Carnations and Crochet

Little Tea CupDecided to start crocheting again. I tried a red panda but it didn’t really work out, and I was unsure if it was the pattern, or me, so I’ve crocheted a pattern from a book I’ve used before. I’ll give the red panda another go later. Carnation

Woodland Walks – 11 September

Woodland Walk (Silhouetted Trees)
Silhouetted Trees

This afternoon (late afternoon!) we went for a little walk – just for an hour or so. We went to Eckington Woods and it was lovely and warm, but there was a definite coolness in the air. The light was lovely ^_^ and some leaves have started to turn, but most of them are still green… for now!

The Start of Autumn

Today is the official start of autumn. So to celebrate my favourite time of year I’ve decided to take a photo each day throughout September and October.
When I went out today I limited myself to one lens. So my kit was:
• Pentax k3
• Tamron 90mm macro lens 2.8

Sun on the leaves I really liked the way the sun was hitting these leaves as I walked into the woods. I had wondered if the sun would still be too harsh, given that it was August yesterday, but I didn’t need to worry. Acorn

Who can resist an acorn!

In the Woods I thought the tree on the left looked a bit dark and spooky. So naturally I had to take a picture. Dragonfly

I was able to get up close to this little fellow who just sat there minding his own business. There was a really massive bright yellow dragonfly buzzing around, but unfortunately he didn’t stop still so I couldn’t catch him.

Tomorrow I was thinking about getting up and shooting the sunrise. Then I checked the weather and it said it would be misty (This is fine), then I checked the weather again and it says no mist just heavy clouds. I suppose I will have to monitor it!

Sunflower

After a bit of a turbulent week in terms of weather and house related things, I finally managed to get out of the house and shoot my sunflowers.

Sunflowers are my favourite flower of all.
Sunflower!

Gross and somwhat massive spider eating his tea

Gross and somewhat massive spider eating his tea // 16 09 14259 // 365

My goodness me do I hate spiders. I saw this bad boy (he’s massive – stuffing a fly into his mouth in this shot) setting up shot at the end of the garden and decided that it wasn’t worth it; he could just have the garden. All of it.
Then I decided to be brave and photograph him. So here we are. A photo that I took, that freaks me out. Good work!
