Back to the woods

And in the space of a few weeks this small wooded area is almost a different place. Well, its the same, but colours and shapes have changed a little. I over-photographed the bluebells (if that is possible) and I stalked a bumblebee that really did not want me to take a picture of it. It would hesitate long enough for me to get a good focus and frame and then  ‘buzzzzz’, it was off, not leaving me a millisecond to press the button!

There has been an invasion ( and thus creating a transformation)

Fields of yellow

Rapeseed

Its that time of year again when the fields shine bright yellow. Its not my favourite yellow as its a cold green sort of yellow, not really golden like corn or some other crop. It dominates the landscape though for its short appearance and adds a bit of colour drama…….

Travel Theme : Beaches

MusselburghFor this Travel Theme inspired by http://wheresmybackpack.com/2013/05/10/travel-theme-beaches/ I am sticking to a couple of little pieces of the British Coast that I have spent time on. 

This is Musselburgh beach. Arthurs Seat in the background; the dormant volcano. I sat for a while on a bench . It was January. Cold and grey. I wondered what the people with spades were up to.

Musselburgh This beach is sand and shingle.

I guessed they were digging for lugworms.

RhosneigrRhosneigr Beach (where we spent many holidays as children) is a hive of activity with water-sports
