Starlings and Apples

This is the first time I have seen Starlings show interest in an apple:

I don't think they were too impressed as they didn't stay very long.

Sunset

This evening was one of those rarer occasions when there was very little cloud in the West while the Sun was setting so all the gorgeous colour was on the cloud formations towards the East:

As for the dire warning of snow for us yesterday. It was almost a case of what snow, here anyway. Some very fine snow with an hour of the fluffy stuff which started to settle and then vanished. Mainly sleet and rain.

Tuesday Teaser

Last week I used Circular Studio to produce:
WB2

from  this:
Windmill in Boston

A photograph I took many years ago of the Maud Foster Windmill in Boston, Lincolnshire.
This is a working mill and details can be found HERE.

Well done to Roy, Bettina, Adrian and Ragged Robin who could see it was a windmill.

On to a new Circular Studio concoction for you to identify:

As always, if you want to have a guess as to what this is you can leave your guess in the comments. They, along with the original photo, will be revealed next Tuesday.

December Cold Moon

A clear frosty morning gave an opportunity to see the December 'Supermoon':

DSCN7939 Moon

DSCN7936 Moon

As predicted it was large and bright, too bright for the little Nikon to cope with as detail was burned out. I tried a bit of burning in Affinity but the detail just wasn't there.
