Onion Harvest, Swans and A Full Moon Rising

30 Aug

1   We’ve harvested all the onions and they’re drying out ready to plait up and store.

2   We went to Truro this evening and had a walk by the river before going for a meal. I love this photo of the swans on the  river as they have both just lifted their beaks out of the water and left concentric ripples behind.

3   As we left Bustopher Jones wine bar, the very beautiful full moon was rising in a pale pink twilight sky.

    It’s the swans that got me on this post. Reminded me very much of Perth, Western Australia. They were famous for their swans – a tourist attraction, to be sure.

    You know, I’ve just had a loooong, looong week of work, & I come by here on aFriday night and I see you have captured the beauty of each and every day this week while I’ve been stressing,

    and you inspire me.

      Love to you xx

      It was and it got even better to the naked eye but I don’t have the right equipment to photograph at night. 🙂

      Thank you for calling in and commenting. 🙂
