I had a bit of a rough night and woke up just a few minutes later than I usually do, but wasn’t too late getting out of the house. I had another encounter with a town fox. I turned on to North Street and the fox was stood under the archway. Luckily, I had my tripod ready with my phone mounted, so it only took a few seconds to get it ready to take a picture. The light is quite low, so it meant a long exposure, flash would have been ineffective. Luckily, as I came to a halt, the fox just sat down, and then after a few seconds started coming towards me and passed within 6 – 10 feet. Quite delightful
I have in the past been inclined to take a bag and a litter picker with me when I go for my morning walk. This was being blown down the street. OK, perhaps I should have picked it up, but not with my hands – sorry! sometimes though, they make interesting pictures.
The Cockle Ponds look rough don’t they? It doesn’t take much of a breeze to whip a bit of a froth. The ponds could be a good place to do a bit of stargazing, the far side is reasonably dark. I wonder if the council would consider turning off some of the street lights at certain times. I’ve had previous experience where a local council has been extremely helpful on a previous occasion.
It was a lovely clear sky this morning and Venus was very bright. It was a very pleasant walk.
