LEAF

Yellow and green autumn leaf on tarmac with woodlouse and nut

See also the woodlouse? And the nut? Does anyone know what kind of tree the leaf has fallen from? Does the nut belong to the tree?

NASTURTIUM THROUGH WALL

Yellow nasturtium growing through black stone wall

These blackened stone walls felt dark and overwhelming when I first moved here - I'm beginning to love them now. Familiarity brings delight because what is alien gradually becomes home.

DRIP BOX (2)

Drip box cover and nettle with other plants and mosses on a narrow stone path

Adjusted to make it look as if the day and the place were clearer and brighter than they really were.

Putting more than one version of the drip box photograph on the blog may be a mistake but it's a record of the way I am currently struggling with light around my new home. In making this picture crisper in detail than when it first came out of the camera I have sadly made it flat and dull.

Hopefully the time will come when I laugh at myself and find it easy.

On the other hand, trying to take photographs of interesting things in dark corners between high walls on damp days may be the real issue!

What's a 'drip box'? (This isn't a quiz. I don't know what a drip box is or what it's for.)

THE DAY THE SUN TURNED RED - 4 - THE SUN

The sun on 16th October 2017, with clouds of Saharan and Iberian dust and telephone wire.

On 16th October 2017, dust from the Sahara, Portugal and Spain obscured the sun enough that we could look straight at it with our naked eyes. (No filter.)

THE DAY THE SUN TURNED RED - 3 - LEAVES

Fallen autumn leaves given extra gold on the day the sun turned red.

On October 16th 2017 dust from the Sahara and debris from wild fires in Portugal and Spain were brought in on the skirts of hurricane / storm Ophelia. The sun turned red and leaves - which were already golden - were given an extra glow in the uncanny light.
