Stuck at home (with this view)

Monday 1st October 2018, 8.55am (day 2,594)

Nutclough, 1/10/18

The second monochrome shot in a row but it was a way of bringing some added interest to this view. I worked at home all day and did not leave the house. I know it’s a pretty distinctive view, in relative terms. But it is also everyday, for us at least.

By the water race

Sunday 17th January 2016, 9.30am (day 1,606)

Water race, 17/1/16

After the weather conditions depicted on the last couple of days, getting gradually closer to home, I guess it’s no real surprise that today saw snow on the ground in Hebden Bridge. I like this shot because it’s essentially monochrome, except for that stripe of red in the corner — a plastic barrier put up to stop people falling off the upper path and down into the water race here. Not far off this picture here, but not the same, which is why sometimes you can get away with doing multiple shots of the same place.

Nutclough, Bonfire Night

Thursday 5th November 2015, 7.05pm (day 1,533)

Nutclough bonfire night, 5/11/15

Remember, remember, the fifth of November. The gunpowder treason and plot. I see no reason why the gunpowder treason should ever be forgot. (Said V.)

Nutclough Woods, Boxing Day

Friday 26th December 2014, 12.50pm (day 1,219)

Nutclough Woods, 26/12/14

Not an exciting shot. Or a particularly technically adept one. In fact, I can’t claim anything much for this one other than that it was the best I managed on the day. It’s picturesque enough I suppose. Boxing Day, nothing much happened… We got a walk in the woods and some family time.

The rooves of Nutclough

Thursday 18th September 2014, 4.20pm (day 1,120)

Nutclough rooves, 18/9/14

Today was not a great deal more active, or well-lit, than yesterday, but now and again there are still new things to be found in the immediate vicinity of the house. These are the rooves of our neighbours, the road curving down the hill towards the town, viewed from our attic room.

The world’s greatest cycle race comes through Nutclough…

Sunday 6th July 2014, 1.50pm (day 1,046)

Tour de France, 6/7/14

…so I think the Tour de France should be the subject of today’s picture… don’t you? I doubt any other world-class sporting event is going to come within a few feet of my front door again. Of all the ones I got today I like because of my friend Simon’s smile, and also the fact it has the yellow jersey on it — he’s just visible in the centre.

Front step view

Wednesday 29th January 2014, 5.40pm (day 888)

Front step view, 29/1/14

Day 888, so a neat day numerically, but I’m still laid low by whatever virus it is that has taken up residence in my body so my horizons have shrunk somewhat. What is this abstract? A footway sign, the flare from a street lamp, and steam from a neighbour’s heating vent illuminated by the traffic light behind.

Wednesday 1st January 2014, 3.55pm (day 860)

Nutclough, 1/1/14Another year, still here. But that’s a good thing.

The shortest day

Saturday 21st December 2013, 2.10pm (day 849)

Solstice sunset, 21/12/13Thanks to the valley wall to the south of the town, Hebden Bridge gets an earlier sunset each day than the planet’s axial tilt otherwise decrees; and today is the earliest of all.

A very windy day

Thursday 5th December 2013, 8.40am (day 833)

Blown over, 5/12/13Wind is the hardest form of weather to capture on camera: this is my best effort at encapsulating what was, really, a very windy day, at least between dawn and about 2pm. The bins couldn’t hack it, they’re all down for the duration.
