January Flicks

What an odd January. Most of it was quite mild and extremely rainy which did not make for good photography. There was, however, one weekend where Jack Frost was on my side, leading to some beautiful glittering bracken photos. These were taken at a common near my home – it’s nothing special, only takes about…

Christmas in the Highlands

Christmas in the Highands Hi Everyone, Happy New Year! I’ve been so MIA, all my hobbies just took a back seat in the last few months as work was full on, but it’s a new year and I’m determined to do better in 2020. Starting with sharing some photos from Christmas. My other half’s parents…

October Flicks

It’s Autumn!! I love Autumn, the colours are phenomenal, it’s one of my favourite seasons, along with Spring. I decided to herald in the season with a pilgrimage to the New Forest. Although the leaves hadn’t quite turned, there were plenty of Fungi about which always get’s me in the Autumnal mood. I love the…

September Flicks

UK Hikes: The Jurassic Coast Lulworth to Warbarrow Bay First we walked out the back of Lulworth, up the hill and then down to the ‘Fossil Forest’ which takes you down to the East end of Lulworth Cove. There were far less people around this side, so we stopped to skim some stones. From the…

August Flicks

Hiking in the Highlands My in-laws live in the Highlands so this August we took a trip up to see them. While we were there we went hiking in Glen Affric – supposedly one of the most beautiful glens in the highlands. We were not disappointed – we completed a 5 mile hike around Dog…

July Flicks

The Butterfly Month There’s no better time to see butterflies than July. So many are on the wing and you can find them in all sorts of environments; woodland, meadow-land, heath, marsh. I absolutely love chasing after them for photos. It’s like these new VR Pokemon and Harry Potter games. Only better, because it’s real…

May/June

I’ve been moving house again and have very little in the way of photographs. I’ve not been out with my camera at all, and the weather’s not helped. I did get a few photos of a rapeseed field on one rare sunny weekend. Hopefully now that I’m settled in, i’ll manage to get out and…

April Flicks

Sorry to have missed a month, I got ill and then just didn’t get out an about to take photos. Plus the weather has still been so dreary and cold; I’m ready for some warmer days now. To make up for it, here’s a selection of the most beautiful blooms and blossoms I’ve seen so…

February Flicks

I’ve taken SO many photos this month! There’s been a wonderful combination of spectacular snow scenery and the first signs of Spring, meaning there’s been plenty to see and do this month. And it’s not even over, I’m off to Devon tomorrow so check back soon for a Devon special! I was lucky enough to…

January Flicks

It’s been a long, hard month. I was lucky enough to get a lot of photos at the beginning of the month during a new years trip to Devon. I went to RHS Rosemoor and they had a fantastic Winter Garden which I’d highly, highly recommend. It was such a relief after months of Winter…
