On Top of a Sandstone Crag by Starlight

This a my day 30 contribution to Becky’s April Square Tops photo challenge and a follow-up of sorts to my day nine contribution.

A thank you to Becky for a fun month of squares. Given that our internet connection was flaky at the start of the month and I ended up in hospital a week ago I’m amazed that I only missed one day.

This is Beeston Castle on top of a sandstone crag in Cheshire. The lines across the sky ar star trails. If I recall correctly this is an 100 minute exposure taken in the middle of the night. I was one of the volunteers protecting a Peregrine nest site on the cliff face below the castle.

Red Maple Leaf on Top of a Boulder

This is my day 26 contribution to Becky’s April Square Tops photo challenge.

An update, I am no longer in isolation after the Covid-19 test came back negative. Otherwise there’s been no change, my heart rate has dropped a little but is still high and I still can’t do much before I’m short of breath.

To the photo, I had gone down to the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline for the sunrise but there wasn’t much of one. I started looking at some of the autumn colour and some of the textures and colours of the lichens growing on the boulders on that section of the shoreline.

While looking for interesting groups of lichens I found this nicely coloured Maple leaf on top of a boulder.

On Top of Santa’s Stables

This is my day 25 contribution to Becky’s April Square Tops photo challenge.

It was supposed to be my day 24 contribution but shortly after posting day 23 I ended up in the local E.R. before being admitted to hospital. I am posting this from my hospital room.  As the various doctors seem to be playing a guessing game as to why my heart is racing and my list of symptoms is growing with the time I spend in hospital I’m not expecting to be out anytime soon.

As a result my posts will become erratic until I am discharged from the hospital.
