Winter photos at the start of 2021

I have longed for a big freeze over winter for a while now. And finally we have had a month’s worth of intermittent snow, frost, and deep winter. It must have been six years or so since the last good fall of snow settled for a while. Here are a

Some Pictures from this summer in the lakes & scotland

Having had so many months travelling not very far from our house and city limits, it was special as a family to have some short breaks in the Lake District and in Western Scotland during August. I posted some family photos on Facebook, but wanted to reserve some landscapes and

Lockdown project Re-using my photo printer

Winter Walk in the Peak District

With a day to myself last week, I decided to do a hill walk in the Peak District. It was a sunny day and I had googled walks to local waterfalls. The one that took my interest was ‘Three Shires Head’, a 4 1/2 mile mixed terrain walk in between

Mist by the lake

We have had very misty mornings this last couple of weeks in Staffordshire. There hasn’t been much opportunity to go out with a camera until yesterday. We did a family walk in the afternoon around Trentham lake; surprisingly there was a rolling mist which brooded over the lake just whilst
