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.
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.
I love the use of reflection in photography and it also gave me a chance to look back through my photos from the last few years and reflect on how lucky I have been to visit some amazing places.
A follow up to last month's post; 'Oh Deer!' This time shot in Bushy Park at about 4pm. There was a really nice warm light on the park and a moody dark sky...
I felt quite intimidated as I approached a herd of about 20 fully antlered deer, ensuring I stayed behind a tree at a safe distance...
