Windy Day Walk

So last week I showed photos of the sky when Hurricane Ophelia visited, after the sky cleard The wind blew and the trees got blown around

So we decided to go for a walk up the nearby hill passing by these willows being thrown around

But it was not so bad walking up the hill and the view was worth the effort

The sheep below did not seem bothered and the gorse  even less
The day turned out very plesent apart from the wind. I'll show more from the hill another day

Visit from Ophelia

Tuesday we had a visit from Hurricane Ophelia and as a prelude the sky was red from the dust whipped up from the Sahara, this is what we saw in Wales

The next day after the storm the sky looked like this 

 A beautiful end to the Storm

The Quarry

Not far from the caravan site I go to is a walk that takes you along a track that leads to the top of Aberedw Hill.

 Part way up the hillyou go through an old quarry

 The track runs with water that gets very wet at times

  The water runs out of the side of the hill

 Though looking on the otherside you can see the slate has broken up with weathering

 Stood on the quarry top you get a view of where you have come from. Turn around

And this is the view you see.

Blue Sky

 I took our dog for a walk along the track out of the village one Friday Morning. I stopped to get a photos of this field because I think in the future it will have housing built on it. I suspect around 500+ houses will be built which will loose this view a big loss IMO

 The Blue Sky looked wonderful in the morning

Here Today Gone Tomorrow

This photo was taken on the 15th September when I went along to this baker shop to buy some some lunch to take home for my son. A week later I was there on the Sunday with my wife and again went along to get lunch only to find the shop shut and whats more totally empty. The place had closed down and everything was gone (just my luck I never thought to take a photo). I thought the Lady's serving looked a little unhappy. Now I know why

The following week I went along out of interest to see if the shop was empty still for a photo only to find someone else had moved in. You can still see the bakers display in the window. I doubt very much if I will be going to this shop. I'm still shocked at the loss of my favourite Bakers

View from the Flat

One of the reasons I had visited Dundee was to Take my son up to the job he was starting . He was given a flat to stay in for a couple of weeks and here are some views from the window. The flat over looked the old Victoria Docks

 Looking east you see along the docks and below HMS Unicorn 

 City Quay is a precinct that comprises of shops restaurants and small businesses
 And last the West end of the dock
 This was looking out of the flat to the window

 Looking out of the bedroom window I stayed in you could see the Tay Road bridge while in the distance you can make out the Tay Railway bridge
 Going down the dockside the Ship I showed from the window

 Across from the Quay the block of flats

East along the docks 

And finally West

You might have noticed it was very overcast in the photos well this was the reason

  When I went home the next day I encountered this lot and if I had left it any later I would have spent another night in Dundee.

Moon Shoots

I bought the Canon Powershot SX730 a few weeks ago & decided to try out the zoom. Now I have taken photos of the moon before with my old SX240 but they did not come out like these

 The moon was out in the evening sky when I took these photos

 You can clearly see the craters on this view

 And more lower down

Don't think I ever noticed my photos this of the moon this clear before

This is a stitch of the last two

A week or so later I took the full moon in the night sky
Happy Skywatch
