Stormy Weather

Storm clouds at sunset gave great photo opportunities! There was a sense of calm initially as captured as cloud symmetry then the storm clouds rolled in as the sun was slowly setting

Marsh Harrier

Fantastic views of the harrier today, stayed around quite a while. Always a pleasure to see and observe!

Lovely views of two of these beauties! Not the best pics as the light was atrocious coupled with the fast moving barnies, which made "locking on" to the subjects a bit of a problem, better luck next time!
