One before I go

Off to the hospital tomorrow, hopefully for the last time, so a post to keep things going till I get back. A bit of a mix; couple of webs to start with.

I love watching geese when they begin their descent onto a lake. What starts as a seemingly organised approach, can sometimes look like complete mayhem, as they twist and turn at the last minute.

But the final landing is always perfection.

Next one is from the beginning of September,

 A Brown Hawker. 

 A pair of Migrant Hawkers, from last month too.

And to finish on, the sun going down last night, over my local lake.

Enjoy your day; wherever you are.


  1. The last image is a real beauty. Good luck.

  2. I like the cobwebs, geese landing and the rest of them. Berautiful photos.

  3. Hi Keith,
    Take care mate, and I hope that everything will go fine to the hospital... Your last shot is wonderful with this nice light.

  4. Best wishes for tomorrow Keith and a successful outcome.

  5. Wishing you all the very best for tomorrow, Keith. I hope everything goes well and that you will return feeling much better and can finally enjoy what you love doing most unhampered by health problems.

    Lovely photos again, the web ones are beautiful and the last one with the sun going down is very peaceful.

    I also like the slightly comical one with the geese landing :)

    Take care, Keith my thoughts will be with you.
