A storm is brewing.


A storm is brewing.

WWT Martin Mere.
The temperature dropped, the sky turned an angry colour, the wind got up and then the Heavens opened . . . and there was a lone man laughing in a hide.
Just looking over my shoulder for the men in white coats . . . . lol!

another incredible photo! this would look brilliant up on the wall printed up very large, as would the other picture.

12 Feb, 2012

 

But wow, what a photo you captured! The colour of the sky against the white of the birds is stunning. I love it when the sky turns that colour!

Another brilliant photo Muddy.

Great photo Muddy and don't swans wings make a weird sound when they go over too. This is a great start for a spooky story. Who was the person laughing in the hide and why was he laughing? Was he possessed by the evil spirit of the Mere or did he have another reason for the jollity?

Thank you Rose.
Thank you Linda . . yes, if you're lucky to have one or more fly over you, it is a wonderful experience to see and hear. Remind me not to ask you to tell me a bedtime story though . . aaaarrgh!!! :-))

Did you ever read 'The snow goose' by Paul Gallico?

15 Feb, 2012

 

No I haven't Sticki . . is it any good?

15 Feb, 2012

 

im not quite sure which age group it was intended for but its a lovely story and i think based on real life
im not sure how much to tell you cos i wouldnt want to spoil it.
a man befriends a snow goose and its set around dunkirk time.

15 Feb, 2012

15 Feb, 2012

Looks perfect, beautiful and effortless. I bet you suffered for it!

20 Feb, 2012

 

If I hadn't been sitting in a hide Pimp, it would have been a very soggy experience!

20 Feb, 2012

 

The Swans could be removed and it would still be a beautiful picture. In my Fav file.
