I have decided to keep a Journal of how the natural world changes around where I live. Of the things I see that interest me. I may not always know the names of the trees and plants, birds, animals and insects that I will photograph but I will have fun doing it and perhaps I will learn something new about my surroundings.

Just ‘out of my back gate’ is a lane which continues on the other side of the main road. So this is the title of my Journal I know that there will be times when I am not at home and I will still want to include the things I see but it will still be ‘out of my back gate’

Night Glow

This photo was taken at nearly midnight, the long exposure with the orange glow of the street light made it look as if the clouds where glowing


  1. Love the silhouette against the red sky, its a lovely photo Mary!

  2. Wow I love that photo Mary - the sun is almost twinkling!

  3. Hello Mary,
    All of the pictures are wonderful! To some extent your interest is very similar to mine. Both of us concern and pay attention on the nature and the environment.
    Cheers Erka

  4. Mary, you look as if you are enjoying your new camera. This is a fab shot, love the glow in the sky.
