It’s rare to see anything of an eclipse this far north so I made the best of it.  The temperature plot from my weather station clearly shows the temperature drop.  This image shows the shadow of my colander and every round hole demonstrates an crescent-shaped shadow on one of my bins.  Magic!

Barbed Wire and Grass (02 Dec 2014)

Santa came early in 2014, as I treated myself to a new long zoom lens.  I took some test shots in the village with it and the older long zoom lens and was delighted with the image quality it produced.  I also rather liked some of the shots I took.  One of the barbed wire shots has a tiny spider next to one of the barbs.
