Almost A Black and White Sunday

No editing required. This image was taken on 6th January 2010 in Haslemere on the Surrey/West Sussex/Hampshire county borders. Not a place known for snow other than half a dozen flakes that barely settle on the ground, The lady in the red coat was a such a pop of colour on this monochromatic day.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

        1. We did a sprint/walk round the wildfowl park for a breath of very fresh air (and to pursue some yarn bombing 🙂 ) this afternoon. Kettle on pretty swiftly when we got back.

    1. I actually did buy a red jacket! I always seemed to get someone wearing a red jacket in all my landscape photos so I thought I would do the same 😊

  1. Such a splendid photo Jude, and all the better for having just happened without help. You achieved a photographer’s dream – right place at exactly the right time!

    1. We were pretty frozen by then Meg. We had gone down to the duck pond to get some interesting photos when this lady walked by.

  2. Love this! I could really do with some cooler weather here. It’s the middle of the night and I’m blogging because it’s too hot to sleep and I can open all the windows in my office to capture the breeze.

    1. I was kept awake until the early hours of the morning because of the rain and wind again! Is yours a humid heat? I can’t bear heat + humidity.

        1. My son in Perth said they were expecting 2 days worth of rain in two hours – the temp was around 36 degrees and the sky a very strange colour. Though as he said, two days worth of rain is nothing like we get here!

        2. Oh no. I guess Perth gets a fair few tropical cyclones?
          We’ve had quite a bit of that sort of weather in the last few years. “Flash flooding” has become an all-too common term.
