Daylight evenings on SKY WATCH FRIDAY

For other participants in Dot’s concept, go to Sky Watch HQ.

In the last week alone, 
it has been almost daylight,

 then more daylight, each evening
and when I've finished after work
 I have been able to take Pippa for a good solid walk

Come on woman!! Always looking up and NOT at me!

I continue to be mesmirised by the naked branches reaching ever upwards


  1. Wow these shots are awesome, well done.

    Have a great weekend!

  2. I was so mesmerised by your last photo of naked, veined branches that I've been looking up at any tree I've passed in the past week!

    Yes, at last, the evenings are getting lighter. It is almost light when I get home from work now. I just need it to be light when I leave in the morning and I can start to feel better.

  3. It's like the limbs are Japanese calligraphy! Love all the colors in these photos!

  4. Oh, those longer daylight hours are heaven sent, and your pictures reflect that beautifully!
    Love that bare tree, quiet a character.

  5. Beautiful photos - I take similar ones this time of year. Something about those naked arms reaching, bending, and clawing that captures my imagination again, and again.

  6. Wonderful sky photos. I love how the sky appears to be framing the branches in the first photo.

  7. Great shots! The trees on the last one, almost look like they are reaching out for you! Almost a little creepy...But still so beautiful!

  8. i love the branches against the sky so much.. i painted it on my master bedroom wall! :D

    great pics!


  9. Branches of the trees are amazing, I love how they seem to take a life of their own...
    Very nice photos!

  10. Saz, the photos are captivating and a story in their own right.

    Sheila :-)

  11. It's always good to look up! You see so much.
    I like the longer days, too. Makes a big difference in how I feel and how much I get done, it seems.

  12. I love how the branches are all twisty turny. And the colors of the sky behind them is beautiful. Come visit me and comment or you know you will feel guilty ;-) See, I do read other posts. I enjoyed your blog very much.

  13. I love the tree's at this time of year, so much more interesting to photograph. Great shots!

  14. I love the last one because of the rosy florid color with the blue. Excellent.

  15. What a lovely place you have for a walk.

  16. Isn't this time of year wonderful - light coming back, all the promise of renewal in it, and your pics!

  17. Lovely Sazzie, I think that I shall never see, a poem lovely as a tree.

  18. what a beautiful setting for a walk, i loved your pics and have been following your blog now for about a week. truly awesome. take care, cinner

  19. Naked trees look so much better than when they are covered with their stuff. Lovely photos.

  20. Great the trees in the sky...and the tinges of pink...(handbag diva, be right over)

  21. Love the pictures! So stark and beautiful!

  22. OOOOOOH .. I love those trees .. those branches are like curlicues ..

  23. Fantastic pictures, I think I need a new camera..

  24. Me again - I've been following a few skywatch blogs for a while now and am interested in having a go. What do I need to do?

  25. These twigs in every direction and each fighting for more light to feed itself and that is not much different from what we do. I love trees and especially the giant oaks.

  26. I can see why! Especially that last shot. Evocative.

    (You asked about that shark boat picture of mine. I took it in heavy fog in morning light so that was a lot of it. Taking it with a higher exposure helps to get a starker light composition. But curves in photohop serves me really, really well. Plus I process in Adobe Bridge as raw before I bring it over. A lot to improve on my photos which would otherwise be less than they are. I've still a tonne to learn! Thanks for asking, though.)

Thanks for stopping by!

Take the weight of your feet, draw up a chair and pour yourself a cuppa. Leave your troubles at the door and together we shall ride out the storms.
I will walk a while in your shoes...

Tesco - every little helps

Last year I bought myself a new camera online from Tesco. One of those emails arrived in my inbox with a 'deal of the day'  and for me the camera was the dog bollocks, in as much as it had a large 8 mega pixel whatsit .... and a large LCD, and yes I do like things big.. say no more! Oh and it is red! which is almost as good as purple but not quite, like size colour of inanimate objects does matter. It was a great price and the bonus was that it came with a, yes you guessed it, large  memory card. Total cost £74.
It arrived quickly but not with the promised memory card, so I contacted Tesco and they apologised, told me they'd run out and would credit me for the cost of the memory card. I found to my surprise a credit of £36.99 in my bank account, so the camera was only £37! I bought the same memory card from Amazon for a few pounds only, so a  result, thank you Tesco!
A few weeks ago my girlfriend's washing machine broke down in its last month before the 12 month warranty…


..and here we are firmly into a new year and I am sitting up wide awake in bed, yet again... I am reflecting upon what was in 2013 and what wasn't.

The 'what wasn'ts ' are left where they are, filed and duly noted, I shall unremember them.

However for the 'what was' ' and that which I choose to bring with me into 2014, are the things that are memorable, enriching, happy and surprising, be them the tiniest fragment of joy or the biggest new thing on the block!

I didn't get off to a great start in January as we had only recently lost Mumma a few months before, the countdown to my son's second year of uni starting mud summer in the States and i was in the middle of a roller-coaster of negotiations trying to secure a business lease and plan for a potential opening. I wasn't at my best and i was running low on fuel.

However as always when faced with a challenge I was defiant and rose to several occasions, decisions with all the positivity I could mus…

What a difference....

a year makes!

It has taken me the better part of the last month, to access my blogs (and Moannie's) as I feared it had alas been removed from the ether. Playing around with passwords and email addresses...I'm in again.

My last post , just 10 months ago...burst my seams, as again I realised how so much has changed!

I'm still,  in my new wee home, with Joey (dog) and Monty (cat).

My lovely son has returned from uni in the USA, attained a First Class degree and started work in London last Autumn as a writer...the world his oyster for the taking! My hero!

My beautiful daughter is in Leeds, amid her Midwifery degree, working at a Brazilian first class restaurant, all loved up with the Spanish Chef.... a meeting is on the cards AND he is taking her to meet his Mama is Spain this summer, so must be serious methinks! So proud!

My hugely supportive brother (TOAOS) is living contently in the Garden of England with his wife and Harry the cutest dog!!

My younger and what a stunner sis…
