Winter trees reflected

Winter trees reflected

I was born in Oxford and often go back there. This was taken on a winter’s afternoon at Iffley Lock. The river was very still and so, with no need for a long exposure I was able to get the trees reflecting in thew water with a glimpse of the sun behind.

Iced lake

Iced lake

My other work for a EU project takes me to different places. We held a session in a place called Pushcha, which is not far from Kyiv. It was the end of March and still snow around. On a walk near the complex we were staying, I came across this lake still with thick ice. This view I like, with one tree falling towards the ice.

This is a composite of two photos. The main photo was taken but with a dull sky, so i added in a sunset type of sky to provide some drama. Th whole effect is to provide a highly contrasty scene.

This was taken on a rainy late afternoon in Western Georgia at Tkibuli Lake. I like the drama in the sky the rough water on the main part of the lake, contrasting with a seeming serenity in the foreground

An Oxford scene

This shot was taken in the University Parks in Oxford, part of the university. It was taken late in the day, and the water in the pond was very still, helping to give reflections from the golden trees
