On 19th April, Good Friday, we took a walk through the Cliveden woodlands to see the bluebells.  It was a lovely sight and the smell was gorgeous.

Whether the weather …

Following all the wet weather over Christmas and the New Year Cookham Moor eventually flooded during the 2nd week of January.  I went to grab some shots on the 14th when the level had dropped a bit. The weather changed from sun to overcast to heavy rain until a combination of both.

Christmas Sparkle


Just updating here with some recent shots! There was no “12 Days” workshop last Christmas so the only Christmas shots I took were these few as I was packing away all the decorations on the 5th with a little help from Eden the Elf!

Summer Fun

After a long awaited spring the summer of 2013 was on the whole sunny and warm.  Autumn seems to have arrived with a vengeance so here are a few reminders of long summer days.

It’s that time of year again!


Yep you’ve guessed it CJ’s fantastic freebie “12 Days of Christmas” is here again.

As usual it kicks off with a festive selfie.  I was going for a halo effect as being such a good girl I have made CJ’s Good List for the 4th year in a row!

Here are a few shots from the first week and a bit. I have missed a couple of the prompts but hope to catch up soon.

I’m not as happy with my efforts this year.  I’m hoping to get some better shots over Christmas instead.

Bye for now.

It’s been a while …

since I last blogged and as I have just downloaded Windows Live Writer I thought it was time for another post!

Another school year has started and the celebrations of the Jubilee and London 2012 seem a distant memory.  Our Jubilee celebrations were very low key – no street parties around here but were watched from beginning to end on the TV!  We never made it up to the Olympic Park for the Games either.  No tickets to be had at all although we did make it up for the Paralympic Marathon on 9th September to see David Weir win his 4th gold medal.   We did go to have a look see at the Park back in May when we were up in London for Eden’s ballet audition at Central.

Couldn’t get any nearer than the viewing gallery at John Lewis in Westfields.

Erin and Jess planking down Whitehall!

My photography mojo has disappeared over the last few months.  Plenty of snaps but not enough shots.  At the moment I should be working on a Still Life Revisited project for the Speen group.  I failed dismally on the last two projects so need to get my act together for this one.  I need some inspiration.

Can’t think of any other photos worth posting so will leave this post with some action shots of the kids!
