A LIE IN (03/08/10)

No chance at all this morning was woken before sunrise by the resident alarm cock.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Now the racket he was making I thought it would be a simple matter to snap him with his beak open, not at all, this is one of about ten shots and then I cut his tail off. I felt like cutting his head off.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA    There is a chance of some sunshine but it was a cool and murky start to the day.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA   The ducks, pied wagtail and sheep all go about their business with far less noise than his lordship.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIt’s not all gloom, the sun came out in a patchy sort of way.

I’ll see what the weather is offering for tomorrow before deciding whether to stay another day or head back down into the valley.

  2. I love the beautiful, noisy bird! Maybe you can eat some fried chicken and think of him. I also appreciate the patchy landscape; much more interesting that straight sunshine.

  4. When you are as beautiful as him, you're allowed to crow about it! Love the sheep!

  5. Pauline, I don't really object, he's a friendly soul. No shortage of sheep up here. The problem is finding them in the mist.
