Summer was good. We had sunshine and warmth – something that has been missing here in the UK for the past few years. Keen to make the most of it, we broke a couple of our camping rules and camped a few times during the school holidays. We even broke Rule No 1 and went camping on a Bank Holiday! Add to that the company of six grandchildren and some would say we were having a crazy senior moment! In fact, we had a lovely weekend – the campsite wasn’t as full as we had anticipated and it was great to spend quality time with the grandkids. It did, however, take us a week to recover! In fact – he says tentatively – we’re thinking of making the family camping weekend an annual event … but perhaps not over a Bank Holiday!
Now, autumn is upon us and winter looms. I must admit, winter is not my most favourite time of the year, but I must learn to change my mindset. Autumn colours are wonderful and frosty mornings can be beautiful. And snow – should we get any – can be magical. Before it gets all churned up and mushy, that is.
We have been busy organizing my photos and working on giving my website a new look. It is very time-consuming and staring at a computer screen all day long can sometimes send you stir crazy. Anyway, to get you in the mood for autumn, here are a few shots I’ve taken over the years (click on the images to view a larger size).
