Misty Sunrise in Bridgnorth

I guess it must be that time of year!….. Misty mornings!……:)

I’ve had a busy couple of weeks and have seen little at home or in the surrounding area other than during driving to work, there have been some spectacular sunrises but I’ve had no time to spend walking around our little town to take snaps………

When Chrissy suggested we get up at half past six on the only day off for over a week I didn’t think it was the best idea she’d ever had!……..;))

However, as the following shows it really was worth the effort even though it was damp, and it was cold too!…….

In no particular order these pics were taken from “The Castle Walk”…. some looking south, some looking east towards the early sun, and some looking north (up river and heavy mist!…) or from on and around the Old Bridge………….


Have a good weekend!……… (I’ll be at work again!……:( … )

Atcham & Attingham Park

This post has been a long time coming, our weather has been wet enough to keep me glued to the computer and go out only to work, the camera was getting lonely!…….

Being in need of some shutter action we went to Atcham on saturday, where the River Severn crosses the road, there has been so much rain lately the river was quite high and very dark and moody!………

Attingham Park is only a stones throw away and both of us are National Trust members, it would have been rude not to visit their garden and check out the Bluebells…..;)

& other “Smiley” flowers!…..:)

In the courtyard the Goldfinches were busy too…..

…..and the Blue Tits were having lunch!……….

Even the Orange Tips seemed to be out enjoying our first sight of the sun for a week or more!………

most of our butterflies are much later this year, we don’t normally know which way to point the camera in early May, but it is still very quiet out there….:(

Have a good week!………:-)

Misty Mornings

This week has seen me unexpectedly busy, I would like to thank whoever is responsible for me being “Freshly Pressed” and of course all those who have visited and indeed commented, however, this has left me wanting to reply to more than ten times the number of bloggers that I normally respond to and I therefore offer no apology for the following series of pics that I have pulled out of the archive to save time!……..

Quite apart from the above reason I do actually love misty morning pictures and have been unable to capture any recently due to our poor cloudy conditions!…….

(the last two are HDR & worth a click to see full size!)

Have a Happy Weekend!………:)

Down by The River (again)

This weekend saw us staying close to home again, the weather although fairly clear and bright was threatening rain!……

AN HDR to start, I haven’t felt the need to HDR for ages now, but this scene just lent itself somehow?…. Plenty of Yellow for impact but begging for saturation!……..:)

The river was running quite fast too, murky brown and not at all inviting, don’t you know we have an official drought?……….

Impressive Willow tree ‘eh?…..:))

A little further along the bank Chrissy spotted an “Orange Tip”… quite lucky really ’cause they don’t stay still for long if the sun is out!…..

The clouds moved a little and he opened up!…….

…..but he was soon off, he didn’t fly far though and found lunch just too tempting…….;)

So that’s another couple of miles walked and another card full of images to wade through……..

Have a Good Week!……………
