October scenes - edited to add eagle

We have been experiencing some blue sky October days, temps hovering around the 14 C mark during the day, and actually dropping close to 0 degrees overnight. The bright weather has offered a wonderful backdrop for photos. These photos were taken at a recent visit to 'where the river meets the sea'. There were hundreds of water birds, some seals, and eagles flying overhead! Spectacular October scenery!

  3. Glo, for some reason, I'm having difficulty seeing your images (this post as well as the last one). But I'll try again a bit later. Love seeing what your camera finds in your beautiful part of the world.

  4. I think that we're all rather in awe of what is almost routine for you! Sunny days at this time of year are just great aren't they. Flighty xx

  6. Hi John ~ Watching for eagles is one of my favorite things! They have a distinct cry/whistle that triggers my eyes to scan the skies and tree tops. They are amazing raptors.

    Hi Louise ~ Thanks :) Those seals and I seem to play peek-a-boo! My camera goes up, they go down! Occasionally, I'm lucky. They seem very conscious of my whereabouts and seem to eyeball me as well! It's great to have the blue skies, so glad you are experiencing them too.

    Hi Nikki ~ Sorry to hear the images aren't coming up for you. I wonder why... hope you have success, but if not, let me know and I'll post them a shade smaller and see if that helps.

    Hi Flighty ~ I sometimes wonder if people are getting tired of seeing my photos of the area, but I enjoy so much getting outdoors to see how the cycle of life is turning! I am constantly in wonder and awe of my surroundings, and I appreciate having so much natural beauty so close at hand. Blue skies in October (or any time of the year) are grand!

  7. Oh thanks, Flighty for your comment about the falling leaves. I was trying to get some falling across the screen, but so far only have a little patch ;)
