We went to Cornwall for Christmas this year, it was lovely, the cottage was really pretty and the country side was great. Walked and walked, the poor dogs were pleased to come home LOL.
Here are a few shots from our visit, hope you like them. Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and wishing you all a very healthy, happy and prosperous New Year for 2009.

First and second shots is Port Isaac where Doc Martin was filmed, the next 2 are at St Ives beach, Jess and then the dog who was having a great time LOL.

Lastly was the cottage we stayed in...

More Seals at Donna Nook

Here are a few more shots from Donna Nook, there were a lot of seal pups this time and they are just so sweet, very cute! The light wasn't so good this time and the beach was water logged all the way which made it harder work (on top of having the flu it wasn't good LOL) .

So here they are...

Donna Nook Seals October 2008

Went to Sutton-on Sea with a friend at the weekend, we went to Donna Nook to see the wild seals that come in land to breed at this time of year. It was freezing, the wind was so cold and it whips up the sand in to a sand storm. But the seals are fantastic, its amazing to get so close to them a really great experience.

Here some of my favourite shots, shot with 100-400mm lens, quiet tricky as the wind is so strong, keeping the lens still is really hard as it gets buffited about, really needed a tripod and sand bag...but next time I'll take them LOL.

Well Autumn seems to have arrived already, I love the chilled air and changing colours of Autumn but not the rain LOL. Looking forward to going to places to photograph the changing colours in the coming weeks. Here are a couple of still life shots of some fruit, the colours are amazing.

The Feeling

Went to Newmarket on Friday night to see The Feeling after the racing, they are really good live..and you can get really close to the stage, so here are some shots from the night.

I almost didn't get any, the bouncer told me I couldn't take any pictures and if I did he'd have me removed if I took and shots at all, I told him he couldn't as photography is permitted on racecourse grounds. Anyway after much heated discussion we got hold of a race course official who told the goon to leave me alone I could take photos for personal use!

Anyway here are a few of the shots, all taken with no flash as its not allowed ....enjoy.

Red Arrows fly over London..

Last week the Red Arrows flew in formation with 4 typhoons up the Thames for the 90th Anniversay of the RAF.

It was really cool, didn't last long but was quiet a sight. Oh and if you saw a photo in the newspapers of them flying behind Big Ben......they didn't Big Ben was behind me ....that was Photoshopped in LOL....

Afterwards a walk round London.....think this one of the sphinx is probably my favourite one.

Life is still hectic, so much still to be sorted out, so many things to be dealt with...... :-( but hey ho.....

Not the 2008 I had hoped.....

Life has a habit of doing the unexpected, 2008 won't be a happy year for me after all....
Sad things happen, I guess you learn to accept them and carry on...but 2008 can't be the same for me now....
