Cornwall part 1 – hobbit hut, Eden and pretty ports

It's taken me the best part of a week to go through nearly 2000 photos from our long weekend in Cornwall. We crammed so much into 5 days and it feels like a bit of a dream... Our first "leg" of the trip involved a stay in (basically) a shed in the woods. This was … Continue reading Cornwall part 1 – hobbit hut, Eden and pretty ports

Plant portraits at Upton Country Park

I've had the nicest day today at Upton Country Park learning all about plant photography from the fantastic Louise Jolley. A photography workshop is something I've been meaning to do for a while and I'm so glad I finally worked up the courage to sign up for the plant portrait workshop near me. Learned so much … Continue reading Plant portraits at Upton Country Park

"I dunno, where do you want to go?" for a good half an hour, before deciding on Compton Acres. I'd seen the … Continue reading Saturday afternoon at Compton Acres

Colourful Capri

Checking the weather forecast on our first day in the Amalfi Coast, it didn't seem like we'd get that many full sunny days for our week. Bearing this in mind, we shuffled our vague plans for a day trip to Capri forwards to the Sunday, to make the most of the sun. We caught the … Continue reading Colourful Capri

Pretty Positano

I came away from Italy with nearly 2000 photos, even after deleting all the blurry/unflattering shots, so it's taken a couple of weeks to get the courage up to have a proper sort through. We actually only spent a few hours in Positano, from around 3pm to 9pm, so it's a good place to start … Continue reading Pretty Positano
