Posing Robin

Hi there on yet another murky Wednesday, I hope you’re well despite the trials the weather has set for us! Thanks for stopping by, today I have a few shots of a posing robin, amongst the usual sunrise/sunset and tree photos πŸ™‚

Please let me know your thoughts using the comments box, I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Also, for larger images, just click on the pics…

I’ll start with this sunrise shot taken from last week when I stopped off on my way to work and grabbed a quick couple of shots from Beech Hill, a rather pretty little village a stone’s throw from where I live.

A couple of weeks ago I took a walk through Fulham Woods again and whilst I didn’t take any tree shots this time, I did grab a few photos of a posing robin, a cute little dude who seemed more than happy to sit there whilst I took shot after shot of him sitting there on a branch only a couple of metres away.

Turning away...

Following on from that little fella I grabbed a shot of another posing robin in the back garden at home…

Our back garden robin

I really want to put a bird feeder up on our grand oak tree at the bottom of our garden, up until this point I was;t too fussed about bird photography but these chance encounters have piqued my interest in the little critters. I think I should wait until our two cats are a little bit older so they wouldn’t have any inclination to climb up to the feeder for a tasty snack…

Ok, so it’d be a rare thing for me not to post up a tree shot, and here it is…the tree that I see whenever I look out of the living room window, taken one frosty morning last week…

Which leads me on to the closing shot of the moon hanging above the twinkling lights of early evening Reading…

I hope you enjoyed these photos. Weather permitting I’ll have some new ones next week.

Don’t forget you can purchase any of the photos I post within these blog pages, just let me know which ones you’re interested in and what format (normal print, canvas, aluminium etc) and which size and I’ll be more than happy to let you know the cost πŸ™‚

I also have a page on ViewbugΒ where there are various competitions etc, why not head on over and take a look πŸ™‚

Thanks,

Mart

My first post of 2016

Hi there! This is my first post of 2016, thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you all had a great festive break and that you’re all rested.

It’s been a little while since I last posted mainly due to rubbishy weather where I am in West Berkshire. If it wasn’t rain it was dull white cloud that seems to leech the colour out of everything, leaving a dull landscape. Not the sort of weather that inspires, really!

Anyway, enough of my typical British conversation, bemoaning the weather and the like! My first post of the new year is a little selfish; a few snaps of my beautiful daughter and my youngest niece, our Rhodesian Ridgback Maya and my sister’s dog Leo and a sunrise….

Above are 3 photos of my daughter and 1 of my daughter and niece. These were taken over New Year when we were staying with my sister for our traditional family get together πŸ™‚

Sunrise in Grazeley

The last photo above was taken early one morning in December in Grazeley, as I was driving to work.

I hope you didn’t mind my family pics. Hopefully I’ll have something a little more diverse next time. So until then, take care πŸ™‚

Mart
