Spring Starts as the End of Coronavirus is in Sight (Mar 2021)

A14 is deserted (Tue 7 April 2020)

It definitely feels like spring, with daffodils flowering and temperatures rising. I cannot believe that it is nearly a year since I took photographs of a deserted Spaldwick in lockdown. As shown above, the A14 was empty. View the photos of Spaldwick in spring 2020.

Back to the present time, things seem much more hopeful. Scientists across the globe have done an amazing job developing several highly-effective vaccines. I received my first AstraZeneca vaccine injection on Saturday and it looks hopeful that we will come out of many restrictions by the 21st June 2021. One casualty of the last 12 months has been the loss of photographic opportunities, with a dramatic reduction in the number of photographs I have taken – something that will be addressed in the coming months!

Here are some photos taken by my Sony A7R IV camera with a number of lenses (Sigma 35mm F1.2, Sony 24mm F1.4 GM, Sony 135mm F1.8 GM and Sony 90mm F2.8 Macro).
