Leap. Header Challenge

As today is Leap day and it was my turn to choose this weeks theme for our header theme challenge this week. I have decided to go with the theme of "Leap".
Having chosen the subject however nothing leapt into the frame this week for a picture along that theme.
I did think I could have used a picture of our cat Garfield as a kitten leaping for a ribbon...

but instead I have chosen to go with a picture of my daughter leaping across a gap whilst running along a wall.

I wonder what the other headbangers have leaped to choosing this week why don't you follow their links on the right hand menu bar and find out.


I'm feeling a little "blue" this week, not the emotion fortunately but the colour. Tom has chosen for our little header challenge theme this week the colour "Blue", now yes I could have gone out and found some very glum looking people and photographed them, but, I'm not sure what type of header that would have made. I wanted something a little more happy and bright and colourful.

So with that in mind I thought back to our recent family trip to London where one of the stores we happened to visit is the M&M's World in Leicester Square.

Now this place is full of millions of m&m's for sale in every type of packaging imaginable. Other than the sweets what we also found really good was the life sized m&m's placed around the store many dressed up in various outfits. On the bottom floor was the best one though the iconic Beatles m&m, Abbey Road M&M Road zebra crossing. Striding out at the front is our proud "Blue" m&m...

as you can see the family joined in on the act.

If that's sweetened your taste buds for more photo's then why not head over to have a look at the blogs of the other headbangers to see what they have decided to post under the theme of Blue. Come back soon though.
When gailsman first came up with this weeks theme of "lets get out of here" for our header challenge I knew straight away what picture I wanted to use.

We are having a loft conversion done at the moment, well its pretty much done, but this is the moment they broke through the roof for the first time to install our first Velux window...

 a true "lets get out of here moment" though I don't know where he would have gone...

I don't think he had wings like these birds to be able to fly away in their lets get out of here moment...

Remember to fly over to the other headbangers blogs to see what they have devised for their headers this week, just follow their links in my right hand menu bar.

Snow Macro's

I decided to play a little when we had snow on Friday and took a couple of close-up shots...

Our dog Corky seems to come alive whenever there is snow in the garden, he loves it...

Although it looks as if he thinks the snow is a bit cold.

A very snowy looking Corky! 

Sunrise over snow

We awoke to a beautiful sunrise over the fresh falling snow this morning so I just had to take a photo of it...

Garden Birds. Header Challenge.

Well I've been taking a little blogging siesta while I completed my university dissertation but I've been encouraged by my family and headbanger friends to start blogging again so here I am back at the computer and back out with the camera, now that I've finished the dissertation and it is all handed in. Well the first one the course I am doing requires two so I have another one to do before I finish in the summer.

This weeks theme was therefore given to me to choose. As it was the big garden Birdwatch in the UK recently I decided what better than to go for "garden birds" it would also give me a chance to test out my new lens that I got the 150-500mm F5-6.3 APO DG OS HSM from Sigma.

First I put some food out for the birds some apple for the blackbirds this one seems a greedy one and is taking a couple of pieces at once.

Some fat balls for the Blue tits.

Seed for the Chaffinches

Even the Robin showed up for some seed.

I was trying to get some of the birds actually in flight coming into the feeders which proved trickier than I hoped but I did get a couple of shots.

The header shows a full house on one of the feeders, they were and still are seemingly very hungry birds.

Have a look to see what the other headbangers have devised for their take on "garden birds" just follow their link in my right hand menu bar.
