One walk, many skies

It was one of those bright and reasonably warm February afternoons where the sun is acute and golden in a bright blue sky yet it was already working on producing some wonderful contrast, whipping up clouds into monumental formations, sculpting them into long smokey shapes and, eventually, turning them sepia-black.

Temperatures started to plummet and, by the end of our walk, we had two different weather systems going on, one on each side of our path. Heavy sleet started coming down just as we reached the protection of the car and, through the windscreen of sticky white, we enjoyed watching the sunset starting to happen over the river from the top of the hill.

I’m a prolific photographer when it comes to the recording all the incredible light-effects that occur right above our heads and have a sizeable (ever-growing) Sky album on Flickr so am more than familiar with the sheer variety that the simple act of looking upwards can deliver. What is so impressive to me is that all these very different shots, snapped using the phone in my pocket, came from one single walk of an hour’s duration – which just goes to show that February is the most incredibly contrasty month!

About Helen White

Helen White is a professional artist and published writer with two primary blogs to her name. Her themes pivot around health and wellbeing, expanded consciousness and ways of noticing how life is a constant dance between the deeply subjective and the collective-universal, all of which she explores with a daily hunger to get to know herself better. Her blog Living Whole shines a light on living with high sensitivity, dealing with trauma and healing from chronic health issues. Spinning the Light is an extremely broad-based platform where she elucidates the everyday alchemy of relentless self-exploration. A lifetime of "feeling like an outsider" slowly emerged as neurodivergence (being a Highly Sensitive Person with ADHD, synaesthesia, sensory processing challenges and other defecits overlapping with giftedness). All of these topics are covered in her blogs, written from two distinct vantage points so, if you have enjoyed one of them, you may wish to explore the other for a different, yet entirely complimentary, perspective.
