Another lovely day

Got up to bright sunshine again today, with the sky a brilliant blue and larks once more on the wing. Norma the postie failed to bring me my new camera goodies but she did tell me that the north end of the island was white over with snow. Had I been able to take the car out, I would have been off immediately. Alas, until the wires that were chewed by rats are surveyed and fixed as necessary, I am not able to take the car anywhere at all.

Look at those glorious golden yolks - what good girls my girls are.

I had no idea what I should produce for lunch today. The girls are back into production, thus eggs sprang to my mind. I elected to make a curry. Yum, yum.

After lunch the sun was still shining and it seemed ridiculous to waste it and to mount the treadmill, so I put my boots on, grabbed my camera and set off for Lady Kirk. Just for a change I added my 50 mm lens to the camera, and I packed the 70 – 200 mm zoom as well. It sort of worked out that I walked down to the kirkyard with the fifty on, swapping lenses soon after I arrived there, and walked home using the longer lens. The tide was out so I walked back along the sand.

I took around 200 images today, and certainly have something that I can use for next month’s Changing Seasons (or this month’s, depending on how you view matters). I have been reminded how much I love the fifty. Why do I not take it out more often? The 70 – 200 mm lens is challenging for me, I really need a tripod to hold it steady. The only reminder I got there is why I don;t take that one out with me!

I actually wrote the Changing Seasons February post yesterday but it is a little early for publishing – they are scheduled for between the 7th and 15th of the month following, so I set my post to auto publish at the weekend.

Here are just a few that I took today. Nothing brilliant, I’m afraid.

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

I am lagging on the Month in the Country prompts, and lagging badly at that. I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost
