Isolation walk 2020

As the C19 pandemic gains more repeated footholds around the world, here in my hometown of Oldham we have just been advised that as being in the top five worse places for new cases in the UK, we should take extra precautions again. This view encompasses one of our three ‘isolation walks’ along the old railway, now a linear park.

The two Pips show, what I consider two more interesting views of the same bridge taken some time ago now, also here in Ipernity. Click on the pictures to be taken to the originals.

I love this kind of shot Herb. The first PiP, with the strong shadows is superb and the misty shot is gorgeous. The dappled sunlight in the main shot is very appealing. Three very successful pictures! Cheers, Rosa.

Thanks for your visit Rosa. Delighted to know that you have enjoyed these shots, all taken 15-20 minutes walk from my house. Light of course is the key.

Cheers. Herb

Beautifully composed, Herb. I'd agree about the PiPs, the low level lighting makes the first, while the weather adds mystery to the second. Still, this is an image I'd be happy to have taken. Stay safe.

Great framing, beautiful light and lovely dappled shadows............very nicely done Herb.

I really like the image in the first PiP - it's a wonderful study in light and shadow. Just fantastic!

I saw the other image back in November and commented at the time, but it's always nice to have a second look.

Such a shame to hear that you are having to go back to taking extra precautions against Covid-19, I'm afraid we'll probably all get a taste of that at some time in the not-to-distant future. There seem to be a lot of people who are still not wearing face coverings in shops when they should and for some of them social distancing seems to be a thing of the past.

You take care and stay safe my friend.
