Photo Shoot: A Walk in the Park

Updated: Jun 20

“There is only you and your camera. The limitations in your photography are in yourself, for what we see is what we are.” Photographer Ernst Haas (1921 – 1986).


I took my camera out on a late December afternoon, away from the madness of the post Christmas sales. There appeared to be nothing worth shooting; no glorious sunset, no fabulous rainbow, no amazing light turning an ordinary scene into something extraordinary. But I wanted to get some shots. These are some of the results.













Trees in Winter


I love to see in winter

Bare branches held up high

In lovely, lacy patterns

Against a cloudy sky.


I learned this poem in primary school and it comes to mind whenever I take a winter walk and see the trees stretching their branches to the sky.
