Welcome

Welcome to 'My Life Outside', the personal blog of Adam Tilt through which I aim to share with you the places that I visit and the wildlife that I see on my travels around the UK. My primary interest is in birds and bird photography, but when they aren't playing ball I turn my attention to pretty much everything else.

I am based in a village on the outskirts of Swansea, South Wales. My regular haunts include the Gower Peninsula, the Burry Inlet, Pembrokeshire and the Isle of Mull - all locations with stunning scenery and a vast array of wildlife. Many of the posts on this blog serve as a diary through which I detail my adventures and show the photographs that I have taken. I aim to impart some of my local knowledge along the way and encourage others to get out exploring for themselves. If you want to get involved then please leave comments and follow the blog.

Leap Year Sunset

Leap Year Sunset

Today for the first time this year I was home from work before the sun had disappeared below the horizon. I had just enough time to dash up the hill behind our house with the camera before an errant bank of cloud blocked the developing sunset from view. Given that it is such an easily accessible location I have always bemoaned its lack of foreground material when it comes to photographing sunsets, so to find this perfectly positioned tree was very nice indeed. Now I wonder if the farmer would be willing to remove that fence.....

Gorgeous shot, Adam! Great elements with the tree and fence, too!

Super sunset, and I know a farmer who'll remove the fence for you: Farmer P. Shop.

This is so beautiful but actually, I quite like the fence. It adds a bit of rigid structure.

I am glad to hear you are arriving home in daylight. Apparently the problem of rickets is back in the UK.

All kidding aside about the farmer might be willing to do, that would be a very easy fix in Photoshop of any editing tool with a clone stamp. I have to say though, that the fence doens't bother me. It's a lovely photo either way.

Thanks everyone for your comments. Looks like the fence has a few fans so I guess it can stay in place for now.

Andrew - I did see the moon and tried to photograph it but without much success. If I'd know the significance of it on that date I would have tried a lot harder!
