Hey, we are back from our little break over the Easter weekend. We popped down to Romney Marsh Good Friday and stayed over for a couple of nights in a really cute little cottage called The Stable. It was in a very quiet location with glorious views from the bedroom across open fields. We did a lot of lying on the bed watching a horse trundle past, 3 ducks taking their evening stroll and even a green woodpecker chilling out in the grass.
It was so peaceful and relaxing – each night we slept straight through, getting a good 8-9 hours sleep. Wonderful.
During the day we pottered around in the car visiting some favourite spots. The first of these is St Thomas at Fairfield church near Brookland. It is a stunning little church in the middle of a field of sheep, surrounded by irrigation channels. Some photos follow, taken with my infrared camera to try to capture something different from this much photographed location.Love how the grass turns white with infrared. The first shot has had the red and blue channels reversed in Photoshop to get the blue sky back. Second shot is of Jon, he was actually wearing a blue cap and t-shirt! The third is straight from camera with a bit of contrast etc added to show the orange skies – very apocalyptic!
We had to go to Dungeness – an unusual, barren, desolate but beautiful location where the nuclear power station meets tiny wooden houses, fishing boats and nature reserve. A truly unique location. We stopped off for lunch at The Pilot – I had fish and chips and Jon went for the burger. It wasn’t bad – not the best I have eaten but would give it a solid 3/5.
Dungeness is again a much photographed location so trying to get something different is difficult. I went for some close up shots of the run down huts and boats. I really like the textures I was getting in some of these. Plus of course, some of the boats themselves.
All in all it was a great little break. It gave us time away from the computers and busy day to day stuff. Time to recharge the batteries and enjoy the peace and quiet.
Now it’s back to normal!
More photos will follow as I find time to process them!
Till next time…
