With travel and landscape photography off the cards for the moment (I probably would have just about gotten round to editing all my photos from my cancelled Japan trip by now.) I decided to get myself a macro conversion attachment for my camera. £10 for some really cool photo opportunities.
Despite having lived in Ealing for over 2 years now, I am still discovering local areas and attractions.
I woke up early on Sunday for a 'risk assessment' visit to The Living Rainforest for a science school trip I am planning to take some of my pupils on. It was also a chance for me to get some photos of some exotic animals and plants.
Very rarely do I return to a country I have already visited but Norway is different. It is definitely my all time favourite country I have visited (so far) and will continue to visit in the future.
To celebrate mine and Nadine's 30th Birthdays we booked a long haul, activity packed trip to Banff National Park, Alberta. The trip would centre around visiting the world famous ski resorts in the area and be supplemented with a range of other outdoor winter activities.
I don't often return to places I have been before as I would prefer to invest my money and time in seeing new things, trying new foods and getting new photos, however I have a particular love for Norway since visiting Tromsø in 2014.
In a school break I try to get away on holiday, however this half term I spent 3 days on my back repairing my car so wasn't able to go away. I still wanted to be beside the seaside so I took a trip down to Brighton.
Dear Sir or Madame would you read my book, it took me years to write, would you take a look...
You're never too old for a farm visit. A trip to Bocketts Farm in Dorking, Surrey allowed me to capture some photos of lambing season. Taking photos of animals can be tricky as they rarely sit still and often interfere with the 'perfect shot' that I have spotted through the viewfinder. However, I love trying to capture the animals' personalities in the photographs.
With a trip to Switzerland in the Easter holidays I am hoping to capture some really wide landscape shots of the Swiss Alps and valleys. The lens has a 180° angle so it can capture a vast landscape.
