Checking Photographs

Friday, November 23rd 2018

Finding photographs for the web site, displays and blogs often means looking back through many that I have taken.  The lake changes with the seasons, daily and sometimes even through the day.  Sunshine and stillness are good for reflections, no matter what time of year.

Spring, I think my favourite season, shows the surroundings of the lake clothed in all the greens you can imagine, with hints of colour here and there.

By this time of year bugs and beasties are far and few between but there may be something lurking somewhere.  I did not think that this Kidney Spot Ladybird was in a sensible place.  It was covered in water droplets, one quite large one.

Water droplets make good photographs, even though the apple looks a little worse for wear.

Checking the photographs I nearly always come across some of the ponies.  They now have thick fluffy coats.
