Glen Miller Is Missing

I have approximately 1,000,009 part recorded songs across computers, tape recorders and, very possibly, wax cylinders.

Having decided that it was time to “finish” some of them and share them with the world the problem then became which one to finish first. Logically (!) I decided to finish one I hadn’t ever even started to record. Since it was one of the first I wrote some 2/3 of my life ago it makes some sort of sense. Take yourself back to 1979……

Not a bad night for Perseids down here in East Sussex.  I saw a few and my camera caught 27 over just under 400 frames…here are three of them

I’ve lived in loads of houses and only now do I get a Grass Snake in (one of) my compost heaps!  I should say we also have many Slow Worms, some were even cuddling t’other day…

A Ranunculus opening this morning… took just over three hours in real time but real time is boring.


King of Pain….

Yes, more black spots on the sun today (well, yesterday actually).  Finally I get to use my solar filter for an interesting event as Mercury makes it merry way across the face of the sun…..we were forecast clouds all day but in the end there were a couple of hours with enough breaks to get the shots that made up this composite….


The Truth is Out Here!

I will be kept silent no longer.  In the foreground you can see one of my favourite beaches (Camber Sands) in the distance you can see the nuclear power station at Dungeness.  In between that’s not kites, that’s mutant seagulls.  Oh yes it is!
