Mark’s parents came for a visit last weekend and we went for a lovely walk in the woods.
Freya had great fun and especially enjoyed splashing in the muddy puddles in the car park. This one was a bit deeper than any of us expected (thankfully she was in full wet weather gear).
Please do click on the camera below and check out what other people have been taking photos of this week.
It’s been a chilly start to the year in Norwich but Jack Frost created some pretty photo ops – and I got to play with my new 50mm lens.
I already had a 50mm but this one is so quiet and smooth. I actually “oohed” the first time I used it. I’m really surprised by how different it is to the old one (although it had got to the point where that one would only take images it really liked, which wasn’t that often). I’m still getting the hang of it.
I’m lucky that Freya likes being outside whatever the weather (and I make sure she’s well wrapped up). This was the first time she had held a piece of ice.
I’m not sure these poor birds on the pond were as taken with it. There were some rather unfortunate landings.
How’s the weather been where you are?
Wishing you a happy new year! I hope you had a brilliant festive period and are now all set for 2017.
We had a quiet Christmas with just the three of us but it was lovely and relaxed – and Freya enjoyed time playing with her new toys.
The day after Boxing Day we decided to make a follow up trip to see the grey seal pups. This time we walked from Winterton rather than Horsey (you can see my previous post here).
It was a gorgeous day weather-wise and it seemed like almost everyone in Norfolk had the same idea as the beach was very popular.
It was well worth the walk, although we were upset by how close some people think it’s ok to get to the seals. One woman was about a foot away from a pup with her phone shoved in its face. I know they are quite used to people but they are still wild animals (and will bite).
We stayed a respectful distance away and with my zoom I was able to get some nice shots.
Sending my best wishes for a happy and healthy 2017 (with lots of great photo ops).
