Last Post of the Year

Hiya folks, I trust you’re all well and geared up for the festive period? This will be the last post of the year, unless we have some amazing weather between now and 2017! As usual it’s a miss-mash of photos new and old. And as usual you can enlarge them by clicking on the photo. Comments, thoughts etc are always welcome so please don’t forget to fill up a comment box 🙂


To start, a few bird pics taken in my back garden. We get loads of them flocking to the feeder which is great, I love to sit and watch them.

So the top 2 pics show a nuthatch and a couple of blue tits. The 3rd pic is a lesser spotted woodpecker. Actually, as I sit typing this, he’s back again making small work of the suet block.

Wokefield Common

Last Wednesday I was charged with taking the mutt for her morning walk. I decided to visit Wokefield Common, I hadn’t been there for a while what with the dark evenings and all. Stupidly I didn’t take my Canon. Really annoying as the fog was rising and the light shafts were incredible. At least I had my trusty iPhone…

It really was a shame I wasn’t prepared for the scene that awaited me here, but these aren’t too bad for a phone camera I guess.

Sunset at Wasing Park

Those of you who know me will know how much I love sunsets. And Wasing Park. After the joys of the light shafts in the morning, I took myself off to Aldermaston in the evening. I only managed a couple of shots but it was still worth it, I thought.

And, to Finish…

A few random shots;  The top one is a re-edit of a shot I took last September when I was in Southern Ireland. The fisherman set up and started beach casting so I fired off a couple of shots of him underneath the gathering clouds.

The shot above was taken looking out at the Burghfield Sailing Club lake.

These 2 above were taken on a very foggy morning along the River Kennet as I walked Maya.

Well, that’s it for this year. I hope you’ve enjoyed looking at my photos and I haven’t bored you too much with my meanderings.

As always, photos can be bought for prints, canvasses, aluminium or even key rings if you so wish! Just let me know which photos you like and we can work something out 🙂

All that is left for me to say is that I wish you all a very Happy Christmas and New Year and I look forward to sharing more photos with you in 2017

Sunrise, Sunset and Trees

Nice to see the most natural and beautiful engineering feat attached to my car last Tuesday morning, glistening in the early morning sunrise.

And these 2 I took at the entrance to Swallowfield Park after detouring to go the scenic route into work last Friday.

The final 2 above were taken on Denmark Street in Wokingham at about 4pm last Friday. Those nights are drawing in now that the clocks went back last weekend.

Beautiful autumn sunrise

I took this shot just before I set off for work on Friday morning. The bushes were full of beautiful orbs glistening in the light of the morning sun.

I really need to start taking my dslr out with me; not long after I’d set off for work this morning I was presented with some beautiful photo opportunities. I only had my phone with me so had to make the most of what I had.

James Lane Sunrise

It was only when I was messing about with this photo that I realised my shot had captured a web in the tree above me. This highlights for me one of the reasons I love HDR photography so much, enhancing details in dark or shadowed areas to expose something you may not have noticed before.
Have to say that this one is my favourite of the 2, looks more normal…
