising). Here’s a couple more moody monochromes.
A dark and moody morning for my first photo-shoot in our new home, Lymm in Cheshire. The setting is Lymm dam and St. Mary’s Church.
