A Walk in the Forest


A few days ago we went for a late afternoon walk through the woods at Sandringham. It's quite a trek through the forest so we only explored a small distance before the sun went down :-)

The Sky Tonight

The crescent moon seems clear tonight so I couldn't resist taking a few pictures. The moon didn't turn out too bad although I didn't have much luck with Jupiter :-(
