#life #travel #sunrise #breakfast #morning
I woke up early this morning, the local wildlife were up with the sun. I’m unaware of what they were discussing….probably breakfast, or maybe football ⚽️ . If anybody knows what rooks , blackbirds, song thrushes, and pigeons talk about over breakfast…please let me know
I spotted two aircraft travelling over the skies of Salford this morning. Don’t know where they were going, but I’m sure it was some place nice and hot. Sun is slowly making its way above the horizon in the east, soon it will be bright and sunny
The soft rolling traffic from the early morning Trafford road makes a somewhat pleasant accompaniment to the sound of the ticking clock. But in what’s now known as a twenty four hour society/world , there’s always deliveries to be made, early morning jobs to get to and work to be done
There’s a break in the quiet rumble of the traffic, as a Motorcycle rider mistakes one of the carriageways for a stretch of the Isle of Man TT race course. It’s awoken the pigeons kipping in the eaves of the nearby apartment block.
Another trail of white crosses the Salford skies as the rumble of early morning traffic continues. The broadcasters will be preparing the news items for delivery about now, whilst out on the waterfront, as the deliveries come in and out of the factories of Trafford park, and noise from The Trafford road begins to grow, feathered residents of the nearby basins are flexing their webbed feet , attending to cygnets and goslings all and pondering the really important issues of the day,
What’s for breakfast ?

Who needs evian ?
Coming live from the finest aquifers
rolling and travelling through rivers and streams
filtered through Mountains, Limestone and granite
and stored in great lakes and reservoirs
the purest and freshest water
and its coming direct to the tap

Camera used : Nikon D3100 with 50mm Lens
Sat in the toolshed (my workspace, where i compose this blog)
I took this photo in response to the photo challenge Lines as theres an awful lot of them in it.
with the feathered friends elsewhere – i saw the lines of solar panels on the roof – all set out in formation
then there’s the lines of branches in the tree behind the house
Lines of tiles lining the roof in very tidy order
and last but not least the lines of bricks in the end wall of the semi detached house

My “little” Acer tree, in the back garden of the house
beginning another set of flowers to signal Spring
We bought it from a garden centre in the pennines , quite a few years ago now, and planted it alongside a couple of dwarf conifers and perennials to give the back of the house a bit of colour!
It was caught out by a really hard frost and snowfall in March, when it should have flowered then. The mercury in the thermometer refused to budge, so it slept on till the Easter Holiday, and while i celebrated my birthday – one or two of the flowering buds popped out to say “Hello!”. Soon it’ll be covered in lovely pink and white flowers, and (Northwest English Weather permitting) they’ll be there to brighten up the back garden all the way through summer and early autumn – when it’ll lose its foliage and it’ll prepare itself for the following spring.

lighting up the darkness
for all who seek the light
colours brighten the morning sky
produced by insects that do fly
up the trees and plants around
feeding on nectar, without making a sound
to others they brighten a darkened day
but they’re happy to just fly around and play.

My response to the photo challenge rise/set
A pic of the sun going down at the quayside in Salford
i like the way the waters of Ontario basin caught the sun on the surface of the water
caught the image quite by chance, while out with my Nikon camera, as I’m reletively new to using this kind of camera I was pleased with the final result I got.
