Watching nature take its course, from the top of a hill in northern England

Depth of Colour



Bracken, in autumn hue.

I saw in the press that the following photo, by Jooney Woodward has been awarded  the Taylor Wessing photographic portrait prize.

I love it, love it, love it. It’s simply gorgeous.


That glorious hair colour is swishing around in my families gene pool ( perhaps I’m descended from a long line of guinea pigs)  sadly none came my way, shame. I’m told my maternal grandmother had similar hair and my great niece certainly does, she flicks and swishes it to great effect.

Jooney Woodward’s web site is here

Watching the rhythm of rural life, from the top of a hill in northern England. Having spent most of my life avoiding writing, I now need to do it! I am no domestic goddess, but if I were expecting visitors to my home, I would whisk round with the duster and plump up the cushions and generally make the place look presentable. I hope that by putting my words where others may see them it will encourage me to ‘tidy up and push the Hoover around’ my writing. On the other hand I may just be adding to the compost heap. Only time will tell! Pull up a chair, sit yourself down, I’ll put the kettle on.

  1. Thanks for the link. I really enjoyed looking at Jooney Woodward’s website. I especially liked the composition of the shots – the symmetry and all the diagonals.

  2. My eldest girl has hair about that colour – and she hated it when she was younger. Now, she likes the fact that it’s a bit ‘different’. Mine is similar, but no longer provided by nature, sadly.

Come on, join in.
