Dunmow

I regularly see a lot of rabbits on my morning walks around Dunmow. Today, I had my infra-red camera with me so wondered what a rabbit would look like…wonder no more – I like how the eye has come out particularly.


Another visit to Garnetts Wood in Barnston where the bluebells are still doing pretty well. I like how the depth of field gives the illusion that the bluebells are swirling around the bottom of the image.

We had a walk around Garnetts Wood this afternoon…this shot was taken just before the heavens opened and we got soaked. On returning home (about 3 miles away) we found there had been no rain at all there!


I’ve taken this shot a few times and never really been happy with the result…here’s an infra-red version…still not happy!


From this mornings walk…he was a very busy squirrel!

 


Occasionally we get the odd Greylag Goose paying a visit to Doctors Pond and this chap was a fine specimen, strutting his stuff amongst the squabbling ducks and Canada Geese. Sad to report that we are down to 4 ducklings now from the original 7.


A very rude woman sat in a convertible car started shouting at me as I stopped to take this photograph…she was, apparently, watching a chap drag in a fish from the pond…something that happens about 40 times a day during the fishing season, What the silly woman didn’t realise was that, if she simple asked politely I would happily have backed away…strangely haranguing me from her car didn’t achieve the result she wanted. They moved the car along to continue their surveillance of the “fisherman” uninterpreted  by my use of the public footpath!

I ended up with this picture of the Easter decorations that had been added to the barrier 😉


It was a beautiful morning in Great Dunmow today, just after sunrise with the mist still lingering across the fields viewed from the top of Beaumonts Lane…lovely start to the day.

Lovely Spring Day today in Great Dunmow, the bullocks were enjoying a leisurely breakfast as I trotted past on my morning walk.


Another early morning shot of this tree from my morning walk, it’s noticeable that the green shoots are beginning to show themselves as all the birds busy themselves with the coming spring
