Pictures Of The Floating World

Pictures Of The Floating World

The name of a famous school of Japanese art .. this week it could describe how it feels to be surrounded by floods almost everywhere I point the camera. This first shot is by Paul Thompson – taken with a long exposure, and part of a series from his project Moonlighting. Ive shown part of it here as this shot was taken from ‘our’ part of the Solway Firth looking across to the Lake District.

Below – I caught a flooded field near Glenluce in late, low, winter sun.

Deluges from sky and mountain have caused even flat lands to be flooded. One of the few bonuses being that even the smallest shaft of light is reflected.

Light is refracted through water in the air to create strange shapes – which no doubt would have been seen as portents of good or evil in times past.

Already nature is providing some unusual opportunities..and I’m filled with optimism and excitement. No doubt my recent holiday has helped. The year ahead is a blank canvas.. which is a good basis for an artist to work on.

So much to look forward to this year. Can’t wait.

Thankfully, I don’t have to. It’s already here.
