I regularly see a lot of rabbits on my morning walks around Dunmow. Today, I had my infra-red camera with me so wondered what a rabbit would look like…wonder no more – I like how the eye has come out particularly.


Was working in Great Yarmouth so stopped off on the way home at Caister-on-Sea to photograph the sand-dunes with my infra-red camera.

I’m the Chairman of Bishop’s Stortford Camera Club for the next two years. The season runs from September to April, but we always run a series of events throughout the year on most Tuesdays and occasional Saturdays. This year’s first Saturday trip was to the Henry Moore Studios and Gardens in dreadful weather for photography…blazing sunshine!

I’ve taken this shot a few times and never really been happy with the result…here’s an infra-red version…still not happy!


Grangemouth is an interesting place and I would like to revisit properly with my camera. When you drive up to Grangemouth from Edinburgh you drive through a huge petro-chemical area with many smoking chimneys and flare off chimneys…very apocalyptic.

We drove out to Broxbourne Woods today for a walk. We hadn’t been for a few years so it was nice to see again. The Infra-Red camera got another outing…not as successful as previously, mainly because there wasn’t much new green life yet, but I still enjoyed this selection of shots…

We visited Rainham Hall today which is a different type of national Trust property in that, because it has had over 50 different occupants with no one family using for any length of time, it doesn’t have a consistent history, so it has been used as a family home, a photographers studio and a Day Nursery, amongst other things.

The current display which opened yesterday is about its time as a Day Nursery during and after the second world war. It was very interesting and nice to come across that sort of institution where all the children appear to have been well looked after and were very happy whilst there.

If you want to see a rather more standard shot of the Hall…

Today’s trip out was our regular visit to Aldeburgh for fish and chips, and then a visit to Snape for a look at the River Alde there.

I have taken The Scallop before but went bananas on the processing today…too much? I like it so it stays 😉

More photos after the break…

We had cabbage with our tea tonight (Shepherd’s Pie if you’re interested). The left over leaves immediately caught my eye for a quick macro black and white abstract sort of shot..nand I made 3 of the shots into a triptych…
