My Photojournalism: The Wintry Weather in UK

Image


March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. That is an English proverb to describe the typical weather in March. Apparently this time of year it happened the other way round in United Kingdom (UK).

March started with beautiful and pleasant weather, sunny and dry. I read on a newspaper about a week ago that this is the hottest March in UK in 55 years. Unfortunately the weather turned out chilly in the last week.

Back to the English proverb. According to the article on Wikipedia it is said that the proverb is applied to the month of April more often than March in Wales. Apparently it is true. The weather forecast had predicted a week ago that there would be snow coming and there would be a chance to have snow on Easter! They were right except for having snowed on Easter. There were some snow at the time but the melting ones as I saw it when I went to North Wales on Sunday.

So now UK is having wintry weather in the spring time! I even have to wear my winter coat back due to the weather conditions at the moment.

The Sunset and The Birds

Taking a picture of a bird is always be one of my obsessions in photography. I used my Samsung Digimax A7 Digital Camera to take these pictures.

Actually I wasn’t planning to take the pictures of the birds but the sunset since it formed like a heart at the time. But then I saw there were a lot of birds flying around the river and so I decided to take their pictures as well along with the sunset.

Sophisticated Branches

Continuing my previous post about The Beauty in Black and White so here another pictures of the snow when it hit the United Kingdom in the winter 2009.

The branches looked sophisticate by the snow covered them up.

Hilbre Island

A day trip to Hilbre Island, West Kirkby, United Kingdom, August 2008. It really was a nice trip with some friends of mine. We walked barefoot to the islands from the mainland at low tide and all we could see was a beautiful panoramic of the sky, the water, the sun, the sand, the rock, the bird, everything!

I took the picture with my Samsung Digimax A7 camera.

A Summer Couple

I took these pictures in the summer where I was practicing a lot to take close up pictures. I always love to see the close up pictures of the insects or flowers and these ones were my first experience to capture the moment between the bee and the flower. I used my Samsung Digimax A7 camera.
