Deer Park

I went to a large park a couple of weeks ago; it was back when we had temperatures over 30 degrees or roughly 93 fahrenheit (for those of you who use that form of measure of heat). Fortunately I went early in the day so I didn’t get the massive heat and I also stayed pretty much in the shade wearing my large brimmed hat and lots of sun cream. ๐Ÿ™‚

I thought I would share some pictures of the deer there.

This young female was keeping cool in the heat, although you can’t see there’s a pond just to the right of the photograph.

A Walk in the Park

Earlier on this week I took a stroll around a park I hadn’t been to since October 2013 with a close friend. ๐Ÿ™‚

I got up really early with my camera so I could get some photographs.

This is as you come through the gate, the sun had not quite risen past the horizon so the mist was still floating about rather eerily! ๐Ÿ™‚

A walk round Bewl Water…

Last week I had a lovely walk round a local reservoir. Its lovely and peaceful and one of my favourite places to think; I also took my little point-and-shoot camera as well! ๐Ÿ™‚

I love poplar trees, they always remind me of people on the march as they’re so straight and always seem to be planted in straight lines. You can really hear the whispering of the wind in them too – it sounds as if they’re sighing! ๐Ÿ™‚ Continue reading

A Sensational Carpet of Spring Bluebells…

Yesterday I came across this sight when I was out in the countryside with my camera!

A carpet of bluebells just appeared as I crested the ridge of a hill I had climbed. ๐Ÿ™‚ย It was sensational to see this, although I was a little disappointed that I only had my little camera with me. Continue reading

Beachy Head…

Last week I felt as though I needed a bit of time and space away from everything, so I took myself down to the coast to where my grandparents used to live and had a pretty good day out at a place called Beachy Head – Eastbourne.

As an introvert I need to have space and time on my own and it was lovely to smell the sea, listen to the crash of the waves, be near to wildlife and just wander around up on the cliffs with my camera taking in the beauty of the place. ๐Ÿ™‚

I took lots of photographs and really enjoyed my walk along the cliffs of this spectacular bit of coastline. Also there is a good visitor center with lots of information about Beachy Head, the wildlife and history of the location ( I have put a link to this at the bottom of the blog ).

As I said my grandparents lived at Eastbourne for a very long time and it was nice to revisit a place that I know and love so well. ๐Ÿ™‚

Eastbourne lighthouse at the bottom of the cliffs. I think it is now unmanned but for many years it stopped ships, trawlers and local fishing boats from running aground during low tides.
