Saturday morning of week 27 saw me lying in the yard with some nice dappled sunlight on the grass.
An American Red Squirrel poses in a patch of sunlight.
A male Eurasian Bullfinch feeds on fresh grass seed heads in a hay meadow.
One from the archives, taken in Cheshire, England in the late 1980s. There wasn’t much land being used for hay even in those days but I suspect that there’s much less now.

I was actually set up in a portable hide (blind) at a Rabbit warren waiting for a Red Fox to show up and start hunting Rabbits. The Fox never appeared but I noticed the early morning light sparkling on the dew drops on the grass seed heads. As I didn’t want to leave the hide in case the Fox made an appearance I was working on compositions from the lens opening and using a mix of telephoto lenses and teleconverters for different framings.
Welcome to my first post. I am David Meredith, I got interested in photography in the mid ’70s, studied it in the late ’70s and have been a photographer ever since.
Originally from Cheshire, England I now live in Ontario, Canada.
This blog will be a combination of a 52 week photo project for 2018 and other posts covering 40 years of my photos. The 52 week photo project is a challenge to myself to shoot as wide a variety of subjects over the next year as possible.
One of my earliest photos, trees in snow. Taken in Hatherton, Cheshire in the mid ’70s using an Olympus OM1 loaded with Ilford FP4.
And a recent photo from a couple of days ago. Grass in snow, taken on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario.
I don’t just photograph flora in snow but you will have to wait for my second post to see if that’s true. As this is my first post there may be layout and design changes to this before a second post.
