Autumn Chill

Today is so cold that I dragged my big coat and boots from the loft ready to start wearing again. It felt properly like Autumn and next week it will be October. I haven’t been out for a long time with my camera so, I’m hoping that October will change all that when the colours … More Autumn Chill

Autumnal Equinox

While the county may be enjoying a patch of warm weather, today marks the end of summer months and the start of the autumn equinox.   The autumn equinox, much like the spring equinox, is the date in the calendar when the days and nights are the same length, marking the start of the astronomical autumn season. Both the northern … More Autumnal Equinox

A week in pictures

A selection of powerful news photographs taken around the world this week. I think my favourite is the one taken at Kew Gardens in London. I have only ever been once and that was to see my highly commended image at the International Garden Photographer of the year. I would love to go back and … More A week in pictures

I was really tempted to go out after work to take some photographs of the trees as they are slowly changing … More Golden Brown…

The leaves on the trees that line the River Ouse, slowly starting to change colour. Dragon Boat Racing is the world’s fastest growing … More Dragon Boat Race

A bit of Urban

I don’t usually visit big cities as it’s not my idea of fun, but it was nice to visit somewhere different for a change and have a ride on the River Taxi. It was extremely busy and it’s a shame people aren’t considering others on public transport. I seemed to be the only one wearing … More A bit of Urban

Too hot…!

Well today has been such a scorcher. It’s 27° degrees at 17:00. I don’t know if I’ll get much sleep if it’s still warm tonight! Maybe I should sleep outside in a deck chair! Bad idea, the cats would be jumping around and meowing all night.
