“It was a lovely and exciting night, exactly the kind of night Halloween should be.”
― Eleanor Estes

We spent Halloween in Salisbury, a local town that my Grandma has been wanting to go back to for ages and today we fulfilled that wish! Much shopping commenced (Christmas shopping!) Then once we’d deposited her safely back home to go and visit my Grandad, we ventured up to a local Hill Fort with a picnic and the dog.

Amongst the quiet and beautiful views, we were treated to a gorgeous display from a Barn Owl who decided to drop by. It was stunning and the photos don’t do it justic, but it’s a start!

The colours today have been absolutely beautiful and we were not disappointed! I also have some photographs to share from a recent visit to Savernake Forest but I’ll do another blog post shortly.

When we got home we hastily carved pumpkins ready for the trick or treaters that have already been on the doorstep peering into the sweetie cauldron… muwahahhahaa.

A week off of work awaits us and we’re going to venture out as much as possible to capture the last few signs of Autumn. Just need the properly Autumnal weather to roll in and then we’re all set!

“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”
― L.M. Montgomery

It has only just started to get cold – October is a little bit of a Moctober so far…threatening the frost, the chills and the Autumn colours but not quite delivering them. The good weather gave us a great chance to clear up the meadow and take some photos – three days on the meadow meant that some great shots were gathered! Dogs are tired too which is always an added bonus… So enjoy a little of an English Moctober…







Maisy and Buddy have known each other for almost a year – in fact we’ve known Maisy for almost a year and it has flown past. 2015 has been a bit of a blur in stages and as we enter the last few months I’m keen to grab some more photos to round up the year. Maisy has flourished and enjoys the meadow as much as Buddy does, as long as a tennis ball is involved. She’s started fishing too – or trying to. Her place is by the lake, watching and waiting. I wish life was that simple for adults!






I find more and more these days that I’m taking snaps on my iPhone. I hate it and love it at the same time. Photography is so much more accessible, and the camera is pretty good – and yet I neglect to properly head out with the camera when I’m always snapping. I try as often as I can to make a ‘proper’ camera effort – so these are all DSLR shots.
