Love this time of year when the leaves are just starting to change colour and though the temperatures are pretty warm there is more of a slight chill first thing in the morning. At Loch Ard it is amazing to see the reflections on a still day. I am looking forward to hopefully many a trip as Autumn progresses.
I don’t always pay that much attention to the weather forecast as pretty much whatever it is doing I will be getting outdoors in some shape or another so when it all clicks together it is great.

When it is really warm temperatures don’t like to take Maia anywhere that isn’t near water just so she has somewhere to cool down and plus it is fun being around water with her. That is what life is about isn’t it, having fun when you can. That seems to more important than ever at the moment.
Most of the time on my Nikon D60 I used a Tamron 18 – 200mm lens and absolutely love it however I also own a wide angle lens: Tamron 10 – 24mm.
Rather than starting at the beginning of the week I have decided to start at the end. Thursday evening was an absolutely gorgeous evening and went out for a paddle with my mother – in- law. Words and pictures don’t really describe how stunning it was to be out on flat calm water and watch the sun setting. The colours were amazing! Continue reading “Making The Most Of It”
