“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.

“The most important thing in the world is family and love.”

Not only do I have an amazing Dad, I also have an awesome Grandad – and at the beginning of this year we didn’t think we would have another month with him let alone all the way through to Father’s Day. We’ve had some great moments, and we are still having them which makes everything all the more special…


Yesterday I did some experimental photographs, trying to get back into the swing of the whole ‘photography for enjoyment’ situation. I think it paid off a little, and today my watermark had a refresh so I had to test that too…

Once again my water spraying techniques were disrupted by Maisy who insisted that she put the nozel in her mouth and took all the spray, she’s a weird one!



Happy Father’s Day to all the Dad’s out there, and the Grandad’s too… !
