Capturing the Light

I am sorry, dear readers, to have kept you so long. I know it has been a year since you last heard of me.

Last winter, as can happen, I just suddenly ran out of things to say. I felt I had said everything I wanted to say about my M.E. (lets face it, there are only so many things you can say about it) and I wasn’t taking that many photos as I was busy with other things.

As spring and summer arrived, I felt my energy levels picking up and suddenly I was feeling much better than I have been for a few years now, not completely healthy and “normal”,  but nevertheless able to do all kinds of things in the garden and the greenhouse, not to mention all those crafty things I have been writing about in my other blog.

But as autumn, my favourite photography season, started, I found myself reaching for my camera again and this time I was photographing things that had nothing to do with wool, dye plants, fabrics or knitting. And so I started thinking it would be nice to show you some of these pictures again.

Today, to celebrate the gloriously sunny late autumn day we’ve been having, I spent an enjoyable hour in the garden photographing everything falling under the last glowing rays of the sun. I particularly loved the golden light as it shone through the amber coloured leaves of our cherry tree.

It reminded me, if any reminder was needed, that when photographing, we really are capturing the light.
