I took this picture only today. I was visiting a part of a nearby nature reserve that I’d not been to before, and decided to see how good a shot of these water birds I could get – apologies for not having identified them yet. This is a cropped section of the original image. I was fairly pleased with the outcome. I imagine that this is one family – two chicks and the proud mum and dad! I hope to visit this spot again soon.It's kind to share!
This past week was a very busy one for me, but I did get a moment or two to visit a favourite haunt of mine, which I find is a good ‘thinking’ place. It is a nature reserve on the site of an old colliery. Scenes like this one seem to symbolise the calm superiority of nature over man. I wonder if, just sometimes, at midnight, you might hear the clanking of wheels and the hiss of steam?It's kind to share!
