Good Days

Yesterday was a Good Day. I had the grass cut and a wheelie bin filled with cuttings before midday (the bin men came at 2pm), three lots of washing on the lines and phone calls made and visiting friends coffeed all before dinner after which a friend visited. I didn't even have time to blog and few emails left my computer either. The weather was superb if a little chilly in the clear air but by the end of the afternoon the clouds were coming. I was visited by a family of Stonechats and I thought the photos of the female worth a showing. In the early evening the mainland mountains about 60 k (37 miles) away were astonishingly clear and I managed the following unusual photos taken with my lens at full telephoto - apologies for the noisy sea.

  1. Wow, those mountains look almost surreal. They're beautiful. I love that bird on the wire, too. As I write down the words "bird on the wire" Leonard Cohen's song with that title comes to mind. Had it on one of my first LP records ...

  2. That's a pretty little visitor to your garden! You certainly are having some lovely weather, aren't you? I think Dawn Treader's description is perfect, those mountains do look surreal. Great photos, GB.

  3. I've never heard of a Stonechat. She is a very pretty little bird.
    Love the mountain, cloud, sea shots too!
