Blue Moon, You saw me standing alone

Friday 31st July 2015

So this evening I took the camera and tripod up to the top of Upton Heath, by the Viewpoint, just as it the sun was setting behind the hill.

I passed two cyclists as I walked onto the heath, and later on watched two people walk down the hill, but otherwise I was alone up there: apart from the little rabbits hopping about and the Nightjars churring in the background.

The photos didn’t quite turn out as I’d planned as I’m not used to night photography. But I have one or two images to share.

There were lots of whispy clouds around the moon tonight making it quite atmospheric.

This was taken with the telephoto lens, looking across the Roman Road towards Poole.

And this was the view across the heath, again looking out over Poole.

I was out there for about 45 minutes and it was nearly 10pm when I got home. As I came into the drive one of the young fox cubs was in the garden. It didn’t run away but sat by the hedge and watched me go inside. A nice end to the evening.

Max and I went to Upton Country Park where I took this photo of a Moorhen and her chick.
