Panoramamania and a Bluebell up me shnozle!

Twas a great day for blundering about with Mr Nikon yesterday. Found meself out in the woods a scarin furry critters with my special woodlands tourettes. Went out to some lovely old woodlands and once I had cleared out all the wildlife got some great images of  beds of bluebells.

Now to be honest I’m not a great fan of flowers, I used to work as a forester and if it wern’t a tree it were a weed! However, a woodland carpeted in bluebells or snowdrops is in my humbles is a truly beautiful sight. And I got a proper faceful yesterday. I even got one up me hooter as I got right down to the deck to check out all the angles,(fell over again) which resulted in a good couple of minutes of  one nostril tramp snotting as I tried to dislodge the insecty critter that had been sunning itself upon the aforementioned flower, I bet he had a story or two to tell the larva’s when he got home.

I took several shots with a view to stitchin them together in to panoramas when I got back. I think that they turned out pretty well seeing as they were all hand held, due to the fact that I’m a lazy arse.

This one is of the the fens up in Cambridgeshire from the other morning. I think that I may have to set up a new image gallery on my website for panoramas so that you can zoom in on them to get more detail. I think here on the old bloggy blog blog you will have to click on the individual images to get a larger image.

Spring has Sprung in Butley Woods

Beauty of a day on Sunday so went for a blunder to see what I could find to blunder about and fall over in. Came across Butley woods which are normally private and full of GETORFTMOILANDyness, but on this occasion were open to the public for a small fee in aid of the Madame Curie cancer trust, probably as the woods were a bustin full of daffodils which is the trusts logo.

Lots of woodland tracks and paths swathed in daffodils, enough to make Welshman giddy!  Not a drop of Welsh blood in me so I was safe 🙂

But the best bit was when I got home. There was roast in the oven and the house smelt just a little bit bloody brilliant! 🙂
