I got this shot on one of our recent sunny days. It looks as if there will be raspberries this year, which is good. Many thanks to all my little winged furry friends, who were going at it like, well… bees’ wings. As they say!It's kind to share!
Despite the longer hours of daylight we’re enjoying at present, sometimes it gets late before I get round to photography. This shot of an allium was taken with a separate flash unit, held just to the side. I wanted to get a picture of this one in full flower and before any damage by wind and rain! The power of the flash allowed me to use a small lens opening (large f-number) giving better depth of field. Have I said before, how I love the colour purple…?It's kind to share!
Last Monday was wet. How do you say “It’s raining, but that’s OK…” in a photo? As some of you know, I often take pictures of flowers in the rain, a subject of which I am very fond. But I wanted a change, so I looked at this smallish pine tree. It’s all about noticing, isn’t it?It's kind to share!

Old walls, like this one, fascinate me. This is actually part of an old railway bridge. Trains passing underneath might have taken troops, or supplies, on the first part of their journey to France in 1914. In contrast, we’re looking at this year’s new growth of ivy (the paler leaves.)
Those bricklayers knew how to build, all right. It just saddens me that they had to do that work for a pittance. But that is another story.It's kind to share!
Who doesn’t love, as they say, a candle tree? This shot was taken in the evening, using quite a slow shutter speed, hence the slight blurring – which I think is sometimes not an undesirable effect. Large, old trees make me think, too. If they could talk, what stories they would have to tell!It's kind to share!
Taken last Monday, this is the first time I’ve managed to capture an image of earth-shine. This is the phenomenon whereby a very faint ‘full moon’ is visible due to the moon reflecting the Earth’s light, back to us. It’s just visible, here.It's kind to share!
This Picture was taken yesterday afternoon. Do people still call this the bud haze? I hope they do, because no other term would be so descriptive of such a romantic time of year. In just a day or two, barren-looking woodlands become sacred temples.It's kind to share!
