Frozen water at Charlton Marshall

Blog PhotographyPublished January 21, 2013 at 11:44 1 Comment

Took the chance to get the camera out and down the road this morning, while we still had the snow as there was a spell of breaking cloud first thing. I love sunlight when it comes to winter photography, it makes all the difference. I shall be using this image in my next set of printed cards :-)



A Misty March Morning

BlogPublished March 27, 2012 at 21:05 No Comments

I went out and about with the camera this morning for an hour, and stopped at a place I have passed but never paused at before, not far from Upton, in Poole. It was wonderfully misty today (I adore mist) and the roads were quiet, almost erie. I saw some lovely distance shots of trees vanishing well into the mist, so here is one, coming to a watercolour painting near you soon 😉




It is the pool of water I see frequently, and it was just revealing it’s secrets through the mist when I got there. A few minutes more and the mist had all but lifted.




On walking back to the car I passed a lovely place full of mini daffodils so dainty and bright, all covered with moisture clinging to them.




More often than not, when there is lingering mist about, it is not a morning I have a car to appreciate it! so it was bliss to do this today :-)

Teacup with Blossoms

When the sun is shining and in the afternoon on a nice spring day, I get the opportunity to take some shots that really appeal to me. I love pinks and blues and aquas all together, so these shots make me smile.

Pink Tulips

I was given some stunning pink tulips on monday night, what better thing to do than to take some outdoor shots of them. I want to build up my collection of greetings cards, so that I can have a nice selection for craft shows coming up, as well as for Dorset Art Weeks next year.

We went here this weekend with a good friend, as the weather was lovely before lunch….. and then the clouds came rolling in.

Cherry Blossom has bloomed

At long last, the cherry blossom has bloomed! I have been waiting for this for what feels like forever, as I missed the opertunity to capture them last year. This is one of my favorite flowers because of it’s delicate and fragile petals.

Ice patterns

BlogPublished March 5, 2011 at 23:52 No Comments

I experienced the most wonderful ice patterns on my car first thing this morning, it was like the fairies had been out with their fairy dust and left a magic spell behind. The beauty was wonderful, so when the sun came out and reflected it’s deep peach glow through the windows, they just came to light in this wonderful twinkling display of beauty.

Sunset over Piddle Hinton

I stayed at my sisters this evening and saw this lovely mellow colour seep into the lounge, and knew the sky outside would be beautiful. She has such beautiful, rolling fields literally on her door step, so hobbled outside to go and capture it. I do love Dorset!

Portland Lighthouse

BlogPublished March 1, 2011 at 21:51 4 Comments

I drove to portland Lighthouse, at Portland Bill, in Dorset. I was there years ago with a small point and shoot camera, so it was lovely to go back this time with something more substantial. The only fly in the ointment was the sprained ankle I gained while navigating over the rocks. I didn’t stay as long as I would have liked this time as I wanted to get ice on my foot, but I still came away with some wonderful memories of the place, knowing I will have to go back again soon (like I need an excuse to go back – the place is wonderful!)

A couple of shots of the lighthouse. I would have walked to the other side of the lighthouse, but that is one I will have to save for next time.

The cloud came over not long after I arrived, but it was letting through the most wonderful rays of sunlight, hitting the sea.
