I went for a mosey over the hill 2 nights ago (it takes that long for me to upload all my photos on the computer in between my work commitments) and when I say mosey, I mean it was a really slow climb up the hill. My airways didn't appreciate the extra labour I put on them and caused me to audibly wheeze on the climb. A little upper airways spasm which settled on more even ground. It was just on sunset and the llight changes so quickly with every turn . I am particularly drawn to the skeletal forms of trees burnt last summer in the afterglow of the day.
Even the weeds looked pretty with tiny budding flowers
The wild fennel lush and green with new fronds packing the undergrowth
Yellow weeds adorn the path and compliment the warm glow of light bathing the hillside.
The little bird well camouflaged in the twiggy mess was difficult to capture, never staying still for long and shying from movement.
Just in time for Halloween, a dark and sinister looking bird...in this dull light at least.
Towards the ocean the sky is more brilliantly coloured despite the sun having disappeared already.
I took some shots of down the hill towards the city and actually like my movement shots more than the still lights - just a bit of fun.
Have a great day and may it finish with calming skies of brilliant colour. X Mon
