Yesterday the DP went off with friends on a photographic jaunt. Up the Dee Valley. Sometimes I regret I cannot walk far.
After walking through here. This is what you see.
The DP takes his camera everywhere with him. Along the way to the supermarket he will stop and take a look.
He usually makes a detour to Cairnbulg. A Curlew. We get fields full of them at this time of year.
One of my favourite birds (to paint as well) the Oyster Catchers. Another painting planned.
I have got three on the go at the moment. Watercolours are exciting, but one does have to show some restraint! As in wait for the paint to dry.
So, the above is the three on the go. May look like some murky rubbish to you. I have Sanderlings at the top left, playing in the surf. Two Redshanks spiralling down, playing, on the right, and there is a whole row of OysterCatchers with an extremely frothy sea behind them and the cliff edge they are on.
Constrained by not much daylight and paint drying. Aaaargh.
We had a lovely Open House Saturday. Sadly no photographich evidence. The DP was doing the food and I was opening the wine. And drinking it.
Tomorrow is Hogmanay. The Lighthouse Museum is catering for a wedding. The DP is the Official Photographer. I have been invited as the bride and groom didnt want me to be alone on Hogmanay. Well bless. No way am I going to invade someones special day.
Best wishes to all.
