Looking towards central London from the edge of Wanstead Flats, Leytonstone, East London…really pleased at achieving such a lovely silhouette with my phone camera.
It’s actually taken in colour, but appears almost monochrome, thanks to the steadily-greying skies… 🙂
Winter frosts can bring such a stark monochrome simplicity to our favourite landscapes, but today I found the added atmospheric effect of this morning’s freezing fog softening, smudging and blurring the already muted tonal range even further brought a whole new level of graceful understated elegance to my early morning walk… ❤

I went out for a relatively early wintery walk this morning, to try to capture the beautiful frosty views on Wanstead Flats, East London, close to where we live… ❤
I love the way the two tower blocks on the edge of the flats give a bit of an urban context to the landscape – we are in East London, after all! 🙂
The very end of November, and it’s not this time of year without the first real winter frost here in London 🙂

Firework photography can be so beautifully unpredictably creatively chaotic – you can never really know when you click the shutter button exactly what you might end up with 🙂

I love the ripe richness of autumn, even here in a city there are plenty of signs of the passing seasons – all you need to know is where to look 🙂

Some peaceful images from yesterday afternoon’s walk for Cee’s Which Way Challenge this week 🙂
In spite of being more of a country girl than a city woman, I’ve lived in London for the last fifteen years! But I’ve found walking quietly in nature always offers me much-needed sanctuary from the manic full-on-ness of busy city life.
We live right on the edge of Wanstead Flats and Bush Wood, at the lowest end of the ancient woodlands of Epping Forest, so thankfully always have access to our own little haven of natural calm whatever the time of day 🙂
Daily Prompt: Sanctuary
Two different images of the same open space on Wanstead Flats here in East London, taken at two different times of year – one showing the Circus in town, one showing the Travelling Fair.
Although it’s always lovely to have close-up shots highlighting lots of detail in specific aspects of a scene, I also like what I consider to be context shots of the subject as a whole, deliberately taken at a distance, to add to the storytelling ability of photographs in sharing a particular experience with others 🙂
