Walking in the fields.

  Since getting Purdey, our new puppy two weeks ago I have not stopped, there has not been much time for photography I can tell you. I can’t wait until she’s old enough to take over the fields. I love this shot of my daughter walking through the corn fields last year! I can’t get […]

White Instagram gallery

   My Instagram gallery has always been inspired by the seasons, and it’s not just about what’s in season, no, I mean it’s the light, and the way it makes me feel. I’ve noticed my gallery looking very white and I’m favouring a faded look to my pictures.  I could never be of the type […]

Still life, blossom

         February is one of my favourite months, winter is making way for Spring, and there is new life blossoming. Yesterday I spent a rather chilly day at Angelsey gardens just outside of Cambridge, despite the drizzle I managed to take a few blossom shots. The smell was amazing- winter honeysuckles and daphne […]

Winter berries.

   A pop of red against a winters light always makes for a striking photo. Im not usually a fan of red, but in the depths of winter, when these berries hang like ruby jewels I’m greatful for their statement. Cold natural light, Fuji DSLR, vintage 100mm Nikon lens, ISO 400, shutter 125, f4.

Still life, burst.

   Bursts of Spring are emerging throughout the countryside, I love the promise, it’s unbreakable, and beautiful. I love taking pictures at this time of year, the light is gorgeous with just a hint of warmth but still further on the cool side, it’s sometimes hazy which makes for a real atmospheric shot, and my […]

Spring still life.

   A very whimsical Spring shot I took last year on my Fuji DSLR with my favourite vintage Nikon lens that I pinched from my dad, yes he does know, ha, I’m always pinching his camera equipment. I just love the simplicity of this little pink bell and the texture of the cut glass, so […]

Texture, still life

I love wandering round farms, I know some may find that strange, but the textures of old bits of farm machinery really do make for an interesting capture. I love the detail of these chains and the colours. Shot with my old Fuji dslr with a vintage 100mm nikon lens, cool daylight, iso-400, shutter 125, […]

Tulips.

   A very simple bunch of tulips for a cheery flat lay shot. Such a happy flower full of the promise of Spring. I can’t begin to tell you how excited I get every time I walk around our cottage garden and see new bulbs emerging! It’s been a little odd as we had daffs […]
