Lazy Sunny Afternoon

sunny_afternoon-201502A view across a lake via a boat which looks like it isn’t going anywhere in a hurry, on a lovely sunny Winter’s afternoon. The sunshine was very welcome on this chilly February day as we strolled around, spotting a variety of birdlife – dipping in and out of hides for a different perspective. Here we sat on a deserted verandah sipping afternoon tea from the stove we had brought along. Happy days ………

    • Thank you very much, Ken. There was a lot of blue and gold in this place on that sunny day – the water reflected the blue sky wonderfully, and the reeds, which were everywhere, shone gold in the light.


  1. You carry a stove around?! Now that’s a really great idea! You may have just revolutionised my early morning Levels forays! OMG, I could even get into frying bacon – and maybe fried bread and tomatoes too – oh what golden horizons have just reared, sizzlingly, up into view!!! There might not of course be any time for photography but hell, go with the flow! THANK YOU!!!
    And I like the picture too – all those yellow-browns, and the wattle fence and the boat out front, and all that blue coming in from the right but not quite reaching right to the left – and those silhouetted twigs top right – very good stuff, my friend!
    And I’m still bandaged the same, but all is healing wonderfully. A


    • Ha, ha, yes – a stove is a handy thing to have when out for the day. You can get some sweet compact lightweight ones which fold up into a small bag. There’s something very satisfying about being self-sufficient in comestibles when out and about. I can just see you on one of those damp misty mornings, frying up a hearty breakfast before venturing off with the camera! If you want any recommendations for kit, let me know 🙂

      I’m pleased you like the image. It was an unexpectedly sunny day – the weather forecast earlier showed a cloudy blob in our region! Good to hear you are healing well my friend.


    • I really must schedule an outing with you–and M–at the earliest opportunity, to take advantage of the opportunity for a Full UK Breakfeast (no, that’s not a typo!) in the field. Only, please, not too much fat in the bacon…


    • Winter weather in this part of the UK has been quite uneventful thus far. Mild and cloudy early on followed by a couple of overnight frosts, one morning of snow, then cold biting winds. Thankfully none of the floods of previous Winters. I hope the snow stops soon for you.
