Quick Coastal Trip

Just a quick update this week, as a busy weekend meant there wasn't much time to get out and about with the camera. We did however get to visit our family at the coast on Saturday, meaning we could get out for a walk along the Medway Estuary. We timed the walk so we could... Continue Reading →

Weekend Walkies

We had finally ventured out to get some petrol, now that the idiotic and selfish panic buying had subsided somewhat, so we were able to get away from the town at the weekend and into the country. We didn't go far, just to our usual walk around the local woods, and then off to the... Continue Reading →

Wrong Decision

There was a choice....and I think I made the wrong one. We had very little time, and really only two familiar destinations that made sense - the reservoir, or the forest. The forest was closer, involved no motorway driving, and we hadn't been there for a few weeks - on the other hand, the reservoir... Continue Reading →

Sunset Success

After the events of our last trip to the coast, where I feel I missed an opportunity to take some great photos - I was keen to get some good new photographs under my belt. The forecast was good for some sunset photography, so we set off for the reservoir with the aim of doing... Continue Reading →

Fresh Air Required

After days of hot weather, where temperatures were over 30 degrees inside our home, day and night, we decided to take an impromptu trip to the coast in the evening to try and cool off. The weather was forecast to be clear and bright, with a slight sea breeze, which would still be better than... Continue Reading →

Mosquito Hike

Just a quick blog today - managed to get in a short hike at the Forest, mainly for exercise, but to also get some photographs if the conditions allowed for something interesting. We hiked down into the woodland from the car park, hoping to see some wild deer, but none were about - I think... Continue Reading →

Quick Forest Hike

We decided last minute to go to the Forest for a hike, I took the camera in case an opportunity arose, but I wasn't expecting much to be honest as the sky was quite bright and clear and the forecast was for it to remain that way. We parked at the top of the hill... Continue Reading →

Failed Cornfield Sunset

Last night, we drove specifically to a cornfield we had seen on one of our early morning walks. I had checked the positioning of the sunset on my Sunset AR app, and it looked good to return to photograph the sunset when the conditions allowed. It wasn't a long walk from where we managed to...

First August Sunset

Forecast looked good, sunshine and cloud forecast from 7pm to 10pm, so we headed off to the reservoir to photograph our first sunset of August. We arrived around 7.15pm, as we had a slightly longer hike to get to a new spot. I had identified a new area on Google maps where it looked like... Continue Reading →

Saturday Local Hike

Back to our local hikes, first time in ages as it had been too hot for so long now. We decided on an extended route, parking in our usual spot but venturing around some new roads. We hadn't gone more than a few yards from the car, when we stumbled upon a pair of roe... Continue Reading →
