Wow! These weeks are flying by (although it work it does feel like the 946Th of January! J cat (and Z cat) wish you a happy weekend. Has anyone got anything planned? Let me know in the comment section.
It also looks like it’s going to be a lovely weekend in Yorkshire!
The first full moon of 2022 is the Wolf Moon, which was on Monday 17th January 2022.
This full moon was so named because villagers used to hear packs of wolves howling in hunger around this time of the year. It’s also known as the Old Moon, Ice Moon and Snow Moon, although the latter is usually associated with February’s full moon.
I took these images on the morning of the 18th at around 8:15am. They look stunning especially with the Minster in the background.
Another play at Droste this evening, this time it’s the beautiful Wood Sorrell from the fields near me. It was when it was ice cold with thick fog that never cleared all day.
The Droste effect describes a specific type of recursive picture in which a smaller version of the larger image is featured within the larger image. Another term for this surreal photography effect is mise en abyme, which refers to the practice of inserting a replica of an image within itself. This creates a repetition that could continue forever, as the smaller version of the picture would contain an even smaller replica and so on.
I’m slowly getting through the images that I took from my January walk week 2 at the Castle Howard Estate. If you look carefully you will see a tiny Shetland pony just to the right of the white horse. Can you spot him? He was quite shy so I couldn’t get a better picture of him!
A great weekend of sunsets, bike rides and long walks over the Howardian Hills. Even though the weather forecast lied and said no rain! I hope you enjoy this short video of my walk around the estate of Castle Howard. There was ice on the puddles and in sheltered parts of the forest.
