New Year Eclipse   2 comments

Happy New Year to everybody, I hope it brings everything you wish for. I was surprised today when a friend phoned me to say that there was a solar eclipse occurring, just goes to show how far off the pulse my finger gets sometimes eh? So I went out have a look with my sunglasses and camera. Of course the sun was still far too strong for me to be able to look directly at it even with the sunglasses so I tried to take some photographs. Nope that was no good either but I’ll post one of them here because a lot of people have said nice things about my photography and I just want to show that I do have some failures.

But one of the photos turned into a rather pleasing abstract what with the lens flare and the colours.

I was walking at the back of the house on the penultimate day of 2010 and heard a buzzing sound. In spring you can often hear it if you are anywhere near the almond trees because of the number of bees around the blossoms, looking up I found that it was bees this time too. There are a couple of young eucalyptus trees that had their little white flowers open and the bees were having a fine old time buzzing around collecting the pollen.

I’m going on a trip to France next week so look out for very different pictures before long.

  1. Hi Chris, great photos. I particularly liked the one of the Ecalyptus blossoms. Nice close-up. I am still in Lahore, fighting the good fight to get possession of my house again. The battle got nasty. But I am hoping the matter will be resolved soon. More later. Javaid. PS. “Well Met in Cyprus” is available from

  2. Hi Javaid, sorry to hear about the house problems, good luck with getting it finished. Excellent news that ‘Well Met in Cyprus’ is available now.
