Diversion.


Always willing to make a diversion from the birds if I can get a hold of excellent photographs to post like these three I recently acquired.


Not quite a diversion from birds with this first image of the Red-billed Tropicbird over Raso, Cape Verde Islands for which I have to thank Chris Batty for giving me permission to copy. This - and some more excellent images - can currently be seen on the Fylde Bird Club website which can be found here http://www.fyldebirdclub.org/  the photographs are currently linked from their website in the right hand sidebar of the homepage....Thanks Chris.


This stunning landscape is the work of Peter Guy who kindly forwarded me some of his images recently. This one is a truly impressive shot of Ingleborough taken by him on a recent visit to this beautiful and dramatic area of Yorkshire. From a photographic point of view take note of the professional way the two trees have been placed in the composition of this picture. If I know anything at all about photography this qualifies for top marks....Thanks Peter.
      

And its certainly time I showed another one of those amazing Landart creations of Richard Shilling's. This one he calls 'Endless Knot' and he describes it as one of the eight auspicious symbols of Buddhism. Richard has an interesting write up about this - and all his other creation's - on his website here http://jrlandart.blogspot.com/ ....Excellent as ever Richard and thank you very much for letting me post this image which is as creative as the art itself.
