The height of summer. Two trips to Devon – Paignton and then South Hams. Also visits to Buckingham and London. Otherwise, mainly photographs around Brockwood Park, including the installation of a new fountain at the Krishnamurti Centre, the old one having cracked in the cold during the 90s.

The Trees of Brockwood – The Grand Oak (365/365)

The last photo of January and the last photo in my photographic year. We are back where we started, in the Brockwood parkland. It’s been an interesting challenge to use my camera every day. It made me look around a lot more, looking at the details as well as the grand sweeps and vistas, as I went about daily life and out on hikes and trips. I hope you’ve enjoyed the views!
