What a trek up to this spot I had this afternoon. Snow up to my knees in places and no other track. Nothing like overcoming a challenge to be rewarded with such a stunning scene.
The African paradise flycatcher (Terpsiphone viridis) is a medium-sized passerine bird with a very long tail. It is a common resident breeder in Africa south of the Sahara Desert. The male is boldly coloured in chestnut and black and the female is rather more drab. This bird feeds mainly on insects and builds a tiny cup nest in a tree where two or three eggs are laid. This species is usually found in open forests and savannah habitats.

Location: Beach at Scarborough near Cape Point.
Description: I went down to Scarborough again the other evening, in another attempt to capture that definitive sunset shot!
This little coastal town offers everything that a landscape photographer could ever want… a long unspoiled beach, loads of rocks and rock-pools, a large mountain and best of all… an ocean sunset! Put everything together at just the right moment, and you simply can’t go wrong!?
I used a total of five photographs to create this Vertorama, all taken with slightly different exposures to accurately capture the light from that area. I used one for the sky, another one for the brightest part of the sun (a new trick that I tried for a first time (thanks for the suggestion Alan)), and the third photograph to correctly expose for the light on the mountain. The fourth image had a perfectly exposed ocean, and the fifth captured that beautiful golden light on the sand! Put all those together in exactly the right amounts… and you simply can’t go wrong!?

As you have probably worked out I went to Stourhead yesterday to check out the Autumn colours. I think it has probably peaked right about know so if you were planning a trip very soon would be a good idea.
Next day our plan was to hike Havasu Creek all the way down to the Colorado River to see the famous confluence where the beautiful creek and the mighty river meet. Why is it famous? Because while the color of the creek stays vibrant blue-green throughout the year due to large amounts of calcium carbonate in the water, the colors of the river changes to green because of algae or light tan or reddish brown because of silt, depending on the season and/or area. So, it is fun to see the two streams of water merge. Well technically the river is bigger, wider and deeper, so it’s appropriate to say that the creek joins it, but the fascination lies where these distinctive colors merge. On our way down to the river, we made a brief stop at Beaver Falls and enjoyed the stunning cascading waterfalls.
Had a cracking few minutes when this guy decided to investigate why I was hiding in the heather.

Brean Down . This amazing little bird is very confiding and will come to check you out if you perch on a rock and wait.Probably the most photographed bird in Somerset.. A challenging day as the light only improved for about 30 mins, that's the Bristol channel for you . Pleased with the results though.
