Sunrise #43 — talainsphotographyblog

I am a real sucker for a great sunrise or sunset photo, so I had to share this one when I saw it.

A post-lockdown trip back to Bough Beech. The water level is still high and there is little to be seen on the reservoir apart from the resident geese and grebes. A couple of Buzzards drift aimlessly over the back of the north reservoir, but all is very quiet. still it is good to be out again.

I make my way down the road to the old Oast house. a party of Sand Martins and Swallows, my first this year, pass over the road and continue north. A Greater Spotted Woodpecker is the highlight of the birds on the feeders and a get a brief view of the Kingfisher as it darts past the bridge, whilst a Reed Bunting briefly emerges from the Reed-bed. No butterflies yet to be seen, perhaps still a little cold for them. A sparrowhawk drifts over on the way back to reservoir. 34 species is not a bad list for a couple of hours, but it is just good to be out again!

Beautiful Sunset


Last nights sunset in the Town of Maine, Broome County, New York. One of my favorite places to go looking for some good sunset images form time to time on upper East Main road just north of Johnson City.

Some more photos from my archive. This time of a Sunset taken from a train one evening in 2017

A few more pictures from our trip to Walthamstow last week

A nice autumnal day and a visit to Walthamstow Wetlands Nature Reserve in East London. This is a complex of reservoirs, which although still functional are maintained as a nature reserve and open space.

There were the usual selection of bird species present and a couple of Migrant Hawker dragonflies. but even though we didn’t find anything out of the ordinary, it was a lovely walk in the autumn sun.

What a glorious sunset

Through My Lens

On this night in 2018 Fraser Island treated us to a visiting dingo and a blazing sunset reflected in the wet sand.
