I didn’t vote today …

… because I had already sent off my postal vote earlier in the week. Fed up with listening to the Brexit Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) promoting hate not hope candidates.

Mallard

No grey wagtail available at the lily pond today, perhaps because I had a long lens with me. However, this mallard posed for me quite nicely. I experimented with some new Lightroom features in processing these pictures.

A joy to see one of these on the lily pond in the park again. But I must take a longer lens next time!

Lots of these at the moment – almost a weed! After yesterday’s full frame shot using an old (c 25 years) manual focus K-mount lens it’s back to a micro fourthirds.

Aquilegia

This year the rhododendrons and the clematis have performed particularly well, but so far the conditions don’t seem to have suited the aquilegia as well.

Colour on a dreary morning

Blip181

There was some very light drizzle when I was going for my morning outing, and I did not want to have to have to clean the mobility scooter, so I just walked (slowly, with stops to recover) as far as the lily pond in the park, and this enabled me to see this wonderful display in the garden of a house near the park.

High point of the day

That says it all really! Dreary weather, this was all I could find too photograph all day.
