A Few for the Weekend

A few pictures for the weekend.

A sunrise to kick things off.

A couple of mushrooms; I've no idea of their names though.




 Conwy Castle

A couple of views


Sunlight over the sea

and a few birds to finish with;



 Coal Tit

and finally

 Meadow Pipit

Enjoy your weekend.


  1. Love the flying Nuthatches. All beautiful pictures and a great way to start the day. :)

  2. Thanks Elizabeth.
    (the flying birds were Curlews ;-) )
    Enjoy your weekend.

  3. Great shots.
    The first fungi are Fly Agaric. It must have rained hard on them and washed the spots and colour out..it does that.
    What ISO were the Curlew shot at?
    A grand post.

  4. Hi Keith...Wow these are faboulous photo's ...I love them all ..I am especially drawn to the nuthatch snd the sunrise is gorgeous!!
    Those roads gave me the shivers...especially the one that looks like your going of the end of the earth ...eeeks!!
    Lovely the old castle ..well I guess they are all special ; }}

    Hugs Grace

  5. beautiful! all of it. LOVED the rich colors in the landscape and hills.

  6. Brilliant photos, I love the Curlews flying. And, the Welsh scenery is superb.

  7. Thanks Adrian. I wondered if the first one was Fly Agaric; cheers.
    The Curlew were shot at 640 ISO; it was a lousy, dull day; and the Nuthatch was ISO 2000.
    If I'd gone a week earlier I'd have had sunshine.

    Thanks Grace. I had the shivers driving on some of those roads too lol

    Thank you Theresa. Some lovely green countryside there.

    Thank you Bob. The Curlew were coming in off the estuary, as the tide came in. Over 300 of them. Never seen so many in one place before.
