Beaches, Sunsets and amazing places.

These are some “tweaked” shots from our travels to Western USA. Sitting in a cold, grey Manchester, dreaming of the warmth of the Californian sun.

Christmas Reindeer

Routes, Roads, Freeways and Interstates.

Nothing compares to the open road, vast skies and a distant horizon. On our travels, we’ve driven across deserts, over mountains and over time-zones. These are some of the photographs of our journey.

Most of these were taken in 2008 during our East Coast to West Coast road trip.

Mindfulness Photography

As part of some training I’m doing, I’ve been trying to be more aware of what’s around me, taking the time to stop and think about an object, sound, smell or other sense. The “here and now” is important and I need to regain it, apparently.

So, as part of that training, I’ve been taking pictures of things around me, things I pass by everyday.

This set of photos is of objects from just one room in this cluttered house.

Watery things

It’s only when I started tagging photos that I began to develop themes of pictures.

These are some of the photos I’d tagged as “water”.

Sand, Sea and Squirrels.

On the western coast of England, between Liverpool and Blackpool lies Formby Point, a National Trust area that includes a Red Squirrel reserve.

The beach here has fantastic sand dunes, golden sand and views across Liverpool Bay.

Between rain storms, we managed a day out and finally saw some Red Squirrels. It was great kite flying weather too.
