Week 52: Heswall

Friday, April 29th, 2011

And… here is the last photo of this series!

I first saw photos of the boats near Heswall on Pete Carr’s blog, and planned to visit the place on my next visit to Wirral to try and photograph them myself. But I just never got into that neighbourhood really, until a couple of weeks ago.

It wasn’t quite sunset yet (at 10.30 in the morning), and there wasn’t actually any sun at all really. Just a bunch of clouds waiting to rain. And they did, starting with a drop or two right as we started taking pictures, and full on rain within about 20 minutes.

So, now I know, to get really interesting skies, I just need to wait till it almost rains! ;-)

So, after this 52, what’s next? I don’t know yet. I do have some ideas, but haven’t made up my mind yet. As soon as I do, there will be a blog post about it :-)

Week 50: Magnolia

Saturday, April 16th, 2011

This one was taken in Ness Gardens last week Friday.

Week 49: Cherry blossom

Wednesday, April 13th, 2011

Four days late, I think I broke my own record there :-) My excuse: I was travelling, and taking lots of photos!
I’ll be posting more over the next couple of days, but this is my entry for last week, taken last Friday not very long before sunset.

Week 48: More blossom

Sunday, April 3rd, 2011

Yesterday we had a very warm day here, 20-24 degrees Celcius. Today’s a regular 14 again, to remind us that it’s actually still spring, and not summer. So… here’s another blossom of which I haven’t the faintest clue what tree it’s on.

Actually, it’s not even really on a tree.
Here’s a photo of how it looks in its surroundings. (it’s the white stuff on the right):

Week 47: Coltsfoot

Wednesday, March 30th, 2011

I took these during a short picnic break on our cycle trip this Sunday. The weather was gorgeous, we’re hoping it will be just as good when we go for the ‘real’ thing: cycling to our camping destination this summer.

Week 46: Blossom buds

Sunday, March 20th, 2011

I think it’s still early really, but some of the trees in my neighbourhood have already started blossoming. I’m not good at determining the name of the tree they’re on though, so I can’t tell whether they are cherry, apple, pear, or maybe even something completely different.

Most of the trees still look like this:

I know from last year though, that their flowers will be the white/light pink type with lots of petals per flower.

One that I didn’t photograph today (but did two years ago) is in near full bloom already, and then there’s one that’s got a lot of buds still, but also some flowers already:

If anyone can tell me which is which, I’d be grateful :-)
