Moody sky

Just like a London Bus, you don't see one for ages and then 3 come along together.
.....My third post today!I came downstairs the other morning and this was the view from our back door. A nice moody sun. Needless to say that by the time I'd gone and got the camera there were flares radiating from the sun and I'd lost the opportunity.

Luckily the clouds didn't break up and I was fortunate enough to fire off half a dozen shots, experimenting with the exposure compensation as I went. Hope you enjoy.

Have a great weekend.

Watch The Birdie

For sometime, I'd been puzzled by some weeds and dirt having been left on the paving outside the back door. I'd assumed a blackbird but the mystery was solved when I spotted Jasper watching something closely outside. If you look closely, you can just see the object of desire to the left of the green tub. (Click all the photo's to expand)It was a Wren. So small but had obviously chosen our yard as its patch. It could not have been aware of Jasper watching a potential meal as it came right up to the door.

If you look closely you can see the Wren to the left of Jasper. Needless to say, at this point Jenny Wren realised there were big yellow eyes watching intently and off it went, never to be seen so close again.
Poor old Jasper had to make do with Kit e Cat for breakfast again.

Hunstanton Skys

I came across this pic and thought it dramatic enough to post. It is at Hunstanton, which is on the Norfolk side of the Wash. You can just make out a few trees over on the Lincolnshire coast. As I recall, it was a lovely warm August day. The clouds were quite ominous inland but perfect blue sky out to sea.

For those of you that don't know this part of the coast, the tides go a long way out for Low Tide but beware, they come back in a hurry sometimes.
