Default Springtime and Summer Evening

As the weather in the UK has been so awful lately - temperatures 6C - 10C (45F - 50F), wind and rain - I thought I'd share the view from the back garden on 4th May, the weather was a bit better then.

The other picture is the same view one evening last August. The back of my house faces due west, so I get plenty of opportunity to take lots of sunset photos, which I do.

Super shots of a lovely view!! That looks like a great area to photograph.
Really nice bright colors of springtime that you captured, as well as the soft evening pastels of the second shot.

Do you ever get any water birds visiting that small pond in the foreground?

Thanks Steven.

There are resident Moorhens in the pond. They also come into the garden, sometimes very close to the house where the feeders are. There are occasional Mallards and very occasionally a Grey Heron. There should really be a lot more open water there, but the Bog Bean is gradually taking over

The meadow beyond the pond has lost all its dandelion flowers and the farmer has cut the grass for silage - it's one of the fields for his dairy herd. In the winter, there are over-wintering sheep in there, probably from the Welsh hills.

Thanks Harj.

As you can imagine, the view changes quite a bit during the year, but that springtime view is hard to beat. We hardly ever get snow here, but it's quite interesting if we do. Get some nice sunsets, though. I might post one or two from my archive - my old E-20P was pretty good at sunsets too.
