This week has been a bit of a marvel for seeing some amazing things from our own garden - I would say back garden, but it's more of a side field... anyway...I digress!
First up we have had a nesting pair of short-earred owls hunting around tea time every evening in the still golden light - a magnificent site - which has highlighted my lack of big enough telephoto lens - which eveidently I need to sort out! I even got the tripod out on the second evening but they didn't come quite close enough! Here are some of the results...
The next day we were treated to a Sun Halo or Sun Bow < click on the words to find out more if you're interested. I recently saw one of these around the Moon, but did not have a decent enough camera with me to capture it unfortunately. Here is what I got from the Sun Halo though - I love the way that the clouds are shaped around it, it gives it al almost erry mystical vibe. I posted this on Aberdeenshire in Colour on Facebook and got over 200 likes for it and an absurd amount of shares too!
Otherwise I captured this lovely sunset shot - not to be confused with a sun halo - it's lens flare on this one.
