At long last the Jet Stream has moved north allowing High Pressure to build over Western Europe including the UK. Finally, the rain has stopped and we have settled dry weather with blue skies and soaring temperatures – 20C yesterday in places. Spring is about to explode. We are happy!
We’ve been away for the weekend. But the day before, I went on my first walk for some time in Campbell Park. The ground in the park undulates and with the sun behind me I reached a point where the land in front fell away before rising again. I stared ahead and saw my shadow beside a tree – it was exactly as you see it in the first image.
There was no need to move, the image was complete. Except I looked a little wooden. So I tried a few poses, trying to operate a dSLR while doing so. Not easy, and if anyone was looking they must have wondered what the heck I was doing. Suffice it to say that I was useless at posing with the exception of the one that follows, where it appears I might have a rucsac on my back, or a spinal deformity (I don’t).
