Past Squares #21

July Squares: Strange Perspective on Shadows

Strange Perspective on Shadows

Trees and their shadows on farmland at Bickerton Hill in southern Cheshire, England. Normally cropped to a panoramic format rather than a square.

A look back at some of my personal favorite square photos from previous months of squares. Some were popular, some not so popular at the time.

This was a post in Perspective Squares Month and is my day 21 contribution to Becky’s October Squares on the theme of Past Squares.

Autumn Colour On The Hillside

Autumn colour on Bickerton Hill in southern Cheshire, England. The hill is the southern end of a sandstone ridge sticking out of the Cheshire plain.

On a clear day you can see central Liverpool. The group of Silver Birch trees on top of the hill are on the site of an Iron Age hill fort known as Maiden Castle.

A photo from my archives, originally it was going to be a Throwback Thursday post. Instead it is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge: Hillside.

Past Squares #15

Light on the tops of Silver Birch trees

Sunlight on the Tree Tops

Low sun illuminating the tops of Silver Birch trees on Bickerton Hill in southern Cheshire, England. I like the gradation of light to dark down the frame.

A look back at some of my personal favorite square photos from previous months of squares. Some were popular, some not so popular at the time.

Fly Agaric

Flora and Fauna Friday: Fly Agaric

My Flora and Fauna Friday post this week is the Fly Agaric fungi (Amanita muscaria).

These two specimens were photographed on Bickerton Hill in southern Cheshire, England in autumn.

Taken shortly after sunrise in warm light. Unfortunately the slugs and snails had been eating them overnight so I tried to compose the photos to hide as much of the damage as possible.

The Start of Autumn Colour

Throwback Thursday: 30th September 2021

My Throwback Thursday post this week is traveling back to south Cheshire in the early 1990s. The start of autumn colour on Bickerton Hill in southern Cheshire, England.

I was on one of the highest parts of the hill looking down on the trees below and isolating interesting sections of colour with a telephoto lens.
