292-365v4 Red Sky in the Morning

The sheep, bottom right, would like to know what he needs to be worried about with the “red sky in the morning, shepherds warning” rubbish! I haven’t tinkered (unusually) with the colours here, it’s what the camera produced, but I must admit I don’t recall the red colours being quite

283-365v4 Slither

Just the barest slither of a sunrise this morning before the clouds closed up and snuffed it our altogether, it works pretty well in a panorama though. A little further along the walk we got this view of the sunrise:

204-365v4 The Sheep are Here

My usual route on my morning walk and this scene had the addition of a large flock of sheep who have joined the usual bullocks that call this meadow home…along with a pair of grey heron the medow is starting to get quite crowded. Of course, there’s my favourite tree

It’s very rare that I photograph people, but I do like occasionally catching our Camera Club members while we are out and about on photowalks as we were last night. We travelled over to Therfield Heath to see the butterflies there. We nearly postponed the evening as the forecast was
