Square​ Sky – Altogether

Looking at the sky has become a morning ritual this month – a kind of mindfulness. The first thing I do when I wake up is look at the sky. At this stage of the month (the last week), I am looking for different viewpoints, frames and cloud formations.

The Lennon Wall in Prague is a constantly changing piece of multicoloured art. If you go two days in a row, it will be completely different from the day before.

I've done another week. Looking at the sky has become a morning ritual this month - a kind of mindfulness. The first thing I do when I wake up is look at the sky.  At this stage of the month, I am looking for different viewpoints, frames and cloud formations.

Not only has my photography improved but I am beginning to develop a style … Continue reading Where to find inspiration…

Of course, I had my camera to capture it. I live on a hill that overlooks the town and have taken a ton of photographs with the tag ‘view from my lounge’. I am so fortunate to have a stunning view which changes … Continue reading Anatomy of a thunderstorm
