Three views of the great outdoors taken here in Wanstead Flats, Leytonstone, East London – even in a big city like London, we still have our own little oasis of open space to let us spend time in nature 🙂

Weekly Photo Challenge: Sequences

A Scottish sunrise in sequence, taken from various points around my mum and dad’s back garden one really cold but beautiful winter’s morning in mid-December 2018 ❤

The great benefit of winter sunrises is that you don’t have to be up at the crack of dawn to capture them – these were all taken over 15 minutes between 9.10 and 9.25am! 🙂

Winter Woodland Walk

Much as I love walking in the woods and the parks here in London, there’s something magical to me about tramping through the Highland woodlands of Scotland in winter that makes me feel I’m home again… ❤

Sunrise from the overnight train…

I very recently travelled overnight from Inverness to London on the Caledonian Sleeper, sitting up all night in the seated coach rather than splashing out on the relative luxury of a bunk-bed in a compact cabin, so I happened to be awake early to see the sun rise over the English countryside.

It’s surprisingly difficult to take a non-blurry image through the double-glazed windows of a moving train rattling down the tracks in the dim early morning light with nothing more than a decidedly mediocre phone camera, all the while avoiding power lines and poles and other such trackside objects obscuring the view.

I’m just happy at having a reasonably straight horizon and not too much glare and flare 🙂
