Something a little different for me,, all my blogs,have been written at home, this one is being told from, an international location.

I am so very greatful for so many little things, learning about myself, all the time, seeing things , with different eyes as well.

I got my yearly testing of my eyes done the other week, a side effect of diabetes is the possibility of my eyesight, i knew, they might be worse this, time and i was right, just needed stronger reading glasses, so not to bad.

I had a cold for 5 weeks as well, but you just get on with it, only thing i never done , as much was take pictures, missed some nice skies as well, but there will be more.

Soon, i will have been a year in, my job, place is growing all the time, the work, is busy all, the time, get asked, if i miss engineering, but i never do, is was just a chapter in my life story, a long one, but just a part of the past like , so many other things now.

I got up, early the other week, sky was clear, thought of getting a picture of the stars.

I went through a gate, into the fields and it is like instant dark, in such a short distance and it is like another world.

Once, your eyes adjust, then the sky just pops, there is such beauty above us, lying on the ground, in the middle of a field and just looking, up, is amazing, i have been like this, many times in life, hopefully, many times more, i am so lucky in seeing things, that others, just never bother about, my life is not a fast one, i lead a slower pace, than most.
I take time to observe, what is around me and i am thankful, for this.

But i got my picture and once i am home from this international jaunt, i will post one of them.

I travelled by train on Thursday, i enjoy the train, it is for the most part peaceful, watching the countryside whizz by, even going through the few towns, i enjoy.
I get to sit and think, just like being on, one of my walks, there, when a quiet spot is found to run through some of the things, that run, through my head.
One thing, that is funny is the boring bit, there is a little stretch, where it just seems to take longer, by car or train, it is the same.

Best thing of all, is that waiting for me, at the station is Boredmum, getting off, the train, walking towards, her and then i have her in my arms, a massive hug and a few kisses as well,,

Never on the dark days, did i think life, would be like this now, i guess, it shows, never to give up, to just keep fighting, for maybe just like, with me, life can change, so very quickly as well..

I know, no picture, but i have none on, the laptop, so sorry about, that, but maybe tomorrow or Sunday, i will post a little picture..

To each and everyone,, i hope, the days treat you well..

Sunday, November 20, 2016, 9:28:25 AM- A Defining Moment
Time goes so, very quick for my, these days, it is so precious, as you get older, you try and grasp, as many moments, as you can.

Autumn, has, came and went, i chased the colours, got a few really nice pictures, ones.

I stood in a river, spot where i swam 30plus years ago, forgot about the beauty of the spot and was in my element, how standing there, for what i thought was 30mins, had turned into over 2hrs, by the time,, i headed home, it had became over 4hrs.

My journey is one of discovery, i am learning all the time, learning the art, that i partake in, is such a part of me, also learning about me, as well, it all becomes one, at times.

I get to spend, as much time, as possible, with my Beautiful Boredmum, as i can, i love my adventures, with this lady, she has been a breathe of fresh air to me, i travel to meet her, as much as i can, this was a big step for me,, i do not do new things, for some a simple train journey is no problem, for me, the first part of my journey was easy, had done it a lot of times, the next part, i had to process it, all in my mind, then i just got on that train, now it is easy.

I sit, i watch, i listen, so many do not, the outdoors, is where i am peace, seeing things, i have seen before, are just as great , as the new, few sundays ago, early morning landscape shoot, gave me such a beautiful sight, a flock of Lapwings, flying back and forth over the pond, had me glued too, them, the twists and turns and i am in this place, these once, common birds, are a rare sight here now, not like when, i was young, when i saw them, all the time.

I listened to a distant owl,, think, it was Tawny, when it is dark, the sounds of Nature, is wonderful to me, the first note, the bird sings, the beat of wings, going by me, the whisper of the wind, water flowing.

THen, i have the sit moments, these are , when i sit down, it is random places, can be a nice shaped stone, a tree sloped, the right way, that my back, just flows into, or just on the grass.

My last sit moment, was by the pond, the owner had dumped a large rock, it was the perfect seat, i sat my gear up here. in front of me, was the pond, this one is quite new, but nature is shaping it, reeds, are growing and the grasses, the waterfowl are always in here.
I was watching, to all, that was going on, around me, i was listening too, the bark of of a dog,, was what i heard first.
My head has been a little cloudy lately, these quiet times, soothe me , in a way that no other thing can, it gave me the defining moment, where, it just became clear.

For all i love wildlife, that moment, there taught, that it is, the landscpae is, my true passion , in photography, as i saw the sky change to my right, all i could think of, was i want to catch that sky, to show the beauty of the new dawn of the day, that special moment, when the sun comes up and lights up the land..

So here is the picture, this was the moment, where the cloudy head cleared, all the problems, went, i saw the future path, that i will go on, chase the light, chase the dream,, just chase life..

"Simply amazing."

Sunday, September 18, 2016, 5:52:35 PM-
Just a little thank you, to everyone, that has commented on my blogs and read my blogs, not just the last few, but all the blogs, i have ever done. It is very kind of people taking time out from there daily lives, to read the words and to often view the pictures, that i share, some leave more of a mark on them, with the comments, that are left, they become part of the story of my life..

When it was suggested to me, that writing might help, at a time in life that was, not great, would lead me to the place i am now and then getting asked to show some pictures of where i walked, two of the biggest moments in my life.

I blogged nearly every day, for 1000 blogs, i was addicted to it, but it cleansed my soul, it helped more, than anyone will ever know, for all i told about my life, pretty much warts and all, there was things, that happened, that well, that yes, i did write them, but deleted, often at these times, tears ran down my cheek, but still that process of writing helped.

My need to write, has not been of much need lately,for i have found a happiness, that i never thought there was. I smile and, i laugh, but yes i feel guilty in not blogging sometimes, i thought about just posting a picture, but it does not work for me.

Who would have thought that getting into photography, through being a member of an adult site, could lead me to a place, where, my pictures, that i post around the web, have been viewed millions of times, from people all over the world.

So from this simple man, too each and everyone of you, thank you for bringing me, too the place i am in life now.

From last night, chasing an image, that just never happened, but,like in the old days of picture taking, when i saw this, just thought it was the one for a blog.
I have shared those two trees before, but i shot from an angle that made you see, them as one tree, it was like other times, one tree, was when i felt alone, but now, i am part of a couple, so now i share these trees, as they are meant to be, My Two Trees..

At the rate, i am going with blogs, it works put about 11 left to go after this one, but things can change.

With the evening drawing in, Autumn is starting to show, her beauty, when the trees turn to, such beautiful colours, early morning fogs and if i am really lucky, an early frost or two.

With a bit of luck, we might not be as wet, as the last two yrs once winter hits.

I walked in my woods the other week, caught sight of a little bird, called a Nuthatch, first one, i have ever seen here, been looking for years for one, had the camera, got a record shot, but that was all, it was close to dark, but for a simple man like me, this was such a wonderful gift from Mother Nature, to give to me.

My time, with Boredmum is so special, such a gift to come into my life indeed, when i felt the calm a little while ago, i was lucky, i was visiting her, i cried and she held me so tight, for once, the storm never followed.

We have had so many special moments together, love is indeed a wonderful thing.

I have started a new project, one that will mean a lot of work, trying to be a National Champion once more, i love setting myself goals, this one might take a year or two, till i get close again, but i will.

My photography has been plodding along, taking pictures, when i can, trying to capture the beauty that Mother Nature gives me, taken a few decent pictures, this yr, think i am now at 11 pictures, that i really like.

Funny that one of the pictures, that done well for me, with so many thousands of views, was one, that i nearly deleted, , why i sometimes, wait a year, before editing pictures.

This was such a picture, taken close too, a year ago. From one of those morning, that are rare here, a frost covering the fields and the sunrise, happening at the same time, can remember waking late that morning, running out the house, climbed the fence at the top of the road, then jogged down the field.
Getting out of breathe was, worth it, i think..

How, i love this place and all, its weather, from the odd days of sun, too those wild stormy days.

But as i sit and write this evening, the rain is falling, been a wet old summer here in my little part of Scotland, can only remember 2 dry weeks this year.

Would like a little bit of sun, might be like others and complain of the heat, but knowing me, i would just lap it up and enjoy the heat of the sun on these old bones.

How fast the year, has went by , 8 months in, been a blast, went on a little adventure the other week, travelled by train, well 3 separate trains, i enjoyed it, train was busy, but my time flew by.

A week on Friday and i am on holiday, so many days to spend, with Boredmum, funny thing is, we are never bored, i keep wondering what boredom is actually like, always so much to do and even in those quite times, i am busy.

I am getting old, my body is telling me, more and more now, hard for me to accept, that i will not be the active person i was in, some ways.

I have trouble even climbing a fence now, gone is the young boy, who could put his hand on a fence post and then vault over the fence, i find these things, so hard to get my head around.

But i am fortunate, i still have places to roam, so much to see. I have a drive, it will carry me on,, so what if i wake i all sore, feeling like a 90 yr old for i get the greatest gift of all, each time i do, for i am alive and as long as, i am i adapt and enjoy the world, i live in..

Been a while, so many things have happened, but the main thing is, that i am very happy.

Work is going well,could blog about there, everyday, always something..

But now it is only just a small part of life.

The camera and I, have our adventures, we have seem a lot, shared some of it online, but as usual , so much goes untouched.

I bought a bit of new gear, main things, were a very nice tripod and at long last, a long lens.

Used it for some wildlife and also, for my landscapes, the picture i will post at the end, was taken with it.

That time of year for me, to think she would have been 28 now, i still think of her everyday at some point. I never really talk about this, except in my blogs.

Boredmum, came to visit this weekend, she made things, a whole lot easier, for me, just being here, such a special lady.

How lucky i am to have her in, my life.

I carry forward one thing forward into, my life plan for this year, but that is ok,, i was able to tick the rest of them off, so now i am working on this years now.

I have changed, so relaxed now, even a little more confident. Still as shy as anything, that is never really going to change.

I grab each day, try and get as much out of it, as i can, try to be a good person and i stay true, to the values, that are so much, part of me.

This simple man is, still enjoying, those simple pleasures in life..

I woke early on the Sunday morning, looked out the window and the place was white, with frost, turned out it was a nice -5 frost.

Photo gear is ready, quick breakfast and out, local pond, was my choice.

Walking through the quiet of the village, only a few cars pass and the birds singing.

The walk is a short one, but, once out, the village, the beauty of the dawning morning was starting to show, the colours was fantastic on the horizon.

I wish, i had stopped and took a few pictures now, but was on a mission.

I met the owner of the place, when i was just crossing the gate, quick morning and i walked too the waters edge and set up and how vivid the sky was, took some very large panoramas, shoot a lot of them now, 7 images blended together, does give such beautiful detail.

But looking to the left, i saw, what i was hoping for, my beautiful swans, were at the top end, now thoughts of landscapes, are out my mind and i head to them.

Changing lenses to my 70-200 and then, just enjoying my time,down lying on the ground most of the time, so many pictures taken and now i seldom think i take a decent picture, but i got a couple that will be added to my own favourites.

Mother Nature, gave me such beauty once again, when i had got too, the end, when the sun had came up, i am just sitting on the ground and taking in the moments, thinking how fantastic my life really is.

For me this is the moments of wonder, sometimes, i share them now, with BM, she would tell you, I get lost in these moments, it is calming, all other thoughts are gone.

I call this follow me, the lead swan was breaking through the ice for the other ones, the cygnet in the middle, how glad i am , to be there to capture these moments, this simple man, has simple pleasures.

Hello everyone, catch up time and the usual waffling, as i call it, start to right about one thing and probably will go off, on a tangent.

Birthday has come and gone, best one ever, got the best gift ever, now the owner of a pig called George, BM is getting to know me.

From an early age, i have loved pigs, always wanted one, but, was never allowed, but now i have George, he is a bit like me, i love rolling around on the ground and also enjoy apples.

But he does not, live with me, for George is, in an animal sanctuary, he was a rescue pig.

But that day is one of the very best, so much more, that i could share about that special day.

Work is going well, we are getting hammered with the weather, when working outside, you get effected with it, people moan, me, i just get on with it..

How things, just keep changing, so much in a year. to be truthful.

But the changes are from with in mostly, my year plan, that i make, has changed a little this year, the big one happened, the little ones, that are just little photographic things, are getting worked on.

This weekend, i get the chance to shoot a picture, that i have dreamed of for a few years, next 2 weeks and that is, it till October.

But if not, the chase will go on, if i get it, what then, move to some other plan, that is on the shot list, it is the challenges, that is what it is about.

Woke to Snow this morning, had a bit more, than normal, but still we get so little.

This blog, has been started, 4 times, there, has been a few reasons, that it has been like this, twice, i deleted it, after a visit to status, too much drama going on, stepped away, one, i fell asleep, the last time, like this one it was, all over the place lol.

Now this was a discovery, just off a path i walk, decided to explore, was worth standing in the water, hard place, to shoot, tripod was set up at a crazy angle, but eventually, got it, also the pool, had some debris in it, so i moved it out, but i will explore more, never know, what else, i might find.

Absolutely beautiful photograph of this small waterfall and pool. This looks like a stream that is worth exploring along its whole length."

It never took long for someone at work to say, he did not like working with me, my crime, when a light shower of rain came on, i never stopped working, oh well.

The nights and mornings are getting lighter, happy that it,is this time of year again.

Like a lot of places over here, even more rain, than last year, when you see other places in the world, that could really do, with it and we get what we get.

I was in the fields yesterday and it was a case of sinking in them, they are totally saturated now, the sheep were going about there day, but they were all looking so tatty, wool so dirty.

My bird count for the year rose one, saw the little Grey Wagtail, having a drink, later than normal to see, one, but well, not been out as much.
I keep no, actual list, last weekend, i did see a Purple Sandpiper, which is quite a rare one for this area, took me a little bit of detective work, to work out, what it was.

I was going to buy a lens for wildlife, this week, my birthday is next weekend, my plan was to add one expensive bit of kit at this time of year, a gift to me, but when i was out yesterday and just thinking how often over the next month i will, get the chance to use it, put it off, for a month or so, unless a offer comes up for it! had the money for it, for a while now, but i like to wait.

THis years best part of my birthday, will be having Boredmum, here to share it with.

Had a cold, for over 3 weeks now, well not really a cold as such nose is the only place, that has it, longest ever in my lift, i think.

Rain lashing on the window and it is the Jackdaws in the tree that are catching my eye, there is usually over a dozen of them, they look as if they are playing tag or something like that.

My woods, were quiet yesterday, not like the Robin that was singing outside my window,at 4-10am yesterday morning, what a wonderful way to waken too.

But still plenty of birds in the trees, just hiding from the dreach day, i suppose, looking down at the nutter, who was walking in it.

But at this time, it is when the changes start, my mission was find, the first one, i really look for.

The mission was successful, the Snowdrops are out and from now on it is change after change, Daffodils will be next then, the next big one is the Bluebells, wonder, how many have walked in the woods early in the morning as the new day is dawning and just sat or lay beside the bluebells and just took it all in,, yes this simple man, does love the simple pleasures of his simple life..

Was lucky to have a fantastic weekend in the company of Boredmum, was a weekend we both needed, since hearing of the death of her beloved Nan, all i was wanting to do, was give the biggest hug and hold her so tight.

The we spent, from Friday to this morning, is like a dream to me, from the dark days, to the days so full of light.

We went to the coast, we visited once before, was a lot different this time, was so stormy.

I was down too the waters edge in a flash, taking pictures of some birds, but the large waves, that were crashing over the harbour wall, and the rocks, that make up the enterance, were drawing me like a moth too a light.

First thing i will say, is a am always very careful when we have big seas, i bought a long lens, so i could shoot pictures on days like this, yes some looked like the water was coming down on me, but i was 50ft away from there, plus, i stood for an age and watched where the waves were coming over the wall.

I also hugged the seawall, which stands about 6ft tall as well and was down below it as, i was taking the pictures, so how high was some of them, from them hitting the wall, to the peak of the the spray of them over 20ft, i dread to think what they were like the day before, when it was 70mph gusts we were getting, i know one thing, i would not be down there, and yet some people were driving to the very end and then sitting for a little while, crazy.

From there i walked up a little hill, behind the Harbourmasters, shed and set the tripod up as low as possible and took more pictures from the sea side, watching how the waves curled back on there selves, once they hit the wall, was something, i had never noticed before, some times, the gusts of wind made it impossible to keep the camera steady and all this time, the birds were swimming around in the maelstrom of water.

Mother nature was putting on a little show for me, she is so giving to me, now where was Boredmum, while all this was taking place,, sitting in the warmth and shelter of her, car, yes one of us is sensible, that is for sure and it sure was not this simple man..

So here we, have one of my pictures, shows, just a little of the storm, that was raging around me..
