rough

A rough sea this morning and nice to see the sun (most of my dog-walks are in the dark these days)

Exmoors

15th November 2014, Low Newton, 10am

Phill's PhotoTrail today and we had a pleasant two hours chatting photography. these Exmoor ponies have arrived at Newton Pool recently. I gather they'll graze the reed beds and turn the pool area into a fen.














A bit out of place but I liked this rope on a boat in the boatyard too...

watch both ways

7th November 2014, Howick Shore, 4:30pm



Daisy had spotted something from the top of the bank above the path.


7th November 2014, Embleton Bay, 7am

A characteristically beautiful sunrise


From the top of our dune Daisy watched inland...


...until she spotted two doggy pals on the beach below.

First day of winter?

5th November 2014, Newton Links, 4:30pm

It felt like the first day of winter. Properly chilly, properly empty, properly beautiful.

As the geese fly home for the winter
And the summer's green brightness is gone
And the sun rises late in the morning
With few there to witness the dawn

And with the cold comes blissful peace
No castles of sand remain
A place for those who want to be
Where peace and beauty reigns



Out to the west there was dark colour in the sky


Above us the geese honked their way across the indigo sky


The passing rain clouds reflected on the wet sand





I like the out of focus feel of this shot

orange to red

28th October 2014, Newton Links, 7am

Orange dominated the colour spectrum this morning.


Zoomed in to the brightest part of the sky the effect is even more beautiful


We hung about until the sun rose.



29th October 2014, Low Newton, 7am

In contrast to yesterday the light was towards the red...





The sun was not yet up but the sleeping occupants of this beach hut were missing the amazing light show.

Old Henry

25th October 2014, Newton Links, 7am

Beautiful dawn sky this morning.


Eventually I persuaded Daisy to stand where I wanted her...


Over Football Hole.  The sky changes colour every minute in the run up to sunrise.


Good old Henry.
Henry's well known around here. He's very old so he doesn't walk far but he does like a swim. This morning he was lying on the path waiting for his pals to come back from their walk and pick him up. He's an old sweetie

Honky

23rd October 2014, Embleton Bay, 5pm

The blue sky faded to dusk leaving a band of colour above the sea.


From our lofty perch Daisy surveyed the humps and bumps of the golf course with every sense ready...


As dusk fell we headed home and the geese did too.  They suddenly rose up out of the field they'd been feeding in and headed to their night roosting site. Just after take-off the initially untidy mass of birds formed into skeins for the short, noisy evening flight.
