Hightown dunes in September

Summer is over and down on the coast things are changing.

At the beginning of the month there were still lots of butterflies on the wing, mainly the Common Blue and the small tortoiseshell but by the end of the month these had disappeared and most of the flowers had gone to seed.

There were still patches of colour provided by the Michaelmas Daisy and clover.

Most of the activity seemed to be overhead with flocks of geese heading to and from their feeding grounds in their characteristic V shaped flight formation.

I was down the beach this morning and only took one photo, it was of a dandelion clock which seemed to signify the passage of time and the changing of the seasons.

My aim is to create a photo diary of my walks and my travels. I have two main hobbies, walking and photography and these complement each other. I am a senior citizen, what used to be called an old age pensioner, but I don't feel old. Since retirement I have had more time to pursue my hobbies and the opportunity to travel more. My philosophy now is - Do what you can, while you can. My other interests are fine wines and keeping fit. These may not complement each other but keep me happy.
