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.
This batch is mainly focussed on our summer holidays in the Swedish archipelago south of Stockholm
Here is the next batch of photos taken each day. A trip to the Lake District, a rare orchid, summer in full glory. (Random order.)
Spring turns to summer in this batch, nature bountiful, a first aid class, solar cooking, a hike on the South Downs.
Here is the next batch of photos I’ve taken each day. Spring deepens, blossoms and bluebells continue, fresh leaves arrive. This set includes trips to the Isle of Purbeck and Puy L’Eveque in Lot, France.
Gundleton Rail Bridge, Watercress Line
God’s Acre Cemetery and Corfe Castle
Kimmeridge Bay and the Jurassic Coast, Dorset
Here is the next batch of photos taken each day. Spring is in full bloom, with the focus here on bluebells and blossoms. I consider myself very fortunate to be surrounded by such beauty in my daily life.
Last week I spontaneously decided to start another daily photo project. I’ve done a year of photos before, maybe six years ago, with one aborted attempt before that. So here we go again, with the first ten below. All taken with an iPhone 5S or Lumix TZ-40. (Photos are posted daily on my facebook page)
This is my favourite image from my time living in Cornwall, taken on a September evening in 2003. Surfing at dusk is a special thing, a tangible peace descends and one can feel an increased connection to the elements, to the others in the water. Surfing isn’t all about the action. The pauses, waiting, floating are valuable times.
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!
