Come Rain or Shine
Greetings One and All,
You’ll have to forgive the lack of blogging these past few weeks… The end of my final year at College is slowing creeping up on me. Well that’s a lie! It’s hardly creeping but more so charging at me, in full speed! My life recently has been a whirlwind of homework, early mornings and coursework deadlines, but the end is in sight!! I’ve almost completed a four year haul through College, to be honest I’m looking forward to seeing the back of it (secretly I think they want me out of there too, I mean four years- really?!) but between you and me, I think i’ll miss it!
So I’ve been thinking about this particular blog post for a while, a few weeks ago I went out for a walk along the beach to see the damage that the recent UK storms have done to our beloved coastline! Then as if by jetstream magic, the UK last week, was hit with sunshine- actual rays of sunlight being beamed from the skies! I was beginning to forget what sunshine actually looked like! It was great! People eating ice creams, (England + March sunshine = MR WHIPPY FLAKE 99’s ALL ROUND), families out walking the dogs along the beach and maybe the odd person or two in… shorts!! Okay, I think that’s taking it a little too far, but each to their own!
It was fabulous, and most definitely brought England out of it’s chronic, long haul suffering of S.A.D (Seasonal Affective Disorder). I certainly felt my mood heighten once I got out in the sunshine!
Photography wise, expect a mash-up of the two seasons: Winter + Spring. We’re dipping our toes into Spring now, yet I don’t think the weather is somewhat ready to fully change just yet, into the Spring-like weather that we know and love!
My local beach in the South East was magnificent to look at, just the sheer impact that the sea and weather has had on the coastline is incredible! The force of the sea has had such an effect on one part of the beach, at Splash Point, that the Council have had to lock it up to protect the safety of the public! Never though I’d see the beach locked behind bars!!It’s such a shame as Splash Point just so happens to be my favourite part of the local beach!
What remains behind the locked gates…
From one extreme to the other! From drab and dreary Winter comes bright, colorful and sunny Spring-time pleasure!
I don’t know about you, but I really cannot help but smile when I see photographs of bright and beautiful Spring flowers, such asDaffodils. It instantly takes me back to when I was little, and I’d pop into the garden and pick a bouquet of Daffodils for my mum and place them in the center of the table, in a vase as a little handmade centrepiece. It’s the little things like that, which make me smile the most!
I very much hope this is the beginning of things to come. Winter has dragged on for far too long now (I blame the stormy weather), it’s time to relinquish that drearyness and welcome in the Springtime vibes!
