Sunday just happened to fall on New Years Day this year and, never to be deterred, we had our usual walk. About 9 miles along the coast from Holywood to Bangor, I must admit I could feel the holiday excess eating taking a toll!
As usual here are a few snaps taken along the way.
Some of my usual attempts to capture birds in flight or otherwise.
A hooded Crow
A normal black crow picking through the rock pools for sea snails .
and most unusual, these two different types of crow were together. First I’ve ever seen this.
Perfect wind for little sailing on the lough.
Hawthorn still carrying it’s harvest.
A nice mixture of moss, grass, heather, sedum etc growing in among the rocks. Natures kusamono .
Most important on a good walk is good company. My two brothers..
My mate Stephen, out with his new camera. Watch this space for his new bonsai blog coming very soon 🙂
and lets not forget my two best mates, Smudge and maggie 🙂
