Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Getting Away

One of the bloggers I follow does a photo challenge each week and the subjects are always good, so I have decided to join in.

My Getting Away photo was taken in Ambleside in the Lake District last Thursday. The dogs had a great time as there are so many places to swim.

Lurgan Park Lake

The days were filled with rain and dark skies apart from one day, when I managed to take a few good photos of the lake.

Three Bears

On our way home we decided to take a pic of us and Angelo before driving on to the ship. Made me smile.

Spring

Spring is slowly turning into summer here on the 54th parallel north, I wonder how it is in Unalaska Island who is on the same degree of latitude as us.

We may not have the sprawling majesty of Alaska but our lake is looking very pretty right now. All the wild growth around it is doubling in size each week, the bull rushes are racing to the sky and the herons are visiting to get lunch.

Four Starlings…

A good few years ago M had gone back to Ireland for a month to see his parents and I had stayed at home.  One Saturday I decided to go to Liverpool to take photographs of architecture and general life.  Liverpool is a pool of things to see everywhere you turn.  So, lunch time came and I was walking south along Queens Dock and decided to go to McDonalds to eat.  Being a bright sunny day, the starlings were there waiting for people to drop food or feed them.  I had sat my camera on the table and was eating my fries.  More and more birds came over to see if I was feeding them.  I decided to break up the fries and gently throw them onto the next table where the birds were now gathering.  Seeing that they were all coming to the same spot I decided to turn my DSL camera to them and press the auto focus.  Again gently throwing fries to the table for them they all of a sudden arranged themselves in the position you can see from my photo, and I clicked the shutter and snapped this photo.  Needless to say, when I looked at the photo I decided to give them all the rest of the fries as I thought they had earned them.

I hope you like the result of my photo day.
