Welcome to my blog.
Don't expect anything too high-tech or flashy, this is simply a 'diary' to share some of my photos, thoughts and observations - with a particular bias towards the natural world and the countryside around my home.

As it has been so dull and rainy at home this morning, it's nice to look at the sunny pictures from Portugal. From the cliff tops, the views out to sea were beautiful.
As the sun appeared and disappeared behind the clouds, it threw some wonderful light effects on the sea's surface as well as those multicoloured cliffs.
Even when the clouds became a little more threatening, the light was still goo enough for some lovely shots.
And down at beach level too we had some great views.
At this time of year, we were not expecting to see much in the way of flowering plants, but the Almond Blossom was already showing through on some of the trees, promising a good harvest of almonds later in the year.
