This week the Church Explorer features St Nicholas Ickford a church I only spent a few moments looking around but have intentions of returning to
Thursday 21st Jan the morning after Biden was inaugurated President of the United States I woke up to this beautiful dawn with the sun just coming up. After looking out the bedroom window and seeing this view I went and got my phone and took a coulpe of photos
Zooming back I captured the houses in the dawn
Hours later a the New Dharma Bums would be getting up to this in California
Sunday was a snow day, first thing in the morning it snowed for a few hours, a welcome sight for some and dread for others. Personally I love seeing snow and have done since I was a kid but with climate change it does not happen often and when it does is not around for long. Once the snow had stopped I had no hesitation in going outside and getting a few photos around the garden before it disappeared.
And the apple tree had a layer along the branches, the bird feeder in the background providing food for Birds when they came down. The snow lasted a few hours but was mostly gone by the afternoon. I'm not sure when we will get more or weather is not so predictable now but at least for a few hours the snow was there to enjoy.
Tuesday I Featured a barn at Manor Farm I stopped quickly beside the Church Entrance and looked over towards the meadows opposite and spotted a superb sky
Turning around This looks towards manor Farm and the barn I was visiting
Heading home I could not help take one more skyview looking back through the village. Happy Skywatch
Take Care everyone
Sunday as it was a nice day I thought I would go out and get a few photos of a barn on the outside of the village. It was once a working barn but with changes in farming did not seem to be used as much. One day on the way home from work I noticed it was being converted and eventually was converted into two office spaces. The barns were empty for a long time before a gym opened up on one side, it became very successful and they soon took on the other part, now the barn is one huge gym. I had long wanted to get a few photos of the place with no one around and Sunday provided the opportunity.
Lockdown here in the UK has it's up's and downs , trying to know what to write is becoming a problem but one day Friday and Skywatch I always know what I can show. This week I thought I would show the sky from by my kitchen door taken over seven days. They were taken from Monday to Sunday at slightly differing times.
Above this was Monday I took the photo about 15:30
Tuesday I went out after 8:30 as the sun was rising
Wednesday I took the photo around 12:30
Thursday there was a slight fog in the air just after 9am
Friday there was a dusting of snow at 8am
Saturday the fog was there at 11:45
Sunday was at least a little clearer at around 12:25. The following day was more interesting so I will feature the same view at different times of the day. Take care and stay safe everyone.
With the pandemic we have going on at the moment I have been reluctant to go out wandering around taking photos so today I thought it would be nice to look around my garden and see how things are developing. I was pleased to see things were starting to grow again.
