Travel theme: Illuminated

It is winter, I don’t travel far.  A low sun lit up the field outside our front door and I padded outside, still in dressing gown and slippers, to take yet more photographs of the two trees. Too cold for hanging about, I was soon inside again and then noticed this familiar face illuminated by a low winter sun.  It is a clay planter which probably arrived in the UK aboard a container ship along with five hundred of her friends, nevertheless, she has a certain sad beauty despite her mass-produced beginnings:

    Beautiful Robin. Gorgeous light and the sculpture, despite being made of stone looks so sweet and warm.

        Oops. I meant to post this last comment (“It’s all good”) under what you wrote on my blog. :-O

    You are right Robin, it is beautiful in its own way.🍀

      Sometime surprising what turns up at the local garden centre – to be honest I can’t remember where she came from, she has been living in the porch for years.

    Beautiful and tender….I love the low angle of the light, it makes it feel very intimate

    nice work, Robin. Lovely light.

    • northumbrianlight · January 12, 2014

      Thanks Graham – very fleeting and unusually I was there to catch it.
