So it came to pass that I was manning a cycling promotion stall at Durham University, out in the open with a freezing wind and intermittent showers. We were sheltering under a gazebo which suddenly took flight and ended up down a hill, but I then noticed the rainbow above Durham Cathedral....

This has really moved and touched me.

I'm not a bird photographer - and certainly not a bird in flight photographer = but I was out on Sunday and noticed a black headed gull hovering and diving for fish in the tidal estuary of the River Tavy in Devon.  150 frames later I ended up with three usable shots.  Worse than macro insect photography :)

 

I like this one the best.  The circular effect in the water is the downdraught from the wings as the gull hovered.

Parking lots on the wall are only for artists (so says the blue P sign on the wall)

I hoped I'd never have to see this, never mind take photos......we were evacuated a few hours later. Many of our friends stand to lose everything.

Don't be! It's only me. I hate the cold so I just moved to the tropics. 32C every day and it's only going to get worse in January and February.
