“All you’ll own is earth until you can paint with all the colours of the wind.”

There are some things that just need to be captured on camera, to be remembered forever. Not huge moments – not all the time. Today whilst we were wandering through a frosty forest, the first thought that hit me when I raised the camera and took a shot of nothing but nature was… ‘It’s so nice not to be photographing someone’s face.’ Don’t get me wrong, I’ve loved the Weddings that we’ve had this year and every single one has been fantastic and such an experience. But today was about photographing anything. And it felt so good to be doing it again.



Photographs don’t have to be perfect, but I was impressed with the below capture. Fog, sunshine, rays, cobwebs…all so hard to capture spontaneously and never how they showed up in real life. I looked closer at the below image and noticed the cobweb hanging down through the middle of it, covered in ice. I was almost annoyed at the interruption within my perfect scene. Almost. Then I realised it was all part of the perfect scene.



Today we had some bits and pieces to do so we decided to take hot tea and just drive for a bit, and capture what we could of the morning fog. A curse for so many but a delight for photographers! All of these captures were taken literally on our doorstep. The forest that borders where we live is home to some beautiful scenes, it’s just a huge pain to get to with the dog as the road leading to it has no paths or pavement. So she doesn’t feature today sadly.



So back to those small moments that need to be captured every so often. Today I ticked a few off the list – an image of exactly what it looks like when all around you branches are creaking and frost is melting. That spiders web gently swinging laden with frost. The tiny dew drops framed in sunlight. The shadow of trees as the sun streams through them. Everyday things sometimes, but so beautiful when you have the time to stop and look at them all.


New Years resolution for 2017 – there will be more Photos. Promise.

β€œIt 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!
