Experimenting with black and white skies – needs lots of texture in order to work.  I think I prefer them in colour on the whole, but it does add a new dimension to see them in black and white.

Church spire of St Mary Magdalene, Newark on Trent, reflected in puddle.  Round the other side, this spire has a cannonball hole in it where it was hit during the Civil War.

Polish war graves, Newark Cemetery

Polish war graves, Newark-on-Trent cemetery.  This cemetery is five minutes walk from our house, and is a lovely, peaceful place with beautiful trees and lots of flowers.  These graves commemorate the many Polish men who lived locally and died in WW2.  To me the rows of white graves look a bit like soldiers standing in rank.  This photo was taken in winter, when it’s starkly beautiful, but in summer the tree is lushly green, flowering plants grow among the graves and the spaces between them are full of butterflies.  The title is a quote from a grave in another part of the cemetery.
