Blue Forest⁠
------------⁠

Now the woods sleep,⁠
Dreaming secret dreams,⁠
Before a sweet awakening.⁠


A turning point between turning points, mid-way between the solstice and equinox. We can slowly come out of our winter slumbers and direct our energies to new beginnings. But those dark nights still beguile.⁠

Hidden Moon⁠
--------------⁠

Though hidden sometimes⁠
Cloaked in clouded darkness⁠
A light still shines.⁠


The first full moon of the year is apparently called a Wolf Moon, apparently named after the howling of hungry wolves lamenting the scarcity of food in midwinter.⁠
Last nights moon was hidden behind the clouds so not visible where I was, but still shining whether I could see it or not.
In dark days it can be hard to imagine the return of the light, but the light is there - waiting for the clouds to clear.

Winds of change⁠

Shed the skin of 2022, shake out your hair and welcome 2023.⁠

Happy New Year! ⁠

Solstice sunset⁠
---------------⁠

A surrendering sun sinks ⁠
To dance in the darkness⁠
Before rising again.⁠

Depth of field⁠
-------------⁠

Depth is hard to judge⁠
When shadows are hidden⁠
By sparkling surfaces.

Baby its cold outside⁠

Frosty⁠
------⁠

Frost freezes fingers⁠
But warms the heart.⁠

Trees in the city⁠
---------------⁠

Urban textures and nature collide.⁠

Mellow⁠

Feeling a little more mellow after two weeks of frantic activity at the Abstract Rhythm and Blue Notes exhibition in Whitstable.⁠

Even the rain is joyful⁠
---------------------⁠

When friendship fills your heart⁠
Even the rain ⁠
Is joyful⁠


A joyous few days in Whitstable for the opening of our Abstract Rhythm and Blue notes exhibition (@arbn_exhibition) at the Horsebridge Arts Centre. @thehorsebridge

This exhibition is the culmination of a year long inspirational artist development programme with Doug Chinnery (@doug_chinnery) and Valda Bailey (@valdab), which was conducted over Zoom during the pandemic and involved artists from around the globe.⁠

Coming together to hang the exhibition was the first time many of us had met each other in person - an emotional and very special time for us all.⁠

I was also staying with an old friend from University days (@deesphotographykent) so extra special.⁠

The weather was atrocious - but somehow it didn't matter.⁠

Heading back there for next weekend - the exhibition is on until 28th November. ⁠

In the dark days of winter⁠
Sunshine has to come⁠
From inside⁠
