After at least 9 years wi’ my trust fuji finepix have upgraded to 16million pixels and a 22x wide zoom… not got the hang of it all yet but here a few starters.
sunlight and beech leaves, soaring cow parsley/hemlock, fuzzy young blue tit, some o’ the gang (last count 21), happy duck in the river, wee cock sparra, scavenging dunnock and lastly a jaunty chiffchaff
So where on earth did all that time go? Happy new 2013 to one and all!
Went off up the hill this morning to take a photy of the bleak owing to the dull light and foggy conditions. Nothing too exciting to see however but found a wee bit of colour and an unexpected primrose. In fact it looks like there will be a super bank of them later on. Cheers!
Off out wi’ the camera since it was nice ‘n’ sunny this forenoon. I had intended heading for a beautiful garden (didn’t snap as it was being worked on at the time) but got distracted by these on the way. They are connected to my previous post As I Walked Out… since it is more or less the same area just shifted forward four months. Spot the differences?
- wonderful wildflower end of the Millenium Field… super
- closeup of a cornflower, my first
- medium sized gowan – big daisy
- the brightest yellow – black eyed susan/rudbekia
- fluffy thistle heads
- fat glossy rosehips
- broom pods ready to pop
- popped! (sound backdrop of pops, crackles, buzzing bees and thrumming crickets)
- bramble view – taste good too!
This is the day that is supposed to be hot. Looking out at the view first thing I saw the morning mist and decided to take myself to the Victorian water tower, before the sun really got going. Dug out my teeny radio and fixed it to the shuffle, pocketed the camera and set off with the intention of a half hour each way. As usual I got to my destination, turned round and got side tracked, disorientated and almost lost on the way back home!
Here are twelve wee pics of there and back, including some big vistas, the water tower, dry ski slope and minature railway. The big thing you are missing out on is the loud and continuous bird song. Excellent!
