Day 143~366

Last night we had a sunset spectacular, so firstly this is a different tree, my old Eucalyptus which has followed me from Mum’s garden, to my house in Hemel Hempstead, potted and put on the balcony at my flat in South Shields, then to the back garden of my home here, and then to the front garden. It has to  be propped up as it leans mightily to the right if left to its own devices, and this the top of  it, silhouetted against a glorious sky.


And now onto my Oak tree!  It rained a fair bit today, so off I went in the downpour to catch the tree leaves in the rain, it had a good drink today.







Back to work tomorrow, so will be doing evening shots of the tree, fingers crossed for more cool sunsets 🙂


  1. Great droplet shots, FR! Real classics of the droplet genre.
    We used to go shopping at Tesco in Jarman Park in Hemel, when Julie lived in Abbots Langley. My stepson still lives in the town, in Adeyfield.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Cheers, though these were done with my zoom lens, branches are too high for me to get to with the macro lens!

    1. Thanks Melanie, and your photo’s are always fab!


  6. These are stunning. That light spring green is such a beautiful colour. We are in the midst of autumn here in New Zealand, everything is yellow and russet. So beautiful to see how life pushes onward on the other side of the earth. Thanks for sharing!
