From snow to coast.

This time last week I was digging the snow from the drive, taking photo’s in the snow. A week later and bar the mountains the snow is gone, well for now. Here in Ireland the weather can change in an hour. With a cool breeze and sunshine that gave no heat I headed for the coast. With heavy rain showers and a bitter wind I sat with a coffee and watched the bird life feeding in the mud flats left has the tide receded. With the return of the no heat sunshine I grabbed the camera’s and went for a walk. Below are a few of my shots from the day.

Relax now this is the only bird shot this week, a couple of Redshank’s feeding around the mud flats.

Fishing boats and one of the markers at the mouth of Strangford Lough. In the back ground is the Isle of Man, Looking closer because of the use of a telephoto lens.

Parked in the wrong spot…. the colour of the toy car caught my eye on the walk back.

It was the sun hitting the seaweed and lichen on the rocks that drew me to this photo.
