The thing about this week is that the mornings are getting noticeably darker. It will soon be dark for the bulk of my walk. this will cause problems for the salinity readings from the cockle ponds. Perhaps I should get a watertight container to bring a sample home to do the measurements here.
For the most part, I haven’t had any problems doing the evening post this week. Tonight, my intention was to sit down and review the photographs. Definitely, my favourite I think is this one;
You’ll have seen it before, this is a symptom of one of the problems that the ponds face – being used as a litter bin. So very sad that there is so little respect for the place. Here’s another;
One of my friends referred to this as a serene picture, and I have to say I agree with him, there’s no editing of this picture other than a little cropping, the water really was that still. But, once again it’s a sad picture of disrespect. Somebody has a habit of throwing these things in the water. Now, I did see something. It did involve a group (3 – 4) people, and a shopping trolly on the edge of the pond, but then they walked away. Pointless my taking a picture, I was the other end of the pond, Just too far away.
Doesn’t the bird jump out at you? Surprisingly, the day after I took this picture I watched a video from one of my YouTube subscriptions this particular showing was about the positive impact of including birds in photo’s . I like this one.
This is another one. I tried it in B&W;
There’s plenty of texture in the mono picture, but this is one of those occasions where the colour versions works better for me.
The weather hasn’t stopped me from walking this week. I had a bit of an encounter yesterday lunchtime, luckily I had a brolly with me, and I needed it. There was a very brief shower this morning, a few seconds that’s all. It was fine.
A good successful week of walking. A good and mostly successful week of writing. Let’s see how next week goes.
