I know - been away for an age. I really do have to get myself sorted out and back on track again.
I took this at Mayburugh Henge near Penrith in Cumbria back at the start of the year - I was looking for answers in the stones, why life was being so difficult and challenging... almost to the point of asking the ancestors - or anyone - for help. Less than a fortnight later my Mum finally lost her long fight with cancer, and everything went dark.
This photograph, I think, captures that feeling of loss and despair which was to come as no real surprise with hindsight, and I like that about it. It was taken with an Olympus OM-D E-M5 and 9-18mm zoom lens at 9mm (equivalent to 18mm on full frame), hand held (upside down and triggered with my thumb).
