Having a broken leg has a number of disadvantages. Like not being able to walk. Or drive. Or go to work. Or photograph.

But you know- there are some positives. The kindness of friends, for instance. And the fact that for the very reasonable sum of £29.99 plus £6.99 postage and packing, I am now the proud owner of “200 beautiful instrumental recordings to create the perfect ambiance” All on 10 CDs. And you know the best thing? You simply cannot buy this collection in the shops apparently. Which is a surprise.

And so, to the gentle strains of my newly acquired department store background music, I’ve been sifting through images from my 4 years in photography.

So kick back and relax as you take in a glorious sunrise at Selsey to the haunting strains of “I have a dream” played by what sounds very much like the local primary school orchestra.

Now you’ll have excuse me for a few moments, at this point- I also have to finalize my order for the Hawaii office chair, which apparently moves in a continuous circular motion to strengthen your core abdominal muscles.

According to the advertising:

“With Hawaii Chair, it takes the work out of you work day.”

Which sounds fabulous, even if I’m not entirely certain what it means.

And as one woman has so eloquently stated: “Oh my gosh this is amazing. I can really feel this working.”

So there you have it. A broken leg isn’t so bad after all. And it appears that if you sit, you can still get fit. With added music.

I hope you enjoy the image.

I really have to get better at naming my images!

That tiny building on the horizon is one of those huge, modern, concrete grain elevators.

This is the last of the infrared storm images I am planning to post. All that's left are the (colour) nighttime shots. I wanted to say 'thank you' to everyone who has taken the time to comment or fav these images. It has meant a lot to me.

Oklahoma. May 21, 2017.

In May, 2017 I went storm chasing in Tornado Alley. Tornado Alley, which stretches from Texas through to Nebraska, is the area of the U.S. which gets the most severe weather, and the most tornadoes, every spring. Over 8 days, I chased storms through Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado and New Mexico. What an incredible adventure it was!

I tried my hand at time lapse on this trip. If you'd like to see the time lapse film I made, it's on YouTube in 4K and on Flickr, too.

I read that in some places the Great Gray Owl is also called Phantom of the North, Cinereous Owl, Spectral Owl, Lapland Owl, Spruce Owl, Bearded Owl and Sooty Owl. Wherever you live and whatever you call this Owl it sure is a beautiful thing to see. :)
