When I got up just after five this morning I saw that we were having the first frost of this winter. Compared to last year we are about a week later and the frost and fog are less severe. I know because I photographed it.
A perfect September morning at my favourite time of the year indicates the end of the summer and means that we are open for business again after a long, lazy summer and days spent in the shade of an olive tree on a Mediterranean beach.
When model Adele, makeup artist Helen and I got together the day before the summer solstice, summer arrived for just one day. I am convinced that this is not a coincidence – the weather gods must have been smiling upon us. See the “Face Of Summer 2012″ and read about the shoot.
Already the days are getting markedly longer. Light is gaining the upper hand over darkness in planet earth’s dance with the seasons as I look at a photograph, which I made not three weeks ago standing on Roundway Hill.
The world early this morning, looking out of my studio window towards Oliver’s Castle on Roundway Hill. The light has no longer the quality of that of an August morning. Change is in the air but has not yet gained the momentum to make itself felt.
