Postcards from Rome

This post has been sitting in my drafts for nearly 4 months... I'm not too sure why it's taken so long to get my act together and post some of the many pictures I took in Rome back in April.

Learned so much … Continue reading Plant portraits at Upton Country Park

First attempt at star photography

After months of scrolling through beautiful photos of the Milky Way in Dorset on Instagram, I thought it was time to get out there myself and give it a go. Last night's conditions looked perfect - it was going to be clear with only a small amount of "moon" - and Lulworth Cove seemed like … Continue reading First attempt at star photography
