photoblog image Clumber Park 1/3

Clumber Park 1/3

2009 Retrospective - I had a number of images I took last year that I would have liked to have posted on SC but time didn't allow.  For the time being I am posting a number of these, in no particular order, which I hope you will enjoy.

Another shot from our autumn walk in Clumber Park near Nottingham.  A large flock of Canada Geese were firmly entrenched on the bank of the lake and made a nice foreground to this view across to the surrounding Sherwood Forest.

Quite a gathering of duck dinners there, Brian.
Brian Walbey: I think the park rangers might have a different take on that idea Ray smile

A fine memory of sunnier days Brian
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed Chris, not a bit like today with more snow falling.
just hope they don't head towards you and watch your step!
Brian Walbey: I know what you mean Charles, I trod very carefully smile

Seems a fair crowd of onlookers on the other side Brian, lovely autumn colours
Brian Walbey: For a Monday it was quite busy Tony, all us retired folks I suppose.

It's a splendid wide-angle view, Brian. I especially like the geese on this side and the people on the other (though I 'spect the people, like you, were on both sides). I'm guessing at some point the geese will swim over to the other side, following the sun?
Brian Walbey: They might well have swum over Ginnie, they had acres of water and parkland to themselves.
Like the picture Brian. The people draw the eye in. whenever I see Mary Poppins i think of the awful cockney accent of Dick Van Dyke!
Brian Walbey: Sorry about that awful memory Bill, the spoiling feature of the film.
Quite an impressive ducks gathering Brian.
Very nicely captured!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard.
Very busy down at the water side.
Brian Walbey: I wonder if they stop all winter or go elsewhere.

interesting capture
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much for your comment.
It has a nice pastoral feel to it - you certainly had a fine day!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom, it was a lovely day out.
They dont seem camera shy, the colours are lovely Brian.
Brian Walbey: My Clumber Park series in the autumn really showed what lovely colours there were there that day Linda.

Good capture Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks vintage.
I see you have Canadian visitors. I should have hitched a line.
Brian Walbey: I wonder if they stay for the winter or move on somewhere warmer Mary.
Hitched a ride is what I meant to say.
Brian Walbey: I gathered what you meant Mary, perhaps you should hitch a ride over here, I suspect you would like Clumber Park.
nice shot Brian...
Taking was a walk in the park no doubt
smile
Cheers
Rob
Brian Walbey: Thanks Rob.
A nice shot bringing back memories of autumn Brian.
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed Janet, thanks for your comment.
Resting and sunning themselves. Lovely shot Brian.

These birds are considered to a menace by some farmers but I like 'em! Give me the birds any day t othe people on the other side of the lake smile
Brian Walbey: You could say that Alan but you would have a whale of a time on the other side with your mountian bike in the hundreds of acres of forests.
i hope we see some of this lovely scene and very soon Briansmile
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed Tim, we need some bright weather like this don't we.
The colours are superb and the 2 tree's being slightly off centre really make the image for me. As for geese, i like them but they dont like me for some reason, every time i see any they drop there heads straighten their necks and run like the clappers towards me. Infact im sure on the odd occasion ive actually heard them shout "CHARGE" smile
Brian Walbey: Lol. Thanks for your comment Dave, you have obviously have something that attracts ducks although I couldn't see what it might be from your picture of you on the M1 smile
I can't believe Canadian geese travel as far as Nottingham, Brian.

Our American neighbors curse the migration of these noisy, dirty & pesky Canadians so I have the feeling the folks around Clumber Park might share the same sentiments.
Brian Walbey: I don't think they are much bother in this massive parkland Beverly, but local to us is a resident flock near a small lake where my son fishes and they do leave a lot of mess behind them, if you know what I mean.
