Month: May 2017

  • Night Sky

    Looking towards the north tonight, there was a glow from the sunlight (as crazy as that sounds, it doesn’t get fully dark to the north until later, despite it being dark here at that point!). I thought I’d try taking a photo, as there was a strangely red glow to the clouds and sky. I didn’t want […]

  • Evening Skies

    The sky wasn’t an intense red at sunset, but there was a nice ambery orange glow to the clouds towards the north. #30dayswild

  • Ever tried taking a photo of a fast moving small bird?

    If there’s one disadvantage of trying to take a photo of those rapidly moving small birds, it’s how swiftly they fly! After multiple photos of just a clear blue sky where it had flown out of the shot, and others that were just a blur as it changed direction as I took the photo, I got lucky. […]

  • The local Robin

    The neighbourhood robin has made an appearance again. Not content with just flying down onto the grass while it’s being cut (you need eyes in the back of your head to make sure he stays safe!), he’s been checking over the other gardens for some tasty insects. I’m assuming he has a family to feed, […]

  • It’s a day for preening

    I will admit that I’ve never spotted crows preening before, so I was surprised that these two were just happily perched like this on a nearby roof for quite so long. #30dayswild

  • Stunning Sunsets

    Another reflected sunset for today – my camera still struggles to capture the red to quite the level that it looks in the sky, but I think this is a more accurate photo than some I’ve taken before! #30dayswild

  • Clouds, clouds, and unusual clouds

    I didn’t really think there was anything particularly special about these clouds as I started taking photos. But later in the day as the clouds cleared, we were left with some usually wispy clouds that looked like someone had painted them with a very wobbly hand! Then as we got closer to sunset, the contrails started to […]

  • Torrential Rain

    We’re jumping back a few days to May 20th for today’s post, and the torrential rain! It provided some fantastically dark clouds…. ….and also the opportunity to try and take some photos of the rain itself: #30dayswild

  • Sunset…. well, kind of

    Although my window faces northeast, we do get some stunning sunset effects as the sunlight catches the clouds. In fact, this was more colourful than the ‘actual’ sunset! #30dayswild

  • Morning Clouds

    And just to prove my thought from yesterday, I’ve not seen clouds like this of a morning before – the sunlight was just starting to break through, giving the clouds an unusual illumination. #30dayswild
