Gentle Giants

Yesterday my daughter and I went to Dyfed Shire Horse Farm again and had a lovely time. The Shire horses are so big but so gentle and sweet natured. Even with something so big it can be worth looking closer, and I enjoyed getting some photos of their beautiful eyes as well as stepping backContinue reading “Gentle Giants”

Portraits of flowers

We are fortunate that whatever the weather, whatever the time of year, it is possible to buy fresh flowers. I prefer wild flowers but all flowers are beautiful to me. I decided to take photos of some flowers I bought a couple of weeks back as they are still looking good. Rather than taking photosContinue reading “Portraits of flowers”

Closer and Closer

And what I am always trying to get with my photos is a good focus on their amazing eyes. I creep closer and closer and hold my breathContinue reading “Closer and Closer”

What IContinue reading “Just like me, they long to bee … close to you”

If I had to be specific …

If I had to pick a single thing as my muse, rather than the whole of nature, I’d probably have to choose dragonflies. I get such a thrill getting shots of them, and spend far too long hanging around the village pond – just 5 more minutes – trying to get that perfect shot. TodayContinue reading “If I had to be specific …”

Seems that this is how it has been for some time and it’s set to continue 😦 So I’m back to trying to find new ways toContinue reading “Orchid (again!)”

Persistent Pigeons

The other day when I was taking photos of squirrels, we were getting a bit frustrated with the pigeons who kept trying to steal the nuts. Some of them were very cheeky and tried to sneak nuts right out of our hands. This one in particular was very persistent so I took some photos ofContinue reading “Persistent Pigeons”
