The changes that have been made to the London Docklands in the past 25 years have been among the most striking and most dynamic developments in the world. We decided to take a trip to Canary Wharf with our cameras at night. It was a bit of a challenge for me as I didn’t have a tripod to use so all of these pics are taken using a long exposure and balancing my camera on something I found in the area like steps, tops of bollards etc
Sometimes as a self employed Photographer I get so caught up with taking pictures for other people I forget to take my own pictures for pleasure. On Sunday we went out for a drive to Burnham-on-Crouch and went for a stroll along the prom with our cameras. It was so mild that we stayed out longer than expected and were there as the sun started to set .
It has been claimed that the oak forest in Mundon is first mentioned in the Domesday book. Later, the oaks narrowly missed being cut down for use as masts when a fleet was built to sail against the Spanish Armada.The 14th-century timber-framed Church of St. Mary, built within the remains of the moat of Mundon Hall, and likely on Saxon and Norman foundations, has been disused since the 1970s. Following a long period of remedial work, the church once again re-opened to visitors in August 2009.
