Cooling down on the East river

July 17, 2022

0

Here’s a few abstracts and mood shots from this mornings bimble along the East Lyn. Even by summer standards, there’s not a lot of water in the old girl but the deep pools are still there and plenty of locals were cooling off in them. It’s prime fishing season too on this ‘catch & release’ […]

Bimble around Toms Hill

July 4, 2022

0

No one knows who Tom was, not even Sarah & Jack. The word could even have morphed from thumb to tom, as that is what this, big, flat top hill looks like. However, during my research I came across this astounding photo of the farmhouse that once stood atop the hill, and the amazing story […]

It depends upon your age, but whatever you think bluebell time is always a most spectacular time of year. Always difficult to capture the atmosphere in photographs but here we go with this years attempt…                   Love these silver birch at Bugford wood, looking good in the […]

It’s been a busy spring and I haven’t posted anything since before Easter, although I have been shooting regularly. Well I’ve finally got on top of things and you can expect a photo dump over the next few days or so, to start off here’s some early spring fence posts from on top of the […]

At last, a proper frosty day.

It’s been mild here in north Devon over christmas and it seems like it’s been raining for eva but, at last mid January – winter briefly arrived, with a few gloriously sunny and bitterly cold days. I love the frosty days and not just because they are becoming increasingly rare but mainly because, as a […]

Big trees down

Nothing lasts forever but these Sessile oaks in the East Lyn valley below Watersmeet have been there for ‘nearly forever’, or at least a very long time. That was until storm Arwen wreaked havoc on one end of November Friday night party that got out of hand – and blew the friggin doors off!. There […]

Beautiful North Devon Calendar 2022

It’s that time of year again. Over the last month I have trawled through all the photos that I’ve taken in the last year and chosen thirteen for the new Calendar. It’s always difficult to envisage what the final product will look like until you actually hold one in your hand. So it was a […]

beech tree time

November 16, 2021

0

The mild autumn (so far) and lack of strong winds here in north Devon has meant that the beech trees have held onto their leaves a little longer than they normally do. This has produced a magnificent display of autumn colour, especially along the east and west Lyn valleys with rusty oaks and wilting bracken […]

All six seasons in one day on top

October 29, 2021

We’ve all got a bit too comfortable with our weather prediction apps. “it’s not what they said” has replaced “it’s that fine rain that soaks you through” in our everyday greetings. Well at least where I live anyway. So it was at a promise of big skies that prompted a early autumnal visit to the […]

Woolacombe Village Hall

has got a new roof and to celebrate there has been a series of events recently to get the local community back in the hall. (My memories date back to when the hall was called ‘Hall 70’ (guess when it was built?) and as a visitor from Bristol on a family holiday; we saw Blithe […]
