Fishbourne

On Saturday 20th(?) January 2001 the weather was very clear (and so quite cold), but after doing the weekly shop decided I couldn't miss this opportunity and decided to walk to Fishbourne from Chichester. Perhaps going in my flying jacket and trainers was a little inadvisable after all the rain we'd had in previous months - although there hadn't been much rain in recent days, the fields were still completely saturated with water and early optimistic sod-hopping (jumping from tuft of grass to tuft of grass to try and stay out of the water) soon gave way to trudging along with wet and muddy feet. I think it was well worth it in the end though.

Arundel from a moving train

Although I bought the camera at the computer show in October ostensibly to capture images of that show, I was thinking of getting a camera for some time.

After seeing some lovely sunrises around the Arundel area on the train to London each morning, I knew that I had very little time before the clocks changed back to GMT and I wouldn't be able to capture these images for some time - if indeed I ever got the chance again, with the rains causing morning mists I might not get the same views when everything had a chance to dry out. As it was it took me until just a few days before the clocks went back before the conditions were right to take my first shots. Bear in mind all of these are taken through the window of a moving train.
