Having fun with macro


I am having a little fun with a microscope. The aim is to make sure that my bees have no horrid disease, or other ailments. In the meantime I am playing taking photographs with my ordinary camera, shooting down the lens of the microscope.

This evening in the garden


Today has been yet another day of gorgeous sunshine and heat. Yesterday I fired one of my kilns, today it is the cooling period. This means the door of the kiln is opened a little to let the heat out of the kiln.

All of this is fine in the winter months, however that is not the case in July.

This is how I occupied myself in the late afternoon.

It is now 10.00 pm and still 26°c.
