FRIDAYS HUNT and WEEKEND REFLECTIONS

Time again for Friday’s Hunt and Weekend Reflections and today’s letter is Y, Favourite and Splash.  Y is for YELLOW and I thought the first shot had a wonderful SPLASH of colours and you can see the YELLOW is SPLASHed throughout it.  Also my YELLOW clogs are slighly on the big size for me!!.  These 2 images were taken when i visited the Keukenhol Gardens in Amsterdam this year..





Not only is this a REFLECTION image above but you can see the YELLOW lights in the background of the hotel and also the way the water fountain makes a SPLASH on the water.  These images was taken on our way back to the hotel after an evening cruise in Amsterdam.  





While we were in Amsterdam we visited the Rijks Museum and in the garden they have this fountain and it was such fun to watch as all the jets did not come up at the same time and people tried to get inside the whole fountain before they got wet and then had to try and get out again before they even got one SPLASH of water on them. Often they did not succeed!  Two if us had a go.


I was away for the weekend on Great Saltee Island, near Kilmore Quay in Wexford and while waiting for the boat to take us to the mainland I photographed the waves as they dashed against the rocks creating a huge SPLASH.

WILD BIRD WEDNESDAY

These are the Black Guillemots that return every year to nest in our Bangor Pier and they are so tame that you can get within about 8 feet of them.  I am linking this post with Wild Bird Wednesday.

SUNDAY THOUGHT

Lift up your heads, you gates; lift them up,
you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in.

GOOD FENCES - Quar Abbey

While walking round the grounds of Quarr Abbey on the Isle of Wight, I met these two interesting guys in the vegetable plot although they did not have a lot to say!  I think they were a bit 'stuck up'!  The Robin was friendlier.
