#SundayStills ~ The Amazing #Sky #Nature #Photography

Welcome to the Sunday Stills feature created and hosted by Terri Webster Schrandt at Second Wind Leisure Perspectives

This week’s theme is SKY. It’s incredible how the sky changes, sometimes from one minute to the next.

This was an unusual cloud formation that I hadn’t seen before, reminding me of ripples in the sand as the tide recedes.

Colourful clouds followed by an angry looking sky

I love the clouds here. We were driving along a country lane and I had to stop and take a photo. Luckily there was a handy lay-by. 

This is a fairly familiar sight in the skies above and around us.

Everyone’s eyes were turned skyward for this display by the Red Arrows

The rainclouds had blown over to give us this pretty rainbow.

#SundayStills ~ #Straight Lines Created by Man and #Nature #Bird #Ocean #Photography #Church #Scenery

Welcome to the Sunday Stills feature created and hosted by Terri Webster Schrandt 

The theme for Sunday Stills this week is ‘straight’. The first thing that came to mind was the horizon and, although we know it’s not actually straight, it looks that way to us.

The angle of the sun is casting shadows in straight lines across this wooden walkway.

The Red Arrows display team are leaving perfectly straight smoke trails.

A suspended bridge looks fairly straight…until you walk on it! Especially if someone behind you starts making it sway!

The back of the bench provides a handy perch for a little dunnock.

This Morning’s Walk #Nature #Horses #Donkeys #Flowers #Photography

I decided on the circular route this morning, taking us down the path away from the coast

The hawthorn hedges were a picture, full of buds and flowers

The path leads us onto a quiet back road, up a hill and past a paddock with horses
