“In every out thrust headland, in every curving beach, in every grain of sand there is the story of the earth.”
― Rachel Carson-

It’s taken me the longest time in the history of being a ‘photographer’ to upload these photos. Two whole days! They were taken on Monday after we ventured out for some storm shots. However since then I have been in such agony with a poorly tooth that I haven’t been able to concentrate on much. After an even more agonizing visit to the dentist yesterday afternoon, I’m back on track – almost!

We decided to be brave and head to the coast on Monday, where the wind was still battering the beaches. Lepe is a beautiful part of the South Coast and is the shortest distance between the mainland and the Isle of Wight. It was -very- windy. But worth it!

Much of the coastal road was flooded too which added to the experience, as did trying to eat a few chips whilst walking along. Once the seagulls started circling we abandoned that idea and headed for the safety of the car. Afterwards though, a walk along the beach brought some great views with it.

As did trekking home the long way through the New Forest. Trees were down, roads were closed and there was a fair bit of flooding both within the forest and on the roads through. After a few impromptu turnarounds we did a full circle back towards Lepe and got an amazing view of Fawley Power Station with a rainbow framing it nicely. (Photos probably don’t do it justice!)

“Roads are no place for naive chickens dreaming of nirvana.”
― Shalom Auslander

After watching The Chernobyl Diaries last weekend, it seemed fitting to visit an abandoned place full of lots of rotting bits and pieces, just to carry on with the theme of eery things! We decided to just randomly drive today and see what we found to Photograph. (For those that don’t like derelict places, alternative photos are at the bottom of the blog!)

It’s something I’ve not done for a long time, probably because of the increase in petrol prices…anyway, we passed a place almost straight away on the journey, but I felt compelled to drive about another twenty miles and then come back, before we settled for Photographing it!

Nevertheless, it was worth it. This particular derelict place is for sale but doesn’t seem to be overly popular amongst urban explorers, as it’s a bit off the usual track. So it felt like we were the first people there exploring it in all of its glory and decay.

It looked to have once been a chicken farm of sorts, the buildings with their ventilation roofs, or what was left of them, indicated that anyway. There wasn’t much there, but the sunlight streaming in meant that a few lucky shots were able to be captured.

And for those that aren’t into the decaying and derelict places, an opportunity presented itself that’s proof that you should never put the camera down! I caught a rainbow outside the window, coupled with the rain on the window and a Christmas tree that lights up – the final result was pretty nice…
