His name’s David, of One Foote Closer, and he’s got this great idea for a challenge, about taking 10 pictures; the same, or differently.
Take a look here; he explains far better than I could lol
The signs of autumn seem to be around everywhere here, at the moment.
I took a wander up Ivinghoe Beacon yesterday; a bit tiring climbing to the top,
but worth it for the view when you get there.
Nearly everything is taking on a golden brown colour, and the hedges are just bursting with berries of all sorts.
There weren’t many birds to be seen; far too windy for that. A very large flock, or charm, of Goldfinches though, mostly juveniles, going from bush to bush, and settling on the many thistles that have gone to seed.
Some lovely blue, bell shaped flowers too; but too windy for any pictures. I did find one sheltered spot though, and saw some of these growing there.
Not sure what they are, but very small and beautiful.
From the beacon, I made my way to Wilstone reservoir, at Tring, but again, much too windy to see many birds. Even the Reed Warbler that mimics the Cetti’s, was quiet.
I took a walk round the reservoir, and came to the field of corn that I took some pictures at last week. It looked very different yesterday; harvest time.
Couldn’t resist a cliché shot, but it didn’t quite come off. Wrong lens.
A more natural looking shot.
Despite the efforts of the wind, and the lack of birds, it was still an enjoyable morning. And when I got home, a nice visitor to the sheltered garden;
a Migrant Hawker, taking in the rays of the sun.
Enjoy the rest of the week.
