Knowing where to look

I’m not very good at people. I’m much better at animals, insects, flowers, etc. If you were to ask where does Mr Whatever live, I’d probably have no idea, unless he was one of the few people in my village that I do know. But if you were to ask where can I find someContinue reading “Knowing where to look”

Gentle Giants

Yesterday my daughter and I went to Dyfed Shire Horse Farm again and had a lovely time. The Shire horses are so big but so gentle and sweet natured. Even with something so big it can be worth looking closer, and I enjoyed getting some photos of their beautiful eyes as well as stepping backContinue reading “Gentle Giants”

Portraits of flowers

We are fortunate that whatever the weather, whatever the time of year, it is possible to buy fresh flowers. I prefer wild flowers but all flowers are beautiful to me. I decided to take photos of some flowers I bought a couple of weeks back as they are still looking good. Rather than taking photosContinue reading “Portraits of flowers”

Nature’s Strength

The light and the leaves together were beautiful. I’m not sure my photos entirely capture the feeling, butContinue reading “Golden Light”

Big Jumps

When I’m not taking photos of small things like flowers and insects, I take photos of rather larger things… namely horses! My daughter loves to ride and I often find myself sitting in field in the rain taking photos at competitions. In this event I sat near this huge log jump and was happy toContinue reading “Big Jumps”

Beech

My Beech tree is changing colour beautifully although there’s a long way to go until all the green is gone. The changed leaves look lovely and golden brown in the sun 🙂 Inspired by the Lens Artists Photo Challenge: Changing or changeable I just discovered this new photo challenge (even though it has been goingContinue reading “Beech”
