Hothfield Common 2

Saturday, April 19, 2014

Carrying on from yesterday with only trees and shrubs.

Some nice old trees seem to be doing well with our cold Spring

Have a seat

On our way out

That is it for Hothfield, maybe another visit in Summer

    The spring light in these photos is absolutely beautiful and the depth of field in that last photo of the tree trunk makes me think I can reach out and touch it. Thank you.

Hothfield Common

Friday, April 18, 2014

This is really a lovely place to visit and I have not been there for a while. This time was a little early for the wildlife but there is plenty else to see.

It is a boggy heathland but a lot of it is dry and easy to walk on. My friends and I like to amble round with the cameras and this day the sun was warm and the wind light.

The entrance

Open heathland

I have some more to process when I have time, so watch this space

Close together

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

Last night the Moon and Mars where quite close but not close enough to get in the same frame.

Now the Moon is an easy target but Mars is the size of a in prick. It took a lot of effort to get any picture of of Mars but I did manage it in the end

Now that was easy

Find Mars

This may help a bit.

I will try again tonight weather permitting

    I wondered what Planet that was. I too got a pic of the Moon and Mars. I will post my blog later.
Great shot of the Moon!

The Moon

Monday, April 14, 2014

Last night I had a nearly full Moon, so out came the camera.

Lens 300 at F8 at 640

A better picture than the night before

Fighting war wounds

Sunday, April 13, 2014

Around the years 2001 / 2 I had a fight with a HP 20" monitor and lost. This compressed my spine and give trouble from time to time. I means that when I sit down I have trouble getting up and lifting heavy weight.
This weekend it went on the attack again, so sitting down or rather getting out of a chair is painful. This time I have not needed any painkillers, so it is not as bad as last time.

I have managed a trip out and managed some pictures.


These are all in my garden

I manage this last night but not my best as my telescope is heavy and I can't set it up until the back is better.

    Tiny Tim's song was one of my dad's favourites, Hickok-Haley!

Hope your pain is easing now TCanno.

    Your flowers are beautiful. Wish they were in my garden. Oh my word, I showed my Hubby your Tulips, now he is singing "Tip Toe Through The Tulips" lol. Like your Moon shot. Did you hear about the "blood moon"? I know we will see it here in the states. Hope you can as well. Time to google hehe
