With a  camera I can have a thousand snapshots of snippets of beauty ,

as the sunsets’ colours horizon kidnaps me from other reality.

A constantly evolving painting of the rays reflections across the sky.

 

We’ve been treated to some seriously awesome sunsets over the past few days in sunny Suffolk.

Looking forward to the next one this afternoon :-)

A beautiful “Comma”  enjoying the Suffolk sunshine. The comma shaped markings that this butterfly  gets its name from are on the underside of the wings.

“……the eye of the beholder”

Herring Gull by Scott Guiver

Herring Gull by Scott Guiver

I’ve just returned to the sunny climes of East Anglia after living in Devon for a few months. During my time in the West Country , it was very obvious that a lot of strong feeling existed in relation to the “annoying” and “thieving” pirates of many a seaside resort.  I could certainly emphathise with the loss of chips and ice-creams to the adaptable and opportunistic gulls which plundered these delicacies from the unguarded and unsuspecting. However , I always managed to find humour in watching the behaviour of these birds and always found beauty in their aesthetics . So, I’ve posted a close-up of a Herring Gull in Salcombe , purely through admiration.

This picture was inspired by a beautiful friend who I met on WordPress about 6 months ago!  Thank you Christy !!! ;-)

The image of the Leopard has been recreated from a photo using vinyl . The eyes are chromed , so that they catch the light and follow you around the room :-)
