Looking out into the courtyard from my parents' dining room.
It's nice to spend time in a house with so much space! After too much time in small London flats.
Just taking advantage of the wonderfully spongy lawn in the garden for a few moments ...
In a rather noble pose as he stares out across the garden. This shot taken from the main bedroom upstairs using my 55-200mm lens.
One of the hundreds of avian visitors to my folks' garden, brought in for the generous supplies of food available from the bird feeders.
What he does for 80% of the day!
Another one of the garden's visitors, also lured by the possibility of food ...
A pretty selection.
One of many very grey starts, which cleared up into sun later in the morning.
Just a little satisfying arrangement I made with all the red clothes pegs that I used hanging some washing the other day.
He always likes to snooze right up at the head end of the bed by the pillows. Wonderfully convenient ...
One of a few ICM (intentional camera movement) shots I experimented with in the garden. Love this effect - much harder to achieve than you'd think.
St. Mary's Oxford.
Said to have influenced C.S. Lewis when he created the Narnia characters.
As seen from the 'meadows' area. Found this vine quite an interesting detail on the wall.
Just one of the many spires of Oxford to be seen when looking round the 360 view available from the tower of St. Mary's.
As dusk approaches on my final night.
