March of the Internet Nobody, day thirty one: Nature photography week…

For this, the final post in my month long frenzy of blogging activity, I took a slightly muddy stroll along a stretch of the Yeo river valley and captured what nature had to offer (in the grey springtime drizzle) in amongst the trees and undergrowth.

This area floods regularly in winter and spring, so it’s an altogether sparser landscape than our local woods, but the wood anemones are blooming, along with the ubiquitous wild garlic and a few other wild flowers. There is also an abundance of dramatically shaped trees here, bordering a more fast-flowing river which rushes over a concrete weir after snaking through the woods.

Thank you for joining me on my week of nature rambles and for putting up with me every day this month, normal(ish) service should resume tomorrow.

In the land of Pooh…

In the land of Pooh…

The best of our recent trip back to the wide open spaces of Sussex…

Photo Sans Frontiers

Last week we went to see friends and family in Crowborough, East Sussex, where the dramatic vistas of Ashdown Forest provided A A Milne with the settings for hisWinnie the Poohstories.

We were lucky with the weather and took the opportunity to wander amongst the pines, heather, bracken and gorse bushes of this, the real Hundred Acre Wood, as well as taking Audrey on a tour of some the other rural playgrounds of my youth.

Becky, who I hadn’t seen for years, joined us on the more-or-less-compulsory trek to Pooh Bridge for a game of Pooh Sticks; whilst Biff, another old friend, provided entrainment for Audrey in the shape of Luigi, the loveable Staffordshire bull terrier and he also kindly organised a trip to a riding stables, where we met some of their horses (before stopping for refreshments at one or two local hostelries).

Come on, let me…

A walk in Whiddon woods…

Photo Sans Frontiers

Audrey and I took a walk along the river, through the woods not far from where we live, to see what photo opportunities nature had to offer and to hone Audrey’s camera skills. I shall post the best of her Instagram pictures soon, but for now, here’s my contribution.

Wild garlic carpeted the floor of the woodland, the paths were dappled with sunshine, the river sparked attractively and somebody had even used art to give a tree some personality…

Photo Sans Frontiers Showcase: Chris Adams…

This week I finally began the task of sorting through the hundreds of pictures on the recently inaugurated Photo Sans Frontiers Facebook page, intending to compile a blog with which to showcase the photography posted by the members of our slowly growing little group.
But there are just too many great pictures.

So I’ve decided to make it a series of posts, each one of which will feature one or more photographers’ work
(almost like a proper photography blog, instead of just foisting my own twisted creations or travelogues on you)

So it seemed only fitting that I should devote the first chapter of this new venture to by far the most prolific contributor to the group, Chris Adams, in particular his wonderful nature photography, much of it taken around Ceredigion in Wales.
As I add more posts to the series, I shall be trying to get a little background from some of the people behind the camera, but for now just enjoy the rugged coastlines, dappled forests and winter landscapes that Chris has captured so beautifully.

That’s just a taster, there’ll be more from Photo Sans Frontiers ( and Chris, I’m sure) very soon.

Stay tuned.
