Vertiginous

This is my contribution to Debbie’s One Word Sunday prompt Vertiginous.

I had a couple of ideas for the prompt before remembering this photo. Taken approximately 30 years ago, I’m looking over a sandstone escarpment down on the Cheshire plain below. The slope is so steep it used to form the defensive edge of an Iron Age hill fort.

Throwback Thursday

Early snow on southern Cheshire

Throwback Thursday travels back to southern Cheshire and an autumn in the early 1990s.

An early snowfall had partially covered the landscape with the autumn leaves of the Silver Birch trees standing out against the snow.

A Solitary Conifer

Throwback Thursday travels back to Bickerton Hill in southern Cheshire, England in the mid 1990s.

I noticed the tall, blue green conifer sticking out of the surrounding Silver Birch trees and isolated it with a telephoto lens.

Looking Down on Silver Birch trees in snow from the top of Bickerton Hill in southern Cheshire, England. I was isolating interesting sections of the trees with a telephoto lens.

Monochrome Monday: 13th April 2020

Monochrome Monday travels back to southern Cheshire in the mid 1980s and some experiments with black and white infrared film. Another test of copying black and white negatives.

These are Silver Birch trees and Bracken growing on a section of Maiden Castle, an Iron Age hill fort on top of Bickerton Hill in southern Cheshire, England.

Silver Birch Trees in Snow

Throwback Thursday travels back to Cheshire, England in the mid 1990s.

More specifically, Bickerton Hill, Cheshire after a snowfall. In this photo I am looking down onto Silver Birch trees at the base of a section of the hill.
