Walk Right Back-story of the Everly Brothers

Last night a friend asked if I wanted to go to the Hall for Cornwall to see a show about the Everly Brothers, at first as I was going to say no, then thought why not and I am so incredibly glad I did.  I didn’t really know walk to expect and the first bit I was a little unsure about but when those two young lads started to sing I like everyone else in the Hall was singing along, clapping and having an amazing experience.  The second half is no stop music and just fantastic. I might say as nearly as enjoyable as the Greatest Showman!!!  The show is called Walk Right Back and if you ge the change to go and see it I would highly recommend it. I’m not a big Everly fan but love that era of music and there was some Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison thrown in as well.  All in all a very talented group.  Of course I had to buy the CD which the boys kindly signed the inside cover for me – I’m starting to sound like a groupie!!




The mojo is definitely coming back!

Well another weekend has gone by and though I say it myself it has been a good one – especially with the camera.  Yesterday morning was my ‘Heligan fix’ in the bird hide lol!! Then last night I dragged Mick out for a walk along the river bank to see if there were any Heron’s – which surprisingly there wasn’t but I did get some photos and in the process discovered that my 50D is giving up the ghost 😦 will have to look into getting it repaired as it is a handy second body.

Nuthatch at Heligan, pleased with it but still needs working on 🙂 – my excuse to keep going back to photograph them – in case you haven’t gathered I love Nuthatches!



Anemone first thing this morning in the garden




I managed to catch the Wren again, not as sharp as I would like – yet 🙂

Thank you for looking. 🙂

More small garden birds at Heligan.

I took myself off to Heligan again early Saturday morning to spend some time with my camera and reacquainting my interest.  My plan was to get to the hide first thing (as a Friend of Heligan, we can go in an hour before opening time on Fri and Sat) and spend some quiet time watching and photographing the birds. They are a lot of young around at the moment which makes my life easier as they tend to sit in one place for a while unlike the parents who are flitting back and forth to them!!   Have to say I am really enjoying renewing my interest in photography with the help of these lovely little birds.


I am pretty sure this is a baby Robin.


Great Tit


Female Chaffinch


Wren –  I was delighted to not only see this little chap but to actually get a photo of him made my day.  We have them in the garden but they are so quick and shy that I have never managed to get a photo before.



House Sparrow feeding it’s young – not a brilliant photo but I was happy to get it 🙂


A photo a week challenge: Natural Monuments

I wanted to have a go at this challenge but discovered I don’t have many photos of natural monuments, obviously I need to think about this in future 🙂  I did manage to find these two though, both taken at Helmor Tor, one of the many Tor’s of Cornwall.  Both taken in the evening, the first this June and it was a dull damp evening (the forecast sunset did not happen!!!)  The second taken the same time last year – a much better evening. 🙂






Linking up with Nancy’s photo a week challenge, thanks for looking.

A photo A Week Challenge: (Water)

This is the first time I have taken part in Nancy’s challenge even though I see it every week.  As I am getting back into blogging and photography I felt this week’s theme was a perfect time for me to start.   Here are my offerings for the challenge.  Thank you Nancy 🙂

Lost Gardens of Heligan Part 2

Following of from yesterday’s post about Heligan here are some more images that I took,  the flower garden is looking and smelling amazing at the moment.


Thank you for looking. 🙂




Trip to the Lost Gardens of Heligan, Part 1

Having renew my Heligan Friends membership at the beginning of the month I took myself off there this morning with the sole intention of taking some photos of the birds.  I had the hide to myself for over an hour and considering I haven’t done much photography of late I am very pleased with what I achieved.  For some reason my camera battery is not holding it’s charge lately so although I left the house with a full battery by the time I turned the camera on it was only three quarters full!!!!  Time for a new battery I think – probably dying due to lack of use lol.
