Month: May 2017

30 days Wild

The Wildlife Trusts in the UK are challenging us all to go wild for the thirty days of June.

My plan is to record a 30 second soundbite on each day and upload it onto my Soundcloud  page.

Once the challenge is over I plan to do some a little special with the recordings, but you’ll have to wait until the end of the month to find out what!

So on the eve of this fun challenge, here’s a little taster of what I think is a Long-Tailed Tit on the Marriott’s Way in Norwich that I heard on my way home this evening.

How I took that Photograph

Luke Jerram’s Museum of the Moon at The Forum in Norwich has been an inspiration to photographers of all ages. Social media is full of amazing shots of the Moon, taken from every angle. Except one, that is. Above it.

But not anymore.

I’m lucky enough to work at The Forum so it wasn’t too difficult to persuade someone to get me onto the roof right over the moon. I knew exactly what I wanted, a clear view looking down on part of the moon with occupied deck chairs close by in a semi circle. (more…)

Up On the Roof

Norwich has some wonderful buildings that require close examination. However, sometimes it’s nice to step back, or step up, and take a look at them from a distance.

I was on the roof of The Forum taking pictures of the Museum of the Moon, which is currently on display for the Norfolk and Norwich Festival, so I took advantage of my elevated view to grab some images looking over our fine city. (more…)
