and finally for 2019 ....

Well, the end of the year is almost upon us and we are all looking forward to the warmer weather. However, there are still things to photograph and keep us venturing out in the cold! Well wrapped up of course. On the 8th of December I captured this rainbow over the Layham Church as I was setting off on my morning walk. Of course this would be a morning I had no camera on me - how could you I thought. However the mobile phone came to the rescue so I was reasonable pleased with the result. I have never seen a rainbow over the church before, and I have walked past it hundreds of times. Today was the right time and day - it lasted a very few minutes, and then was gone. A chance call into East Bergholt church on my way home from Flatford on 11th gave me the opportunity to capture the window dedicated to John Constable. A one time resident of the village. Lights of another sort as I captured (hand held) these wonderful christmas lights in Hintlesham village. Difficult

It must be Autumn in 2010

Autumn is a beautiful time of year despite the imminent threat of Winter round the corner. Some years we have masses of colour, but in others, the leaves are off the trees before we can appreciate them.  Here are a few images taken in 2010, and mostly in close proximity to where we live, starting  with some leaves. Leaves still on the trees, and below are some that are on the ground. Steps This is the time of year that we see the most fungi, although they can be spotted at varying times in the year. The reasonably common  Fly Agaric (Aminita muscaria) Another common one, the Shaggy Parasol (Macrolepiota procera) Perhaps we don't see these quite as much, the Crested Coral (Clavulina coralloides) The Brett with reflections of the autumnal colours. Mist - beautiful, but a hazard if you are on the road! More reflections on the Brett Drips of moisture on the Rose hips The local church of St
