January

January has been a slow month for me and photography. I have taken my camera out on several occasions but have thus far been hardly inspired by much of what I have seen. I have a random collection to post today of mismatched photos taken on these occasions. I hope February turns out to be a better month.Fields

These two images were taken on New Years day in Belhus Woods on a wander in the relative sunshine.

The next collection of images were taken in Martinhole Wood after the snow had settled.

This last collection I took today. My mothers orchid is in full bloom and it is a beauty to behold.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Changing Seasons

I was really gutted when this theme was chosen. I had snow last week and couldn’t get a good reflections picture but it would have been perfect for this. However, when I woke this morning to find a glimmering wonderland outside I knew it was for a reason.

Snow Day

So last night I had decided that seeing as I had today off work, I would take part in the wordpress weekly photo challenge and get a photo for ‘reflection’. However, the weather had other ideas! I awoke this morning to see that it was snowing! The little girl in me allowed a little eeekkkk to escape. I checked to see that no one had heard me… then promptly began to get my camera battery on charge eagerly awaiting the snowfall to stop. I put on a ridiculous amount of layers, and walked over to the nature reserve with my little sis and the dog. The following is the result of my first camera snow day.
