This forum is being weird about updates. Ighten, I love the dramatic colours and lighting in that stormy sky and landscape!

Personal taste, I'd have zoomed *out* a bit from the fisherman pictures, to get more open water around him and more of the backdrop.

A few recent sightings:

 Hyperactive, nervous sort, that one. Didn't sit still for portraits. There are a pair of them there, but I only saw the one that morning.

 More the quiet, contemplative type ... and I'm seeing a "missing image" icon as I type this.

 This is what velociraptors really looked like. Seriously.

A tree sparrow:

 No ordinary house sparrow.

Visited Monty Don country today (Herefordshire) and took a few shots that you may find interesting.
Unfortunately, because of forum technical problems I can only post a slideshow.

Sadly the link didn't work either!
I'll re-post another time.

PS, I've found if you right click on the 'link' and click 'go to copied address' it will open the link.

..I think one thing America is good at, is carving roads into mountainsides so we can drive up them.... if Ben Nevis was over there, I'm sure we could just drive up it by now...

here are some photos of photos, first taken about 15 years ago , so excuse the quality....

first one, somewhere on the Montana/Wyoming border... high above the tree line


from top of Scott's Bluff...overlooking the North Platte River valley...a quite exciting drive to the top...through all sorts of fascinating geological shapes...


..view from the other side... there's a town down there somewhere..


..Bison, in the Yellowstone National Park with Campanula rotundifolia...

These are the shots taken yesterday in Herefordshire, as above. I'm afraid they're cropped rather heavily to remove cars, lampposts, satellite dishes, and so on.

Glad top see normal service seems to be restored.

I have not posted for quite a while but thought i would add the progress of my garden, first pic is June last year (my first year with the garden) and second is from this week.

 I am stood slightly further down on the second as I have a small greenhouse at the top corner now.

This is the pergola i made at the end of last year and the 2 Wisterias I am training to go over the top
