I have an obsession with the moon. Who wouldn’t? It is so beautiful. And it is difficult to get a great photo of it, especially if you are me and not aux fait with f stops and shutter speeds and the rest. I can stare at a full moon for hours. Anyway, I managed to get a very nice picture of the not-so-full moon from my back garden one morning – complete with airplane.
Here is a close-up.
I also love a good sunrise. My drive to work can be amazing some mornings when I am driving along the seafront.
I am also partial to a bit of cake.
This is pumpkin bread/cake that I made for Thanksgiving, which is not celebrated in the UK. I took one into work and it went down a treat. I had to scour the internet for a recipe, which were all pretty much the same. Once I perfect this confection, I will post the recipe.
I also love flowers. My sweetheart likes to bring me flowers when he comes to visit and they usually last for quite some time. These roses may not have much of a scent, not many do these days, but they are pretty and opening up nicely.
And what would my post be without a photo of The Eastbourne Pier! It has been blowing a gale out here today. I managed to finish my work and leave early while still light. The photo below was taken at 4pm today.
I couldn’t quite capture the violence of the waves as I didn’t have my tri-pod with me and I was being blown about! I was lucky to get this photo as most of the others were quite blurry! It still looks stormy though! I think winter has finally arrived!
