It’s after Christmas and so there should be at least one frosty day. At least one opportunity for hats, scarves and gloves and hot chocolates by the far. Instead we’re watching Daffodils bloom, grass grow, trees sprout and animals run around like it’s the middle of Spring.

It just doesn’t feel right! However it was nice to spend a few hours sitting on the meadow enjoying the fact that the temperature was manageable and the ground warm.




In the North of the country it’s a different story. Yes, the temperature may be good but the water levels are rising and the floods are horrendous. This time two years ago most of the meadow was underwater and yet we’re barely squelching through the grass to get onto it this year.




It’s bizarre. Scary too. The weather around us is changing so much and so quickly. Who knows when we’ll next see snow!

Photography today has given me the spark to think about what my next photo-project will be. 2016 will feature a few more Weddings, some trips here and there but above all that, an epic holiday to the USA. I’m considering whether the photo-a-day challenge will fit with my life this year or not… watch this space!

The best thing about not having to blog everyday – is having more time to work on the photos! These were taken almost a week ago. Imagine that! It’s a Photo-graphical Revolution…! These were taken on a short walk to blow the cobwebs away after the rain and snow had cleared last weekend. The weather since has been up and down, predominantly windy!



So I experimented a while with Lightroom to get these images how I wanted. I then messed up when saving, and therefore had to fiddle all the settings again. It was much quicker the second time around, but isn’t quite how I had it before which is a shame!



I was trying to make the most of Photographing the ‘mundane.’ Everyday things that everybody sees, and showing them in a different light. I’m keen to work more without colour, to learn shadows and lighting.

Hopefully this weekend will bring some more photographic opportunities – I can’t wait for Spring to fully kick in, the weather to improve, and the photos to start inspiring me again!
