Brilliant photos! I love that first one - are those ducks or geese migrating?
What kind of camera? Do tell. Beautiful photos.
Ladyfi, i'm guessin those are starlings. And maybe i need to get out more but they look like Bob Dylan in profile to me.
That was a fine silhouette made by birds. Maybe the silhouette could be Enya singing that lovely tune.
Happy birthday Neil - beautiful photographs and Enya singing - sublime!
Serene and peaceful shots! Enya makes any video or photo more beautiful.Happy birthday!
Happy Birthday, Neil! What a great birthday present! Really gorgeous shots, love the video and, yes, Enya does indeed add to the beauty! Enjoy!Sylvia
Camera, shmamera, Neil. I thought the spanking was just between you and I. ;-)Naldo, I see Bob Dylan too know that you mention it, how freaky!Lovely post. :-)
Thank you all for the birthday wishes. The top pic is indeed starlings doing that magical swirly thing they do in the evenings.Woylinski - The camera is a Sony Alpha 230. Very much entry range but a big step up from my Panasonic compact. So I'm having lots of fun with it.Glad you enjoyed the Enya tune.... it's one which holds a special significance for me.And is that Eilan Donan at the end of the vid?
mtb - there's spanking and special spanking......get my drift? ;-P
Happy birthday Neil, your pictures are great especially the starlings. I hope you have many more happy days with your new camera, I'm looking forward to seeing more lovely shots.
Looks like that new camera is capturing the beauty of your world just fine!
