Winter's walk - Five on Friday

Hello Dear Reader,

I'm afraid I'm late as usual! But I wanted to congratulate Dear Amy, of Love Made my Home, on the first anniversary of her very successful "Five on Friday"!

There is still time, this week, if you would like to join in, as Amy is keeping the link open until 7pm UK Time on Thursday 25th February, 2016.

She has crocheted a lovely heart garland giveaway for this special link-up!

You can read how Amy's link-up works here.


Without further ado here is, or should it be are, (?) my "Five on Friday":

These are a few photographs I took this week at the end of a gloriously sunny, but extremely cold day.

All pictures were taken around the edge of our little local airfield.

View on the airfield
The glorious view that met us at the summit of the hill 
Glider taking off
As we were admiring the view a glider had just taken off -
not easy to photograph, when the target keeps moving!
Dog walkers
There are always plenty of dog walkers around,
enjoying the freedom of the open space. 
Glider landing
Just managed to catch the last glider of the day landing!
Searching for that elusive shot!
Still trying to get that perfect shot!

I took lots more pictures, but I think "Five" is probably just enough to show what a lovely afternoon/early evening it was!

Here's wishing you many more "Five on Friday"'s Amy! Thank you for running your link-up!

And for any stitchers amongst you, I hope to be back here tomorrow, if the light is good enough for some photos!

Lovely photos for this challenge.
I always think of hand-dyed fabrics when I see a sky photo!

Amy at love made my home said...

What wonderful photos!! It must have been very hard to choose just five to share here. The one of the gilder is my favourite! Thank you so much for joining in the anniversary of Five On Friday, I really do appreciate it so much! Have a good weekend! xx

Such beautiful photos - amazing to catch such good photos of the glider.

Thank you for your comment Mary Anne.

I really had fun taking those pics. DH was trying to get me to take the photos of the gliders quicker, but my camera has a delay after taking each picture which slows the process down! So I think the pics I took weren't bad considering!

Have a great weekend.

Oh my gosh - that sky was fab, im not sure I saw the sun on Friday, just grey clouds and rain!!!! Love the silloette (can't spell it!) effects

I was late joining in this week too, shows with the comments. At least we made it to celebrate Amy's anniversary too. I love your photographs, quite magical the skies.

Such beautiful sky pictures. Anxious to see more of your lovely blog.

Lovely photos, my favorite is the two walkers in that light with sunshine it gives a sepia effect. xxx

These photos are gorgeous, well done! I am mesmerised by cloudscapes, I can't help it, the way the light changes, the shapes in the sky. You have captured these beautifully, thank you. x

Wonderful photos with the tree silhouetted against that cloudy sky. Love the rays of sun peeking through :)

Your photos prove my point that winter can be beautiful also. Trees with no leaves remind me of lace.

Love how the setting sun has back lit your photos, beautiful.

That's a great idea to show five pictures from your evening walk.
