We had our weekend walk around Rowney Woods near Saffrom Walden and saw a couple of Buzzrads flying in the distance. Unusually, 1 of them left his usual area and gave us a fly past as he headed off to pastures new.
Stepping to the left hand side of these groynes (see earlier picture) you got quite a different photograph…mainly because you are shooting more into the sun.
These seals at Horsey Gap are really very lazy…sleep, sleep, sleep is all they seem to do…or is it?
I was in Norfolk for a couple of days over the weekend for our works Christmas do and actually managed to get up for sunrise! It always helps that I don’t sleep well in a new bed.
Anyhow, I was in Gorleston-on-Sea and had taken the trouble to look at a Google map of the area and had convinced myself I was in Lowestoft so I could shoot the pier…I wasn’t and I couldn’t!
So these groynes were the next best thing!

I visited Horsey Gap in Norfolk on Saturday where there are over 1400 grey seal pubs…and their parents, gathered along the shore. It’s quite a sight.
So here’s a super cute shot of just one of them who had clearly had a busy day.

It’s been a while since I took a shot of The Star in Great Dunmow…and it’s a while since I took this particular shot, but I hadn’t realised that I hadn’t posted this here.

This female Sparrowhawk caught her dinner in our back garden – I noticed the fact when I walked into the kitchen to make a cup of tea…you couldn’t miss all those feathers. I was able to pop my lens through the cat flap to get to the birds eye-level and capture the action!

Another glorious day meant it was way to hot to venture out until 8.00pm in the evening. With sunset not until 9.20pm that’s not such a problem, the woods were still really dark with the heavy summer canopy blocking out much of the sunlight…so, this is a public footpath we (still) haven’t followed across the field of barley. I haven’t done any HDR for a while – so it was nice to run this shot through Photomatix to create this shot.
It’s poppy time!
Visited Walton on the Naze again today to shoot the Pill Boxes slowly being consumed by the North Sea. More images below…
