Day 48 – Is It Still Winter…?

The rather cooler weather now we are back in England came as a bit of a shock after our glorious week in Gran Canaria ☀️☀️. However, the crocuses in the garden obviously reckon that Spring is on the way… A chance too to try the new 58mm lens converter for my phone.

Day 33 – Don’t Be Fooled…

… by the sunshine. It’s a lot colder here than it looks – barely above freezing today. In the summer we’ll have the doors open and be sitting outside our little ‘gin palace’ at the top of the garden, enjoying the views and a G&T, but for now it’s all closed up against the elements.

Day 28 – Don’t Be Fooled…

After the really miserable weather yesterday, today has been beautiful and sunny (but cold), culminating in this colourful sunset… However, the forecast is not promising – sleet and snow are expected over the next two days, and with travel disruption expected, my plans for the rest of the week look to be in jeopardy.

Day 26 – Is It Spring Yet…?

Snowdrops are one of the first signs of Spring in the garden, although they appear to have emerged even earlier than usual. They are pretty hardy though, so should survive the cold days still in store for us over the next month or so…

Day 3 – Messing about in boats…

The Shropshire Union Canal runs close by our house, and it’s a great place for a walk. These two boats are frequently to be seen, selling coal, wood and diesel fuel to other boat owners along the canal, although at this time of year there are very few boats to be seen. Life goes on though…

Day 2 – A Chilly Start…

On family transport duties today, I knew I wouldn’t get much chance for photography, so grabbed the opportunity of an early shot soon after sunrise. The sharpest frost yet of the winter, and a low angle, this was taken just a few yards from home using my iPhone fitted with the Moment wide angle converter. Processed in Lightroom Mobile with border etc added using Snapseed.
