The photo below was taken in February last year. The sky was looking very much like it did this past Sunday, grey and not very interesting at all!

The picture I posted for this day as part of Project 365 was ‘The sheep on the marshes’. During the duration of the project, I had to very quickly pick just one picture of all the ones I had taken on a day and post it. Most of the time some of the pictures didn’t even get a second look as I was in too much of a hurry! I am enjoying looking at those pictures now, spending some time editing and appreciating them.

52 Project – W2: Clouds

Hubby’s thoughts behind last week’s theme was… “It’s been raining a lot lately, so there are plenty clouds around for you take pictures of!”.

I should know now that things don’t always work the way you plan them, specially when it comes to the weather. I had planned to leave the picture-taking until the weekend as I would have more time to spend on it. Saturday morning was spent tidying the house and the afternoon with family so I didn’t really have a chance to go outside and look for clouds.

Sunday was going to be the day! I woke up early and went straight to the window to look outside and yep there was a cloud, one single grey cloud covering the sky as far as the eye could see! Hubby and I went out to Tatton Park and walked around for a few hours but still things didn’t look any better. I decided half way through our walk to change this week’s topic to something else as the original one wasn’t going to work! I took the pictures and made my way back to the house.

Once at home, I was looking through my pictures when I saw the picture below. I had taken it a few days earlier with my phone, without realizing I had taken a picture with this week’s topic.

It was Friday afternoon when I returned from work, I got out of my car to walk to the house when I saw the sunset below. I took my phone out and took this one single picture, one single shot and it turned out quite nicely πŸ™‚

Happy Pancake Day to everyone!

Day 332 – Fields

Here is a picture of the same fields as the previous post. This photo was taken at 8:21am and it all looks completely different.

Day 331 – Sun

The 19th of November was the last day of my Project 365. I can’t believe it has been a whole year since I started the project. I have a total of 365 pictures minus two (two days that I missed when hubby was in hospital and when I wasn’t well). Anyway, I hope to complete my posts in the next week or so and then I will be posting a recap of my 27th year.

Going back to day 328, picture taken as the sun was getting ready to set. Happy Friday to everyone!


Day 325 – Sunny Morning

I took the picture below as I walked to my car. It was taken at around half eight in the morning, it was a lovely sunny morning with clear blue skies.

Day 315 – Milk Cows

Here is one of the fields that surrounds our home. I get to see it every morning before I make my way to work and every afternoon when I return home from work. I took this picture on a Monday afternoon, the cows were on the field. I don’t get to see them anymore as the days draw in by the time I get home.

Day 312- Orange Skies

Our new home is located in a semi-rural location and the countryside around is breathtaking. Every morning as I walk to my car I see something different, whether it may just be the fields, a tractor or a tree. Even the sky looks more beautiful. I guess it is because nothing is on the way, nothing that stops me from just standing there, taking it all in and admiring it.

Day 177 – Geese in the Fields

Last Wednesday hubby and I went for a drive around the village of Goostrey. It is a pretty little village close to where we live now. While driving back home I saw all these geese in a field enjoying the sunshine πŸ™‚

Day 175 – Birtles Lane

Last Monday after returning home from work (45 minutes drive), I realized I had forgotten some important papers at work. I needed those papers next morning so I had to go back there. Hubby kindly decided to join me and do the driving, something I was so thankful for as it is a long drive through narrow country lanes. On our way back we stopped on the side of the road and took some pictures around Birtles Lane. The views are very pretty. (iPhone pics)

Day 171 – By the Side of the Road

Last Thursday me and a girl from work went out for lunch; we went to a subway close to our work. It was a wet and miserable looking day. While we waited at the lights I took the picture below. I am not a big fan of the rain but in the plus side it does wonders for the plants. These yellow flowers looked very pretty, they lifted a very grey day πŸ™‚
