Dawn at Newenden   6 comments

After what seems like weeks of murky weather the sun finally made an appearance. It had to burn through the mist dwelling in the valley where the River Rother passes through Newenden, but of course that creates a beautiful sunrise.

Whilst looking for photo opportunities on the river bank a man with two labradors, one brown and one black emerged from the mist. The dogs said hello and muddied my jeans then disappeared with their owner into the mist. Some time passed, and shrouded in the mist I felt quite alone. Sound travels well in the mist however and I heard two spashes, clearly the dogs had leapt into the river. Then I heard the owner:

(In an assertive voice) “Ben! Ben!, get here. Ben! Get here now. Good boy”

“Bill!, Bill!, Bill!, get over here. Bill! BILL! BILL! COME ‘ERE!”

(In an angry voice) “BILL!, BILL! Right, that’s it, come here NOW! BILL! BILL! BILL! BILL!

Gradually the owner descended to pleading to get Bill to come in from his swim: “Biiiilll, Pleeease! Biiiillll!

My parents haveĀ  always owned labradors. We’ve never had one that came back until it felt was good and ready, and it was amusing to hear someone else lose the battle of wills with their labrador.

Pylons in the Mist   4 comments

I mentioned in my post about the Romney Marsh Wind Turbines that the pylons which carry the electricity generated by the Dungeness Power Station are not attractive to look at.

That’s probably not entirely fair, as some people like them enough to join an appreciation society. Pylons have been part of the scenery for years and cannot be ignored especially when they provide a nice perspective, running in long straight lines like they do on the marsh.

The mist was fast burning off when I was setting up to take this shot. I think it was taken at just about the right time, any earlier the pylons in the distance wouldn’t have been visable, any later the mist would have lost its softening effects. As a composition I had to choose whether to position the first pylon on the left or move it more central and show the wires disappearing out of shot. I took both shots and this one turned out best.

I shall no doubt try again on a clearer day to show the pylons disappearing into the distance.
