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 →

Not So Grim Up North

It was finally here - the little break we had been looking forward to so much. We would be staying in Northumberland, in between the National Park and the coast. The weather forecast was mixed, but favorable for the time of year, and I was looking forward to getting out with the camera, ,enjoying some... 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 →

My Best Photograph Yet

A hike around the reservoir was the order of the day, so I took the camera bag just in case, as seems to be the 'norm' these days. We arrived a bit earlier than usual, wary that the evenings are drawing in a bit, and sunset is now around 8.15pm. We parked the car in... Continue Reading →

Estuary Sunset Walk

Back to my hometown for the weekend just gone, and I had checked the tides times and seen we were due to have a reasonable tide still present at sunset in the estuary. Near my home town, I am limited to access to the sea wall to photograph, and knew that I may not get... 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...
