If you watch any English TV, the Christmas specials almost always end with snowfall.
This is a lie.
However we’ve got very close to a white Christmas this year and here are some pics I managed to grab before freezing my unspeakables off!
I hope you’ve all had a great Christmas!
This morning I woke to the sound of wind and it was the right type of day to do something pretty cool and make a time lapse video of some clouds. So on the way to work I made this:
Despite this beauty the power of the wind has been in the news a lot these last few days and my thoughts go out to those who have been affected by the storms in the Caribbean.
Over the last week, we’ve seen a lot of pictures of the moon, typically in front of the sun. But the other night, I got out the tripod, my smart phone and a ‘special lens’ and took some pics. I’m rather proud of these!
Look how great these are! You can see individual craters, half lit on the Moon’s terminator.
Then I had another play and made a little time lapse video that isn’t so great but it’s still a bit cool.
I’m going to love playing with time lapse and other cool features more. I hope you guys like these as much as I do!
There was a little bird in our garden, just about able to fly, but not properly. cute little things baby birds are but despite our need to look after them leaving them be is the best thing, nature has to sort itself out without our interference.
I hope he was ok, I like to think he is.
The day is over.
Red skies herald the days end.
As birds find sleep bats flutter against the orange and red hues.
Coolness touches as calmness descends.
The day has ended…
Soon a new day will dawn.
I love lightning, I’ve always wanted to get my own lightning shots and by some convoluted technical fiddlery I got these.
I love the random patterns…
I love the now knowing what to expect…
And the noise, natures theatre of lighning. It’s amazing and these pictures while not perfect are pretty cool and shoes me how randim it is!
I guess if I’m writing it’s not wordless, but it’s nearly wordless and that doesn’t have the same sizzle.
But with Spring nearly over and Summer coming the beauty of nature is everywhere and this is a little celebration.
