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…

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…

December Flicks

Winter Snow Scenes Nature Flicks Hi All, It’s been manic, I haven’t been out with my camera in months. And the weather hasn’t exactly been aesthetic – just constant rainfall and grey. It’s been horrible month, works been manic and I’ve had a horrid cold. So i’m going to post some pictures from this time…

Camping In Wales

Hiking in Snowdonia Nature Flicks In August, T and I went camping in a Tipi in Wales. It was my first real camping trip, save the odd dalliance as a teen. We stayed at a secluded eco site on an organic sheep farm deep in the Dyfiddi Forest. To reach the site we had to…

August Flicks

  The Summer Holidays have been wet and dreary. I was glad for the rain, as everything had become so parched, and I was glad for the cooler weather as it really had been too hot, but my photos this month have not looked very summery. We went to Avebury, a neolithic site of stone…

April Flicks

A belated post, apologies. The end of April was sunny and beautiful. The Blackthorn blossom burst to life like frothy clouds. These hedgrow bushes are the preferred egg laying plants for some of the hairstreaks, black, white, brown. The black can only be found in one small area, part of which is in Oxfordshire, so…

Signs of Spring

I’m hoping this will serve as a bonus post (providing I can get some more shots later in the month) to make up for the limited photos in March Flicks. Last week there was one day where the sun shone without a cloud in the sky. I went for a walk up on Barbury Castle…

February Flicks

It feels weird to sit here posting this late. My February photos are all of the first signs of Spring, and then March 1st brought a blanket of snow. Everything seems to have been put on pause. Let’s hope Spring returns soon! In the meantime – I hope you enjoy looking back at February’s flicks!…
