We took a quick stroll around Rowney Woods this afternoon. The bracken is sprouting up very nicely and the sunshine really lit it up.


It was so nice to get out of the house, if only for a couple of hours this afternoon for the sole purpose of photography. I drove across to the far side of Bishops Stortford, towards Little Hadham and took a gentle stroll around a bridleway through Cradle End picking up a few pictures here and there. I drive past here on my way to work and there seems to be a maze of bridleways and footpaths so I think I’ll be returning at some point.

The Camera Club Summer Programme gets better and better. Tonight, in the lovely balmy late Spring weather, the Bishops Stortford Camera Club gathered under a bridge on the Flitch Way in Takeley…and tried to set fire to it 😉

OK – all was perfectly safe and the only thing that was going to get burnt was our intrepid leader and instructor Brian who was spinning the wire wool! We were even visited by a number of bats and a deer…great evening!

Out in our back garden I came across this pair. It was particularly entertaining when she set off at a great rate of knots for some cover with him clinging on for dear life.

I left them to it 😉

Walking Into Spring

This was taken earlier today on a walk through a very pretty hamlet in Essex called Ugley…Yes…Ugley.

By the way, I’m proud to be taking part in Photography auction Fundraiser where you can bid for one of mine (and many other photographers) photographs all for a very good cause – go and check ’em out.

Spring is certainly on its way as these catkins found in Rowney Woods demonstrate.
