drain away in the cold)

Jim took this of Reena , he's way better
than me with his people shots

This is a big file but it's four 20D 17mm shots

Omaha Beach and Morris and James Pottery ...again


It was cold in that south-westerly
but we haven't seen blue sky here
in a while

What can I say, there was
no way this was staying at Morris and James Pottery

Storms and Daffodils

This appeared in the garden
after we had been delivered two storms in a week.
One was described as a weather "bomb" .
Nothing like the northern hemisphere hurricanes I'm sure but enough
to take down plenty of trees and pelt the house with
debris for hours on end. The power went off
for thousands of homes, including mine.

Never easy to photograph with this
level of contrast , I sympathise with
wedding photographers
