|Ian and Malc|
|John Bayliss turned up for a natter stopping the work.|
|The footbridge definatly needed a coat of paint.|
|The Hatherton Junction Arm|
This morning with the wind having picked up and the rain not having materialised, both Ian and Malc finished the prep work on the bridge and started with the white paint.
|And the finished product. Pretty good if you don't look to closely.|
Then just as they finished (they actually ran out of paint so the other side will have to wait) the heavens opened. We had it all thunder, lightning, hail and winds that blew with such a force some of the leaves were stripped from the trees. Not seen Ian and Malc run back to the respective boats so fast. Ian was dripping by they time he got back.
|And after the rain.............|
|Dark thunder clouds in the distance with blue skies over head.|
I love this place. Pelsall Common is a stones throw from me and I thought I would have another go with my macro lens. Here are just a few of the hundreds of photos I took.
|This tiny spider was no bigger then a nail head. You can even see the hairs on the leaf.|
|No idea what this is. Could be a beetle|
|and lurking in it is......|
|Again not sure what it is,|
|Fly on gorse flower|
