Scavenger hunt sunday

A day late due to a computer virus affecting my computer on friday. At one point it looked as if I had lost all my photos and documents (thankfully they were just hidden) and no they weren’t all backed up.  The virus is removed and thankfully I haven’t lost any of my photos (they are all safely backed up now) but it seems to have hidden and removed all the shortcuts to my software.

1. Sunset

I wasn’t able to capture a sunset this week so here is one taken in Tuscany last summer (the photos I was most worried about losing).

2. Black and white

3. A day in my life

Thursday 19th January, the day I passed my driving test.

4. Four

5. Colourful



After an unseasonaly mild few days, we had very heavy frost over the weekend. The way the frost edged the plants, sparkling in the light inspired me to brave the cold and capture these images.

Shades of autumn – Brown

After the last few weeks of struggling to find red and purple, I am pleased to say brown was a lot easier to find.

Shades of autumn – Purple

I’ve struggled to find any purple in nature this autumn. I planned one last trip to the park this Sunday to see if I could find anything but I’m not feeling that good at the moment so I’m pulling one from last autumn. I hope this is ok, I’ve been really enjoying shades of autumn and didn’t want to miss out this week.

Lake district final post

This is my final set of photos from our long weekend in the lake district (find part 1 and part 2 here). The weather was absolutely glorious on our final full day so we backed up some sandwiches and headed off for a walk from Coniston to Tarn howes and back. Here are the photos from the walk (you can see my photos of the fantastic cafe we visited for well earned cake on the way back to the camping site and read my review of it here).

Lake district weekend

We had a busy day on our first full day in the Lakes. After a relatively slow start to the day getting ready, cooking and eating breakfast on the deck of the pod we set off walking. We walked from the camp site to the nearest town Ambleside. When we have been to the Lakes in the past we have usually stayed in a B&B in Ambleside and after visiting a view of the larger towns it has to be my favorite. It took a good hour and a half to get there (stopping occasionally to take photos of course).

Reflections in the river

After browsing around some of the shops, we had lunch in a little cafe. Refueled and ready to go further, we headed up through the wood to see the waterfalls above the town.

I’m linking this photo up for Macro Monday.

A little more browsing around the shops followed by a couple of drinks in a pub and then we headed out to dinner at a favorite restaurant of ours. There is a small bar upstairs from the restaurant with live music on Fridays and Saturdays so after dinner we headed up there to enjoy a few more drinks before getting a taxi back to the campsite. The band that night were Beggar Joe who we both really enjoyed (even though only half the band was their due to illness, they were still fantastic).
