The view from our balcony: the local grey heron, perched on a branch in a giant willow tree. The tree lost dozens of branches in the recent storms that felled trees in England, the Netherlands and much of Northern Europe.
"I spy, with my little eye..." Remember the childhood game, particularly useful on long road trips, while your parents drove?
Click photos to view detail. Images shot with the SonyA55 - a little camera that packs a big punch. I bought it a couple of years ago, to pop into my handbag when I didn't want to carry my "serious" (and heavy) camera gear. But the A55 languished in a drawer until recently, when I began experimenting with its lightning-fast continuous shooting modes. It's not a camera I'd use on assignment, but it's good for walking-around and experimenting with video, etc.
