Joined my wife up at the stables this morning, as her riding partner wasn't well. I'm still trying to capture the swallows in flight; and still failing miserably. I did however have this bit of luck when one took off just as I was taking a photograph. I'm a great believer in try, try and try again and at this rate I might get something decent before they head south for the winter.
I also found myself awake before dawn and popped out just in time to catch sunrise, you can see it as an extra.
