Mainly the moon

As the title of the blog says this is mainly about the full moon that signals easter; but there are also fragments of the sunrise, birds, blossoms and the valley.

But first the moon - photographed in the early morning this morning - heading towards the horizon through the trees.

The sun was rising and the moon was setting as you can see from the panorama photo.

By the time I reached Treehaven Way the sun was blazing through the lower branches of the pine trees.

Some startling colour and forms in the blossoms.

And the Magpies who want to keep one company; but also scurry off when you focus on them.

  4. Hi MC, V and C - sorry it has taken me a bit of time to get around to responding to your visit and comments which are always welcome. There was not a lot of time to spend at the computer in the lead up to the open studio and preparing for some easter visitors. It is a lovely experience to share some images of our neck of the globe with art friends; as I also enjoy seeing how seasons and the environment changes in yours. Go well and enjoy the seasons and life. B
