These photos were taken one afternoon during the lockdown, as an experiment with a macro lens and a bottle of Isle of Harris gin. The bottle is beautiful and the images it offers are infinitely varied, although it is interesting that the lens can see less detail than the human eye, probably because of the difference in focal length. Here are just a few.

I don't know if it was the high pressure and fine weather, or the lack of aircraft and road traffic, or a combination of the two, but the air seemed very clear in May. This was a quick snapshot taken on the afternoon of 30th May in bright sunshine while I was mainly photographing starlings (on earth). Today it has been cloudy and raining but that has given me an opportunity to download pictures from the camera.

There is a lot of work to do in the garden at this time of year and the current restrictions mean there is no excuse for not getting on with it. However, it is easy to get distracted and end up taking photos of the garden incinerator with the iPhone. I suppose that's what happens when you get old.
