  1. Managed to sneak into the city this morning for exercise after my physio appointment Most of this is relatively new with the old Municipal Bank in the centre which has been acquired by Birmingham University

  2. A whole year today since the first lockdown !! If we had been told we would still be here a year later with cases increasing again, at least on the continent, we would have never have believed it possible ... and the gradual realisation of just how serious this turned out to be was probably the best coping mechanism we had when I look back on it all . Had we known then just how long we would be affected by this, many more may have found the stress unbearable . Sadly it has changed the lives of many.... and today I look back on the awful statistics world wide and try to reme

  3. Godrevy Beach, last evening. I didn't think the sky was going to be friendly, but this emerged about 10 minutes after the sun dropped and lasted for about 5 only.

  4. Finally got a chance to go out and test my new FZ2000 last night. Wanted to see what Fambridge would be like for a sunset, and also have a try at longer exposures with the built-in ND filters. Got a few shots that I'm quite pleased with; I think I might still need an additional ND filter for some of the longer exposures I want to try.

  5. First warm weather visitor this year - found on a stone at the edge of my small pond - so may have taken a dip but managed to get onto dry land. Encouraged onto the moss at the edge of the pond to warm up. Paul.

  7. It has been particularly quiet this week on the Forum however that hasn't detracted at all from the quality of this weeks POTW .. With some truly outstanding detail this week's winner is Paul's Honey Bee.. Any one of this fabulous set would be worthy of the title but this is my favourite and winner ... Phenomenal detail and I love the moss in focus in the foreground too. A hearty Back slap Paul ... awesome photography again ...

  8. My turn to choose POTW again and in my opinion there was really only one contender this week, so congratulations to Paul for a second consecutive POTW with "The Night Demon": Well done Paul - an incredibly sharp and colourful macro image! Full thread here.

  11. I spotted some movement in the budding climbing hydrangea, but was damned if I could make anything out with the naked eye. Then, looking through the 600mm lens, what I thought was a leaf turned out to be a Greenfinch. I managed two grab shots, one about to flit and the other half way through a flit. Believe me, more luck than judgement

  17. Am not very active recently, not due to Covid restrictions, but due to a hip problem, ok driving and yesterday was nice and sunny, so did a cruisy drive to the Bass Coast. Too many people around for me to walk the dogs on the beach, because it is school holidays here, but I did stop at a couple of laybys where you can see the beach. It was quite breezy and fresh. You can see the path down to the beach on the right, but it was too steep for me.: A closer view of that interesting bit of cliff that is left standing, the dark spot near the top is not somebody climbing it, but there

  18. So many great landscapes this week that I had to choose one of them for POTW. I really liked MattGrey’s “Godfrey Beach” and “Golitha Falls”, Rybear’s “Ilanrhidian Church” photos and Longman’s “Cowslips and Clouds” and decided on Stravinsky’s “Centenary Square” for POTW. Like others, I appreciated the perfect symmetry of the buildings and their reflections.

  21. Just came across these. The first two are of the market in Nizwa which is a small town on the edge of the Arabian Desert in Oman. As you will see, they like a pot in Nizwa! The third is a fort in the same town.

  22. ............Sort of. This lockdown is providing a lot of ideas for idle hands. A means of advertising the site while we are out and about....................a sort of business card, provided as a PDF that can be downloaded, with a page that has multiple business cards, based on the image below, that can be printed out at each members leisure and handed out to those that show an interest. Thoughts?

  24. Every so often I meet a lovely family as I shop at our local outdoor market... theirs and my favourite stall is the baker’s where they sell `French pastries and bread... ... I received full permission to take portraits of all the children individually and then as a whole family group.... I met them again this morning.... I requested permission to place one of the portraits on here......this wonderful family have three of the most photogenic offspring....I feel so lucky to be given this opportunity.... This is just one of my favourites .... FUJI

  25. I was actually looking for spiders late last night, but there were none to seen (was hoping for an early orb weaver of some sort) so no luck there, but I did find a wasp on the apple tree. Not sure what wasps usually do at night - or where they normally go (to sleep?) but she was quite a way inside the branches of the tree which meant some cropping required (and some aggressive NR to keep the background under control). Came out pretty well in the end but she is one of our more feared insects, and not one I like to meet by day, let alone as a night demon...

  27. Another one for my on going project. Also I thought I’d add my digital contact sheet along with this one. The white borders will be going from the earlier images and there’s a few on there which don’t fit in.

  29. ...Just what is lurking around in the garden whilst you're pottering about indoors making a cup of hot chocolate ... Found 8 photos on my trail camera this morning it's the first time I've placed it in the front garden near the pond and just the second time I've used it at all ... I didn't have the video option on ... it triggered at 11.58 PM last night .

  31. This is probably a sawfly larva that is about 4mm in length. It constantly flicked it's head as it moved around the crevice of a leaf. Near impossible to land in focus shot but I'm a trier if nowt else!

  45. A very telling post, Polly - thank you. Reading that has made me angrier at my brother than I was. He is one on those conspiracy theorists who believe Coronavirus is no more than a common flu caused by the 5G roll out and all the reported Covid deaths are no more than fake news. A more selfish, ungrateful person I have yet to meet, as he really does take the biscuit. Your post has restored a sense of balance and I too, am counting my blessings - I just want to get back to normal, while I still have the wherewithal to enjoy normality.
