We took a quick trip out to Perry Green this afternoon to see how the Bluebells were doing. Whilst it’s still a little early in the season, I can conform they are doing well but there are still more to appear!
More cuteness from around Doctor’s Pond this morning…plenty more pictures after the break…
I wasn’t expecting the quite thick mist that greeted me this morning, but it was a mild morning and spring certainly feels like it’s in the air…the oil seed rape is already flowering and there is an abundance of blossom around Great Dunmow at the moment…
A had an early evening potter around Great Dunmow and got this shot of a tree bridging the River Chelmer.
Killed by salt water, this is the second time I have photographed these trees…and the second time that I forgot my tripod when photographing these trees…which was incredibly annoying as there was a good breeze and the clouds were zooming across the sky…next time perhaps.
I was pleased with this infra-red shot though.
I thought I’d be able to get to this rather lovely wind-pump just outside Lowestoft a good 40 minutes before sunset after working in Great Yarmouth today. As always, the best laid plans meant I turned up just before sunset – this picture was the first I took as I approached the mill.
My one piece of luck was that there was a sunset at all, it having been grey and rainy most of the day…so I was pretty happy…after the break there is a second shot looking away from the sunset which has a completely different feel.
We’re getting to the time that the sun is already coming above the horizon when I set off for my morning walk around Dunmow…that’s not always a disadvantage. When you have a lot of cloud cover a brief break in that cloud cover can give quite a nice look to your photographs, as it did today.
Quite a lovely morning today on Beaumonts Hill in Great Dunmow, with a pretty sunrise and low mist…I’ve photographed this tree a few times, but this is definitely my favourite of it so far.
Coming home from a Camera Club meeting I had a spare 30 mins around sunset to stop off, so I took the long way home and came back via Debden. I stopped off a the church and walked down to the lake where there was a lonely Swan and (briefly until he saw me) a Grey Heron. This was one of the last shots I took and includes none of the local wildlife but I like it because it reminds me how peaceful it was down there. This really captures the mood perfectly.
It’s nice to get a slightly different shot of Beaumont’s Hill at sunrise. This morning my normal shot of this scene, down the farm track, was just a bit samey, so I continued on my walk just another 10 – 15 yards and got this totally different sunrise shot. The lack of a leading line is a little problematic, but you can’t have everything!
