There's nothing like two days without electricity to make you really appreciate the stuff when it returns.  The poor Western Powermen were still swarming over the village as we walked the dogs after 6pm yesterday, so we were not entirely sure if they would get everything finished in time.  But apparently they did.

Sadly this photo does not really communicate the full coppery wonder of the shining wires. They  sparkled in the sunlight.   More photos under cut.

Took my new lens for an evening walk. 1:1.4 requires precise fiddling to get things sharp.

Then I let the light climb inside and bounce about having fun to see what would happen. Mostly what happened was rainbow blobs.

The Sarumanic quarry was looming menacingly  on the horizon as we got back.

Continuing the electricity theme, I discovered that on a clear day, you can just see a wind turbine from the village.

The blackbirds like electricity too, it seems, even at bed-time.

Hooray electricity!

I rather like the rainbow blobs esp. the photo with the red blob on the far right.

I love lens flare! I did a photography course once and the tutor was terribly sniffy about it, apparently it is not a thing that proper photographers like. I shall have to live with being improper... :-D

That quarry is shiny and menacing and windowlessly efficient, most unlike the ancient mines beneath it in which Balrogs lurk and gibber*. :-D

*they can if they want!

The last one is impressive. It took my eyes a while to adjust to darkness before I could see anything though ).

Hard to capture things in a photo - you will have to imagine him singing his heart out in the dusk....

    There are no zones with different rules in Moscow, but still it was impossible to guess in spring what was or wasn't allowed to do; and now the situation is only a little better. Seems it happens in…

    Thank you! I may try it later today then.

    My sourdough also isn't big on the doubling in size - and it does make good bread. I think you can probably give bread a go.

    I'm not sure whether we were in Tier 1 or 2 at that point...

    LOL. Yeah, I've given up all hope of making sense of these shifty weird rules.

    Love all the waterside encounters!

    Wow! We get huge aircraft carriers in Brooklyn occasionally but I have never shared the water with one.
