Scotland

DSC_0427 Scotland will always be a special place for me. I spent many holidays and Christmases in and around Edinburgh, visiting grandparents and family and I still visit every couple of years. It holds a great amount of nostalgia for me and I still see the city as a unique and beautiful place to visit.

Nordschleife, Nürburg – Germany

DSC_0470 The proximity of Landgraaf to Germany and specifically the town Nürburg makes it convenient for a day trip to the infamous Nurbürgring or Nordschleife racing circuit otherwise known as Grüne Hölle - "Green Hell". Anyone who knows me will know that I have an obsession with cars and a particular interest in German cars (you may notice from my photos that I have a desire for a particular brand of German automobiles) the Nürburgring was a dream destination.

Lambing Season – Bocketts Farm, Dorking

DSC_061422 copy22You'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.

Switzerland

The first stop in our trip to Switzerland was Zurich. Arriving early in the morning we started as we meant to go on, by walking. Walking very long distances! We explored the city on foot and by tram. The weather was glorious and unexpectedly hot. After monitoring weather forecasts closely we had prepared for rain but as with previous short breaks... We got lucky!
