River Waveney, Bungay
This view is from the banks of the River Waveney between the Staithe and Falcon bridge in Bungay. A view across the river where the main subject is the little rowing boat moored up in the water, the water itself is deep green being in the shade of the trees. No kingfishers but a visit from a mallard withe a large brood of very young chicks.
A beautiful bridleway that runs from Benacre to Covehithe. At the Covehithe end is a fantastic Bluebell wood that is fenced to keep deer out and the Bluebells are stunning at the moment. The path continues and opens out farmland and the meadow that was full of sheep and the stunning 2 Oak trees that seem to bend into each other to form a single mass. The path finally joins the road by Wood Farm Barn.
With a beautiful blue and cloudy sky I was looking for Swifts as the Swallows , House Martins and Sand martins are already are here. Alas no sign of them yet although it occurred to me that even without them it was a beautiful subject and so it became the subject for week 17.
A rather dull and slightly cool Saturday morning down at Southwold looking out across the sea.
After a few weeks of warmer spring weather this is feeling a little more like winter and this is reflected by the darker grey sea. This makes you realise how much the sea responds to the weather.
Benacre cart path
This week has seen spring unfold with the Oak trees leaves starting to fill out the trees with that distinctive fresh colour. The edges of the cart path are tinged with the pale yellow green of the Alexanders and the hawthorn trees and Blackthorn now fully leaved whilst the fields either side are still brown and empty waiting for this years crops to break the surface..
