Say Hello to the Tehidy Squirrels

This post does not relate to any other topics

Here are a few photos of the rather tame grey squirrels that inhabit Tehidy woods. One might think these little critters were actually posing for the camera they were so casual!

Big Swell Season at Godrevy

Also relates to Surfing

A solid groundswell was running earlier this week. Tuesday morning it was peaking around 12 feet with a 12 seconds wave period and a light south easterly breeze. We briefly made it down to the Red River to see a few big sets close out the bay. A couple of surfers attempted the paddle out back. The first gave up while the second after much peak chasing got maxed out and lost his board on a rogue wave. So alas no surfing pics this time!

Daffodils A Plenty at Trevarno Estate

This post does not relate to any other topics

My Spring daffodil-fest reached its culmination a couple of Sundays ago on visiting Trevarno Country Estate. A visit to the daffodil plantations reveals an incredibly diverse array of species exhibiting colours varying from dark yellows to intense pinks. Here are a few of our favourites all captured with the Canon 200mm f/2.8 L-lens.

I think that is enough said on daffodils from me for this year! The April showers have now kicked in and summer will soon be on its way so time to explore locales further afield.

And besides, wasn't this once a blog about web development…!?

Cornish Narcissus Flowers

This post does not relate to any other topics

The many varieties of Narcissus flowers that grow wild around south-west Cornwall are now in full bloom. There are some stunning Daffodil forest to be found with a little bit of exploration.

And always a treat to stumble upon some Narcissus poeticus. These particular flowers found in a little gully in the furthest reaches of South West Cornwall.

Spring is in the air and it is time to explore and enjoy the magnificent landscape, flaura and fauna of Cornwall.

Quick Way to Photograph the Moon

This post does not relate to any other topics

When the moon is waxing gibbous the light emitted reaps havoc with the exposure metering such that capturing a quick photo can best be achieved in shutter speed priority mode.

This photograph of the moon was captured hand held using the Canon 200mm f/2.8 lens. It doesn't give the detail that might be gained from a longer controlled exposure but there is more than enough detail to discern the lunar seas and the main craters.
