This afternoon I went to Killerton with my family and had a lovely walk in bright sunshine – which was far from ideal for photos. We did find this robin turning on the charm and posing for me!
And then William and Louisa agreed to share their raisins, so my son tempted Mr Robin by putting some on a branch.
Jen H. says ‘This week, share with us your photos of twinkling light. You will need to find a light source and a reflective surface in order to capture a twinkle, but those are the only limitations. Your photo could be the sparkle of an ornament, as in the photo I’ve shared. Perhaps it is a crisp catchlight in the eyes of a loved one, or the millions of twinkles in the waves of a body of water as a sunrise’s first rays appear. Maybe you’d like to try your hand at nighttime photography, and capture the sparkle of stars. Where there is light, there will be a twinkle.’ In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Twinkle.” This is Cathedral Close in the very centre of Exeter, on a cold winter’s night. I hope you enjoy the shimmering glow. Join in at https://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_photo_challenge/twinkle/
The last of sunlight
fading into golden dusk
such mellow splendour
Gustav Holst was born in Cheltenham, England in 1874 into a family of musicians. A rather sickly child, he grew up learning to play several instruments, including trombone, in the hope that it would help his asthma. He taught music throughout his life, but is best known for his Planets suite. I’m sure you will agree he is gone but not forgotten. Holst died of heart failure in 1934 and his ashes were interred at Chichester Cathedral, Sussex. My photo for the challenge is of a memorial stone in the cathedral.
I don’t know if this link will work properly, I’ve never tried to add a you tube before.
