For weeks I have had a plan for today, but then a few moments ago I realised it just wasn’t going to work! You see today is the day that the fabulous Clare encourages us to change our desktop. Well I wanted to use this lovely shot. I had already retrieved it from my Monday Portrait collection as I just love how the light falls on (or is it underneath) the tail.

I thought it would be perfect for my desktop. But then just now when I did the desktop change, it just didn’t work. The light is still great but the focus isn’t good enough for my big screen. There was a momentarily panic as the post was seconds away from being published. I quickly unscheduled and had a look back to that day when I just couldn’t decide on desktops. So many choices! I nearly went for the gulls as I had already told Brian and Clare I had gone for a bird desktop again. However the gull was looking at me too closely, and it has been a square. So I looked at my phone and I found this Hampshire view, taken just a few days or so ago. You’ve seen an autumnal version taken just around the corner, this is the summer version and I am pleased to say it works well as a desktop.

PS David this post could be considered an obscure hint for October!

  1. Oh come on Becky. None of us knows what you ACTUALLY have on your desktop. I don’t think you’ll blaze in the eternal fires of hell if you actually can’t put your chosen image up. It’s the thought wot counts. Or you could do as I do and have a randomly changing desktop whose photos aren’t even mine. It was there when I got my computer. Mind you, then you definitely couldn’t enter this challenge.

  2. I do love your Monday Portraits, Becky, and that tail does look well lit. However, I adore the view of (somewhere in) Hampshire. It looks so inviting. Thank you for sharing with me and joining in on this desktop sharing fun πŸ₯°
