Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections

We went on yet another lovely walk around Clumber Park in Nottinghamshire this weekend, amidst the intermittent rain and hail showers, interspersed with sunshine. Swans always offer great photo opportunities for impressive yet painterly reflections in the water.

I love this place. We just take the dog and ourselves, no mobile phones, just the camera and waterproof clothing… I love seeing the bright blue sky reflected in the water.

This one is from the same place last year…with my dog in the bottom of the picture making ripples.

'Printmaker Nancy Power's work reflects the life around her. Be it a changing rural landscape, the decaying plants in her garden, or her collection of hand crafted ceramics, she finds inspiration from many sources. Deliberately eclectic in subject matter, her work is harmonised by her colour palette and distinctive inking process. Nancy uses the reduction method of lino printmaking; carving away at just one block for each consecutive colour to reveal the final image. By inking from dark to light, as opposed to the more traditional light to dark, Nancy's work has engaging depth and colour layering.'

    1. Thank you Karen! It was a lovely day and it is so nice that us ‘peasants’ can walk around these grand old estates, instead of working in their kitchens!! Maybe that is something to ‘reflect’ on – hurrah for social progress!!!
