It’s so important for me to every now and again get outside with my camera and spend time in nature, it’s my happy place, it’s where I find peace and where I can lose myself for hours. So lucky to have a rainbow appear as I was taking shots at Marks Hall (Coggleshall near Colchester).
I was really chuffed to be asked by the Diagnostic Centre in Colchester to provide some images for their walls in the new centre. This evening was the official opening so I took along my dad as my wing man. He looked so smart in his suit, thanks for coming with me dad. Another moment and memory to treasure.
I have been waiting for a fluffy cloud day, perfect to use my ND filter. A few images I took today to go on the front covers of Adams Publishing Magazine ‘Around Colchester’.
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
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.
