Wimpole. Yep. Another picnic. 

Another weekend.  More scorching hot weather (so hot in fact we left Wimpole early as there was no shade which made it unbearable).  We made the most of it thought and visited Wimpole Estate in Cambridgeshire.  We took a picnic (this time with lovely fresh English strawberries) and enjoyed our lunch in a shady patch…

Another picnic at Ickworth

Well why not?  The weather has been glorious so why not get out and enjoy it! Also gives me another excuse to take the camera out 🙂 Oh, the rare shot of me is because Richard bought himself a Canon M3 today! Take a look at my previous photos from Ickworth House. 

On our doorstep

In another day of dark, sad news it was lovely to enjoy some space and some light. Cannot believe we have just discovered Orwell Country Park.  6 years after moving to the area we happened across this wonderfully idyllic spot.

A photography day in Lincolnshire

Richard and I took a drive to Lincolnshire today to visit Belton House. The day started quite thundery but thankfully by the time we got there the weather was glorious. We decided to pack our cameras and have a day of gentle walks and shooting whatever caught our eye. It gave me an opportunity to…

VR and Drone Photography

Morning has broken

I have been experimenting with timelapse photography and have managed to capture a sunrise from our bedroom window that I am very pleased with. My camera does not have a timelapse function, this is a combination of using the anti-shake option and an external shutter release.  It sounds complicated but once you get used to…

A brief love affair

You will recall I mentioned not so long ago about being excited to be the owner of a Leica camera.  Well I am about to sell it! Don’t get me wrong, I love it but the photography course I have started ensures that you take all of your photos in manual mode. The Leica can…

Celebrating our 10th Civil Partnership Anniversary 

10 years ago today, Richard and I tied the knot celebrating our union with our civil partnership. I still remember the day like it was yesterday and feel so loved and grateful for that day. I don’t know where the time has gone but we’ve had lots of love and adventures during this time.  Long…
