Mostly photography and some other musings.

This days are hot here in UK. In a way, its different to what I’m used to in Madrid, where the weather is less humid. With just above 20ºC there is a quite summery sensation. More if it is a sunny day. Reach 30ºC and they call it heat wave. Ha!, in Madrid we usually get to 40ºC and in some parts of the south of Spain even a bit more. But it feels completely different. Any way, what I think we have missed this year is a proper winter. These pictures are from a few years ago, where we had a proper snow falls. I remember that some airports were closed, and satellite pictures of the British islands entirely covered in snow made the news. It felt really much colder than in Madrid. Although winters in Madrid are usually cold enough. Something that still is surprising to some people I speak to.

One of my favourite spots in Cambridge.

I enjoy coming here just for a walk. In summer it looks great. When I took this one it was freezing cold. I think processing in black and white was needed, and this row of trees makes some interesting compositions possible. The most obvious may be this one point centre perspective. I will post more pictures of this place taken in other seasons.
