A Day in the Meadows

The Coming of Evening

“The best laid schemes o’ mice an’ men gang aft agley” said Robert Burns, and wasn’t he so right! Everyone’s plans for 2020 must have changed drastically with lockdowns and restrictions almost throughout the year, certainly mine have as all my planned trips away have disappeared into the Covid mist. Hopefully, they will reappear next year but time will tell. But when life throws these curve balls at you, you just have to adapt, and sometimes that can bring some pleasant changes.

One of the memorable things for me this year has been a wonderful spring and summer when I have taken shorter, more local walks, and I have especially enjoyed spending time just mooching through meadows with my macro lens. And of course, with quite a lot of emphasis on rewilding open spaces, you don’t need to go far to find some meadows either.

So this is just a photographic blog post with some of the images I have captured this year, a kind of virtual ‘Day in the Meadows’ πŸ™‚ ! Some are what I would have once called ‘record shots’ of wildlife, and some are more artistic in nature. Hope you enjoy wandering with me.

Oh, and just as an aside, I have just noticed that my copyright symbol still shows the year as 2019 – oops, I guess I forgot to change it at the beginning of the year πŸ™‚ !

I hope you are all keeping well, and thanks for stopping by and reading my ramblings.

Stay safe!

Until next time,
