#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 ~ What does Freedom mean to you? #Landscape #Nature #Pets #Wildlife

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

This week’s theme is Freedom.

At the moment, freedom to me would mean getting out and about and going wherever I please. Won’t be possible for a while.

Freedom of the skies

A herd of Kashmiri goats are free to roam on the Great Orme

During lockdown they took advantage of the lack of people in town and decided to pay several visits en masse.

Finn loves being free to run off lead, especially on the beach.

And I love being free to spend time in this place without a voice following me around saying ‘haven’t you got enough books!’

Barter Books is a fantasic second hand bookshop housed in what used to be a railway station, with many, many shelves of all kinds of books, real fires, a cafe and seating areas scattered around. I really hope they can keep trading.

#SundayStills ~ WaterWorld: The Beauty of Our Planet #Nature #Landscape #Scenery #Photography

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

This week’s theme is WaterWorld, which I took literally and chose to show the beauty of water in our world. From the vast and mighty oceans…

to rivers winding their way through the countryside

to bodies of inland water, be they lakes or reservoirs

and waterfalls…

Waterfalls, river, lakes and ocean

And even a moat around a castle

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
