Marshy Mud Flats Exhibition
A warm welcome
I’ve spent many years on the marsh capturing its different moods.
Come along and see what I see and hear what I hear!
Forget what you’ve been doing before you arrived
and sink your mind and thoughts into the sounds of the marsh –
It’s not so very far away from here.
This show spans many years starting in the 80s with poetry and
then later photography sketching & collage.
Have a little look at the map showing
were my favourite places are.
This bleak and beautiful place with it’s wide open moody skies is so
important for us and for wildlife.
I am forever striving to capture this place
and never tire of it.
I wake with a start & peep out the window I pull my cloths on & my bag is ready by the front door
I grab my bike & pedal like crazy down Church St
I have a very important appointment & I can’t be late !
The sky colour is warming & the birds are giving it some.
I ditch my bike on a scrubby bit of Higham common & start walking at a pace.
A Nightingale deep within thorny trees sings out tickling the air with his love song
I’m pulled arrested spell bound glued to the spot I’m captured
I close my eyes & I breath his song into my soul.
I hate being late but what an excuse !
Over the narrow bridge & then into the field pylons reach out as far as I can see
I’m still on time but there’s no time to lose
it want wait it will start without me I need the best view !
Over a stile & onto a wide path nearly there
The delicate mist hugs the ground & the air is warm.
The stage is set & I have the best seat
well I’m the only human here !
The ewe’s are dozing their lambs nestled next to them.
I Cheer inside that I made it. And here it comes & for a second time this day
I’m rooted to the spot & breath this spectacle in & witness the sunrise.
