Up early again this morning trying to find a sunrise photo opportunity and ended up over in York, I took a few shots along the way which turned out well but this classic old barn in York itself which has been photographed to death is still one you can’t drive past if the light is half decent, anyway here it is.
The Avon valley is looking great at the moment with vibrant colours in the landscape and some crops starting to flower. over the next few weeks I hope to capture a series of images that will do it justice. This is a quick grab from this morning of a favourite spot which I am revisiting from time to time to try and get it in all it’s glory.

Yesterday presented an opportunity to go for a drive out and about and try and get some photos of what was happening out on the farms during their seeding programs. This is a shot I took of one of the trucks used to ferry the seed and fertiliser out to the seeding machines. It was the unusual metallic green colour of the truck and nickname that attracted my attention.
Wandering around the same lake the day before I stumbled over this little beetle which was totally encrusted in the salt and was like molten glass. There was a small spider above him obviously trying to find a way of getting at his remains. The beetle was only about ten mm long and the spider only really popped into view when I installed my 105 macro lens and got in nice and close. after the storm that evening there was about twenty mm of water over the lakes surface which made for a totally different scene the next morning and the beetle was nowhere to be found..
