Sunny February Afternoon Walkies

Yesterday stayed Sunny all day with a high of 13C in the shade. Not bad for a February day here. Forecast is for the weather to return to being overcast, wet and windy so it was a case of making the most of a good day.  Taking the path behind the church I wanted to see if any horses were out in the paddock. Two of Stan's horses were outside soaking up the warmth:


Down the track opposite the church Penny took her time to investigate every scent and seemed to be contemplating the risks of getting any closer to the water filled ditch:


Lovely picturesque views across the local flat farmland to the Lincolnshire Wolds:


The above photo was taken with the Nikon at wide angle. On the horizon, about a third the way from the left, about 5Km away, is the spire of Louth's St. James Church towering above the town which is in a valley. Here it is as seen using the full zoom on the Nikon:


All the above were processed using various filters in SimplyHDR.


  1. so neat that you have such rural areas within your local walk. :)

    1. Beautifully rural round here TWG. It would take a major upheaval in life to make me move back to living in a town! Funny, but when I visit the town where I lived over 40 yrs ago I can smell it - probably the pollution from vehicles.

  2. back to your previous post about your new filter for photographing the sun - check out this website about a huge sunspot larger than Jupiter!
    Is that the one in your photo?

    1. Yes Wilma, that is the same one, on the right hand side of my photo. A report I read said that there were two Sunspots moving closer together which promised a lot of activity. By the time they became active they had disappeared from sight as the Sun rotated.


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
