A Different Trail

Recently I went for a walk along the route of a disused railway line.  The route was well used by dog walkers and cyclists alike.  Birds sang high up in the trees and butterflies and bees went from flower to flower, the sun was shining brightly.


Lucky I had my trusty camera

It’s St Swithuns Day

Tomorrow, Today or Yesterday – It all depends when you read this post. So to all Happy St Swithuns Day. Just hope it doesn’t rain as legend dictates it will rain for 40 daysIMG_0003

Lazy Days

Recently I took ‘Time Out’ from my ‘busy, hectic life’ and just chilled…..which was quite hard as there was a mini heatwave. Still It had the desired effect and recharged the batteries. I also got to see a Red Kite hovering above me for some time – no photo of course – my digital camera was inaccessible – Just seeing it riding the air currents above me was enough.
However after it moved on I took the opportunity to grab my camera to have it ready to capture what ever else came into my eye-line.

Simple Things

A flower

Clouds in the sky


A sunset

And now for something completely different

It’s surprising what you can photograph siting in a deck chair.


Heatwave and the Summer of ’76

Yesterday was hot! so hot and muggy that most people tried everything they could to keep cool, today is cloudy and fresher. In ’76 all I can remember is every-day was hot, muggy and night time tempts being around the 20c mark, this went on for days and weeks, the grass turned yellow and large cracks appeared due to lack of water. Hosepipe bans, tarmac melting and personally the invasion of flying ants……they were supersized ants….the size I’ve never seen since, put me off creature features for some time.

Yesterday was a day of reflection, today is a day of looking forward. To the next heatwave Summer? or simply to tomorrow.
