Nikon Coolpix L11

I recently saw an advert for a small, pocket Canon camera, my brand of choice for photo equipment, and I thought it might be a useful addition to my armoury. On reflection I vaguely remembered having a small camera quite a few years ago so I started a hunt for it. I have a habit of not knowing quite where I put things, although…

End Of The Road

Not quite as sinister as it may sound, we just decided a few weeks ago that we would finish our caravanning life. We only used our caravan three times last year and the prospects for this year were not looking too good. We decided to take our caravan supplier up on an offer to buy our caravan as they are crying out for used…

And Finally..

Anybody who has been checking this site out daily must be quite giddy by now! The themes, categories and menus have been changing day by day on a daily basis, almost hourly sometimes as I try to settle on the right set up. I think I am finally happy with the arrangement and I hope I will be able to leave it alone now,…

Off The Beaten Track

I took my camera for a bike ride today. To save having to keep walking the same routes and trying to find an interesting photo composition I decided to spread my wings a bit and found an uninteresting photo composition… I pumped up the tyres on my mountain bike, loaded my camera bag and tripod on my back and set off for an off-road…

He later saw evil in his ways and became a staunch abolitionist and took to the church, eventually finding his way to here in Olney, where he became a…

Meet Max

I thought I should introduce you to the ‘Max’ that I refer to in the site tagline above in the heading. He is a Border Terrier and we have had him since he was a puppy just over two years ago. He is a very independent minded young chap. He will do exactly what you require but only if he is ready and has…

River In Flood Again

I normally edit out this lifebelt station when I am taking pictures down by the river because the bright red stands out like a sore thumb among the willow trees. However, today its useful to make a point about the depth of the flooding. The base is usually about a metre above the river level. I took the picture on my iPhone while on…

Level Five !!!

Hi, apologies for absence, my photo of the day petered out somewhat, sorry about that. I had a problem with Lightroom, which led to more problems. It was not Lightroom’s fault, it was mine. As a result of which I decided to rebuild and reorganise all my photos in Lightroom, around 13,000 pictures. I did have a bit of time on my hands !…
