The backsides of two bullocks grab the warm morning light and become walking terracotta canvasses. They rustle the swan into alertness and she glances over her shoulder as they pass.
Not too many more trips around the sun before we will slow into winter, and this morning I am back on planet earth savouring the moment. There are so many people to thank and acknowledge, so many kind messages to respond to. What does it feel like to win Best Photography Blog? Unsettling has to be the word!!!
For now thanks to the Blog Awards organisers Lorna, Amanda and Beatrice for a fantastic event and to Damien O Cearbhuil Photography sponsor of the Best Photography Blog Category.
Congratulations to my friend Dee of Greenside Up who swept the boards and who kept me a seat at the "Outdoor" table of friendly wellie wearing types where I felt so at home!!
Later I will try to share more of the story with you all. To be honest it's all a bit overwhelming..........but that's me.........and it will take a few more long walks before I fully absorb it!
Meanwhile back on planet earth.......she seems to be saying to me, slowly, slowly..........take it all slowly........
