Emergence - My Sunday Photo 250617

Emergence – My Sunday Photo 250617 I went to Rousham House with my photography class on Friday.  It was my first visit, but it definitely won’t be my last. I spent a lot of time at the pond watching the emergence of a number of dragonflies.  It took me back… Continue reading »

Taking photographs at Crocodiles of the World

Taking photographs at Crocodiles of the World

I’ve recently discovered the strange experience of visiting places I’ve been to before with my son, without him.  It’s really quite a weird feeling to actually be able to stand still and admire things without having to dash around at 90 miles an hour.  As I’ve mentioned before, this term… Continue reading »

Raindrops on Petals - My Sunday Photo 180617

Raindrops on Petals – My Sunday Photo 180617 Looking back through photos of my parents visit earlier this month, hoping we’ve seen the last of the rain for a while. Although raindrops on petals always look so pretty.   Don’t you think?

Enjoying Wheatley Birds of Prey

Enjoying Wheatley Birds of Prey

Last month I spent a few hours with my photography class enjoying Wheatley Birds of Prey.  It wasn’t somewhere I’d been before and as I love seeing these beautiful birds, I was really excited to be going along.  Our tutor had arranged for us to have a couple of hours with… Continue reading »

A beady eye - My Sunday Photo 110617

A beady eye – My Sunday Photo 110617 I went to Crocodiles of the World on Friday with my photography class.  I’d been a couple of years ago with my son and it’s well worth a visit.  This time round the focus, quite literally was on getting some half way… Continue reading »

Pirate Tombstone - My Sunday Photo 210517

Pirate Tombstone – My Sunday Photo 210517 It’s strange the things you come across in the heart of Northamptonshire!  We visited Canons Ashby a few weeks ago and popped over to the church to have a look round, and there was this rather strange gravestone.  Could it be a pirate… Continue reading »

Enjoying the bluebells at Wytham Woods

Enjoying the bluebells at Wytham Woods

For Stage 3 of my photography course we are spending more time out on location.  For our first trip we spent a couple of hours enjoying the bluebells at Wytham Woods.  Found on the outskirts of Oxford, it’s not somewhere I’d been before and I was looking forward to a nice… Continue reading »

Furrowed Field – My Sunday Photo 140517

Furrowed Field - My Sunday Photo 140517

Furrowed Field – My Sunday Photo 140517 It’s quite strange to walk through a furrowed field, it doesn’t feel the right thing to do.  But it was a public footpath and the route was well trodden.  It was stranger still to remember the last time we walked that way, on… Continue reading »

Knight about to charge - My Sunday Photo 070517

Knight about to charge – My Sunday Photo 070517   It doesn’t matter how many times we visit the Jousting Tournament at Blenheim Palace, we never tire of it.  We always seem to back the wrong side though!  The reds won again. Have you ever watched one of these events?

Fields of Gold - My Sunday Photo 300417

Fields of Gold – My Sunday Photo 300417 We spent the end of our Easter holidays with my best friend in Derbyshire.  We always seem to be there when the Rapeseed plants are in full flower.  I love the fields of gold, they just brighten up any day.
