Well over a year ago our PhotoGroup Website Editor suggested that it might be interesting to photograph something local throughout a year, documenting the changing light and seasons. It needed to be pretty local, to allow for frequent visits, so I opted for Marsworth reservoir, a place I have known and loved all my life. There are many good viewpoints, but I chose the group of poplars that fringe the water.
I have always admired Monet's series of paintings of haystacks and of Rouen cathedral in different lights, so these were my inspiration. Covid did intervene for a few weeks when we were unable to leave home, so I had to plug that gap the following year to complete the album. I ended up with over 300 photographs, so selecting favourites took some time. It has been a delight.
The photographs were taken in 2020 and 2021.
