I recieved an email from the Daily Mail on Thursday; they were running a story in the Friday edition about plastic bags and wanted to pay me to use my photo of a Great Crested Grebe to go with it. This is a picture that I took in London almost 12 months ago. Nothing has come of this in the end – but like the Oscars, it was a honour to be nominated! 🙂

I was at Stonehenge for the summer Solstice… anyway recently someone commented about one of my pictures on one of the photograph sites that I post to.
Here is the picture. You can click on it to get a bigger image.
And here is the comment.
Great image spoiled by the NO in the cloud formation obviously not a heavenly body!!!! apart from that nicely handled image…Bev.
I had to email Bev to find out what was meant… and only after much staring did I see that message sent to me during sunset before the summer solstice at stonehenge… boldy in the top middle of the picture, nestled among the clouds… “NO”… was someone trying to tell me something?

Managed a good sunrise at Deadman Hill yesterday morning… I’m sure all the car heading off to work along Roger Penny Way, think I’m mad, stood on the bend of a road in the chill of the early morning, taking photographs of a tree!

I went to London on Saturday morning to take Photos. I blame Ferg, it was all his idea! Anyway I got up a 3am; I was meant to get up at 3:30am but woke up at 3am and had no chance of getting back to sleep. I drove to Ferg’s for 4:30 and then he drove on to Royal Victoria Docks (Excel London) for sunrise – 6:59am. I think we were there about 6:45am
The sunrise was dissapointing mainly because of conditions and location, Victoria docks is not as good a location as it appeared to have been. However the light was good for taking photos. We then spent the rest of the day taking photos around Canary Wharf and Bank.
