Having moved into a new flat and Nadine using some annual leave to do so, we spent a couple of days in South Wales - Nadine, being a Dutchy hasn't visited Wales before so we made the drive west for a flying visit, stopping by in Cardiff on the way.
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.
Give me a holiday in the mountains over a beach holiday. I love the ever-changing landscape in mountainous regions and the landscape of the Dolomites mountain range in South Tirol, Northern Italy was no exception.
For Easter weekend my mum rented a sweet cottage in Canterbury for the family to use to the weekend. Built in the 1600s, The Old Alms House set in the beautiful Kent countryside was a fantastic base for our family.
This would be my third visit to Nice. I love the area, owing mostly to the variety in activities and scenery of the area. It also has fantastic and affordable transport links that can take you east and west along the southern coast of France and over the Italian border in less than an hour.
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.
Of all the countries I've visited, the Scandinavian nations are by far and away my favourite. I'm a fan of colder climates and having already visited Sweden, Norway, Iceland and Denmark; the somewhat obscure allure of the Faroe Islands seemed to be the sensible choice for my next destination.
So... It turns out I haven't blogged or posted any photo's for over 4 months. With that in mind I have revisited some old photos and re-edited them in Lightroom.
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!
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.
