The Haywain

The Haywain

I visited Flatford Mill recently in Suffolk and stood on the spot where John Constable painted The Haywain.  Its changed a little since he was there but here is my photograph taken where he stood.  Elements still remain, and of course it still looks as beautiful today as it was back then.

Aldeburgh, Suffolk coast

Its nice to discover new places.  And new parts of the coast.  I love the coast, love the sea, love the blue of the sky in summertime.  Love being an island.  Love that I could, if I wanted to, walk all around this country and see nothing but beautiful water.   (and yes, that is a sneaky little colour photo that somehow crept in)

A Long and Arduous Road

The road to enlightenment is a very difficult one.  Sometimes it can be a case of one step forward, and two steps back.  But even though the road is often strewn with obstacles we must keep on, because one day the road will become easier to walk along.

When things go wrong I often dwell on the negatives.  But I see it as a test.   If I can get past the negatives then the spirit will grow stronger and next time the negatives won’t seem as bad.

This series of photographs is developing into something very special.  Not only do I love the images and what they represent but going out into nature and taking them is allowing me to get closer to nature.  And it is through nature that I believe my path takes me.  Maybe its a two way street.  I seek enlightenment so I go out into nature to take photographs and by doing so I discover something about myself which enables me to move forward on that path.

I experiment with a lot of different photography, sometimes some of what I do falls by the wayside.  But I am always drawn to nature.  Nature is my saviour.
