Wolf Moon

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.

Cold weekend

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.

Weekend walks

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!
