Out in the Ironstone country again. Last night I was comparing the images I made this time last year for this project and those I made yesterday and I think that there is one significant difference. Last year the images were much more muted in their colours and pallet in general. This year so far it has been and explosion of colour. There are a number of reason why this might be the case but I suspect the main driver is a reaction to what has been so far a pretty miserable winter. We haven’t had that much snow thank goodness but there seems to have been day after day of grey dampness that made whole weeks merge into one. Also this winter the cold and flu season seems to have been worse than most which has caused problems all of their own. The upshot has been that I have only felt upto to going out when the sun has shone and hence bright images.
