  • "No sun - no moon! No morn - no noon ..."

    As if you don't have enough of your own in the UK right now!
    During July (winter Downunder) I was reminded of Thomas Hood's immortal poem -

    No sun - no moon!
    No morn - no noon -
    No dawn - no dusk - no proper time of day.
    No warmth, no cheerfulness, no healthful ease,
    No comfortable feel in any member -
    No shade, no shine, no butterflies, no bees,
    No fruits, no flowers, no leaves, no birds! -
    November!





    I relocated to North Eastern Victoria, 500 Miles from Tasmania.
    The landscape is different and so far from the sea, the winter is colder.
    It takes fortitude to brave the cold for photography's sake, but someone must do it ...

      I like the first shot, it was worth the cold!

        Thanks Dave and Barrie.

        Yes, it was worth dragging myself out out bed.

          The top one is excellent: atmospheric and stark

            The first is very evocative and atmospheric, the second very well seen. Both perfectly compliment that beautiful poem of which I was not aware, thanks for introducing me to it.

              Thanks there, Keith and John.

              I did not regret dragging myself out of a cosy bed to get them.

              With a succession of 38'C days as we sweat through summer I'll be glad when Autumn and Winter come. That's when I become most photographically active.

              All we can do at present is shut ourselves up inside and watch movies until the heat passes.
