Greetings Card 7#20

Mar 10, 2021 | Greetings Cards - 'Every Picture Tells a Story'

Day 7#20 Well not only a change of continent, a change of subject matter and most definitely a change of climate! From the gorgeous sunshine of South America to the misty morning sunrise in deepest, darkest Dorset! My main focus since I retired has been raising funds to build the Emily Collins School in Uganda, hence my photography. It is almost a full time role and somedays it necessitates getting up early and getting out and about looking for photo opportunities. Just before this latest lockdown, I headed down to the River Stour, here in East Dorset, early one morning to meet up with a couple of friends. The aim was to walk along the river bank to try to get some photos of the otters or kingfishers when I was confronted with this fantastic scene an hour or so after sunrise. The mist was still quite dense over the meadows, the sky was cloudless and the sun was just creeping through the trees. Oh yes and it was very cold. I was travelling light so this was taken with a long lens which, although it was the only lens I had with me, worked well in this instance because it foreshortened the depth of field and added the the atmosphere. I’m really not a landscape photographer but I liked this image so I hope you do too. The greeting cards are available in assorted packs of ten, but if you order two packs you will get all 20 images …
