One of my neighbours 8 year old son is into motocross and was having a practice day today and his father asked me to take some photo's at the event. This was my very first attempt at motocross photography and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Need to practice more but 'nailed' a few good shots and hopefully I can attend more meetings in the future adding to this portfolio
To all lovers of photography. Hope you have a 'M'erry Christmas and best wishes for the New Year. Stay safe, stay healthy and keep taking pictures.
Thanks to my golfing friend Bill for helping me find this Festive Forest Surprise.
How lovely that people can take the time to decorate trees in the forest to share a little bit of love and kindness to the locals who live here and to fortunate visitors who may find it by accident. It’s great to be living among some wonderful folks.
On reviewing my photographs over the last year I was surprised at how many nice images I had of landscapes and seascapes. I decided to create a coffee table photo book for them as well as creating a slide show which is now on the home page of my website here.
In a very busy week of photography which included a trip to Wales with the Car Club and a Photo Challenge with friend Andy, I was chuffed to have not one but two submissions accepted into the Leica Fotografie International Gallery.
For our latest photo' challenge, friend Andy nominated 'copper' as the theme, as always to be interpreted as we wish. Here are my creations, with captions.
Last weekend I had the pleasure of joining the Porsche Enthusiasts Group for a three-day trip to Llandrdrod Wells in West Wales. I met up with a small group at Chepstow peace course and we then drove past the Brecons to the very nice Metropole Hotel. There were around 21 cars in total and a very sociable occasion it was over the weekend. Saturdays drive stipulated the compulsory wearing of Christmas Jumpers and I chose to go to Tywyn on the coast. Although very cold and breezy, the sunshine and the weather conditions along with the beautiful scenery provided for some lovely photo' opportunities; here are a few.
I was very privileged to be invited to the wedding of my good friends daughter and enjoyed a wonderful day with a lovely couple, lovely family and friends. A selection of my candid photos can be found on my website here.
Very pleased to once gain be able to support Active Gloucestershire by providing photographs of their cycling event for people living with dementia. They provide specially designed bikes for both individual and assisted riding which allow people to relive the fun of cycling in a controlled environment. Well done to the team and supporters and to Lydney Community Centre where the activity took place.. More information can be found on the Active Gloucestershire website.
My very first visit to Brands Hatch following the acquisition of my very first Porsche was well worth the tedious and tiring journey enduring the vagaries of the M4 roadworks and the cursed M25. The circuit had some great view points being easy to walk around. The purchase of 'Superview' tickets in the Brabham-Stewart grandstand also proved to be worthwhile.
