Hunting a grey heron at the local lake. A frequent visitor at one time, this bird continually eluded my efforts for a photo. Finally got him!
Classic Cars in the Brackley Piazza – 2019. I arrived a bit late, but, out of a turnout of over 120 cars, there were still a few left.
A pretty swan on the lake. I spotted this swan on the local lake. A nice image but very busy. De-saturating the image to just a hint of colour improved it.
Business trips aren’t always the best for photo opportunities. Given the right hotel and a sunrise, with camera in hand, here’s a nice sunrise in Leeds.
Photos from a trip to Switzerland. Interesting clouds over lake Geneva and the mountains, catching the sunset. And the fork at Vevey.
Like the edge of the world. A photo Taken near the lighthouse on Caldey Island, a short boat ride from Tenby in Pembrokeshire.
A river of clouds in the moonlight. I spotted this weird cloud formation a couple of nights ago. I’ve never seen anything like it. Lumix TZ100, using the handheld nightshot function. Not a lot I
The Lighthouse at Umhlanga Rocks, taken from the Lighthouse Bar in the Oyster Box Hotel.
If you want to catch great sunset photos you need to see the sunset. Missed this one but at least I caught the last of the light in this pretty sunset.
Spring and summer, with flowers blooming and the insects waking up, is great for a bit of garden and flower photography. Out
Hook Norton Brewery. I did a tour of the brewery with an overseas based friend. A great day out and very interesting. The brewery is an interesting mix of old and new. The Photo Have

Summertime. In the countryside. On a sunny day. Just sit back and listen to the buzzing of the bees as the flit from flower to flower collections pollen. I was there with my camera (Lumix
A plump pigeon enjoying the late afternoon English spring sunshine. More to the point was checking the operation of the LUMIX TZ100’s digital zoom. Impressive I think.
It seemed to take forever after a cold winter. Finally we had a great sunny spring day.

A little crab near its burrow on a tropical beach. These little crabs hide under the sand at hight tide, popping out to forage when the tide is low. Get too close and they will scurry back to the hole for safety.
Winter nights are not a time when I would choose to go out in the snow. But the shadows in the snow cast by the house lights on the fresh garden snow really intrigued me enough to take a camera outside.
It is amazing where you will find the little robin. I saw this little guy at work. Outside in a break area, he was right at home wlaking around people’s feet and picking up scraps.

This little red breast robin defied the gale force winds to come and sit on our fence, feathers all ruffled. It was a windy day, not great for little birds to be out.
A Golden Coffee Mug On Holiday in Mozambique. It’s Christmas and I have my camera (why wouldn’t I?). There’s just one problem. The sun rises at 4:30 a.m. I didn’t make too many morning golden
That was 2017. A busy and fun year for us. Here it is, all summed up in glorious Colour photos. Have a look at the blog for the bigger stories.
Sitting on a station platform waiting for a train a little after golden hour one morning. The view made an interesting photo. Come and see.
A pretty scene of a house on a hill in the mists. Taken in the wine lands near Hermanus in the Western Cape area of South Africa, near Cape Town. What a beautiful place to
