Early March walking along the banks of the river Suir, county Tipperary.

The trees are still bare but not for long now, we had the first dry day for a long time yet it was cool.

I love this river walk very much, a mountain view of Slievenamon county Tipperary, on the north side of the river and of the hills of county Waterford on the south side.

Dear March – Come in
Emily Dickinson, 1830 – 1886

Dear March – Come in –
How glad I am –
I hoped for you before –
Put down your Hat –
You must have walked –
How out of Breath you are –
Dear March, how are you, and the Rest –
Did you leave Nature well –
Oh March, Come right upstairs with me –
I have so much to tell –

I got your Letter, and the Birds –
The Maples never knew that you were coming –
I declare – how Red their Faces grew –
But March, forgive me –
And all those Hills you left for me to Hue –
There was no Purple suitable –
You took it all with you –

Who knocks? That April –
Lock the Door –
I will not be pursued –
He stayed away a Year to call
When I am occupied –
But trifles look so trivial
As soon as you have come

That blame is just as dear as Praise
And Praise as mere as Blame –

The Last afternoon of March 2016

This afternoon is bright and sunny
between the mountain clouds,

Springtime is in the air,

The weather is mild on this late March afternoon,
the breath of April is rising fast,

I am alone on the quiet mountain top
looking down on an old untried illusion

March poem Nigel Borrington 03

Some shadows sit on the green landscape below
memory’s rise from their sleep,

The crows fly above while others rest
on the stone walls of this mountain side,

In the air as hunting birds call
the fast hover of the kestrels wings.

March poem Nigel Borrington 02

I just love taking a evening walk at this time of year, the evenings are staying lighter but we still get the chance to be out when the sun is very low in the sky, ready to set.

These recent images, show just how perfect I feel our local landscape looks in the early springtime evenings, with deep colours.

I love making the most of the Sun in my images, as it sinks behind the forest trees.
