Cut off by the tide

St Michael’s Mount Hard to believe but this time last week we’d just spent the day on the beach in Cornwall watching the sun go down over St Michael’s Mount – in glorious weather and 20°C of November sunshine! The nice lady that served us our Cornish Cream Tea told us that the winter months […]

Oak Tree Summer Showers Northchapel

Northchapel Oak

Lonely old Oak, Northchapel West Sussex Busy doing my Saturday evening ‘Dad’s Taxi’ trip yesterday when I spotted this solitary oak. We’d had an afternoon of sun and showers and this photo captures them both. Sun on the field, grey skies on the horizon. Shortly after I pulled up another photographer walked around the corner. We […]

Poppy field Sussex

A field of Poppies

Lazy Summer Days I was driving along the road from Petworth to Midhurst and was just blown away by the colours in the field from the poppy flowers. Absolutely stunning, and just for a few days too. Check this photo over on Field of Poppies. Thanks for looking.

Thursley Common Boardwalk

Frosty morning on the boardwalk at Thursley Common Bog

It was very cold this morning! Crikey it was cold this morning! The good thing about the cold weather is that the water in the wooden boardwalk had turned into frost making the boards look white. Who’d have thought this was a boggy heath in Surrey – could have been Scotland! Maybe that’s why they […]

These huge blocks of concrete were dropped into the sea during World War II to deter German U-Boat attacks against ships at Portsmouth Harbour. Have to say it was a […]

Jetty Petersfield Lake Hampshire

The boating lake at Petersfield

Petersfield Lake at dawn I stopped off at Petersfield Lake on the way to work this week to grab a photo I’ve been planning to take for a while. The toughest part of getting this image was finding a 30 second slot that didn’t have any ducks or geese swimming about in the foreground or […]
