Bloors Wharf with Trev

hi folks,

here I am trying to catch up from last week when we both went  to the river bird watching, don't get me wrong but I feel you really need a long sharp lens for his stuff but he ho, off we went.

All the interesting birds seemed to be miles away down by the waters edge so I snapped this er Gull with his reflection in a pool on his own.

I looked out for something to take a picture of and got this old hulk rotting away on the mud.

This was driving me to drink, the gull was eyeing up the green bottle hoping here was a tipple inside it. I was then on my own as Trev had gone back to the car to get his spotter scope to try to see the birds on the shore line.

Waiting for Trev I spotted this craft that had run aground on the other side of the river, there was no one on board. Still a result, I got the Fort as well.

Trev came back and set up his scope but the wind has getting up so we didn't get to see much. Meanwhile I had to get this one, Sorry Eileen but the sun go it just right.

I was getting cold and bored by his time so I took this nut whilst playing with depth of field.

We packed up and I saw there berries on the way back to the car.

Well that's it, work yet again tomorrow, still looking on the bright side the holiday is coming.

nite nite, Luv Mike XX
