Autumn in the new forest is always a treat, there’s fewer people around for starters, and the leaves and autumnal colours are much easier on the eye than the great green swathes of summer. Always plenty to do or see, and the pubs/restaurants serve some of the best food in the UK.
OK, so it’s not the best photo I’ve ever taken technically, it was after all grabbed during a brisk walk along the seafront at Southend on Sea, and a damp freezing fog had just started rolling in from the water on the only camera I had available at the time, the trusty iphone 6. Now we all know that in low light, it’s not the best you’re going to see, but it was in reality pretty bright out. Nevertheless, the fog has reduced the contrast far better than I could have done in post production, giving the image a somewhat surreal, almost watercolour like effect. I’d promised myself that only my best images would get uploaded here (unlike my Flickr account which has a lot of painful reminders of amateur errors) but there’s just something about this one that I keep coming back to. Despite it’s appearance, I can assure you this one is straight out of the phone, no editing whatsoever.
Just rediscovered my extension tubes
Bank Holiday in the UK, and unusually, the sun was out. Whitstable was absolutely packed with visitors enjoying the vast selection of seafood, oysters, and refreshing ales.

Half term has been and gone, just a fading memory of lay ins, not having to think about meetings, or pre-meeting meetings and days out. Weather held nicely so we went to tropical wings, out local Zoo.
So, the fish croaked. Yup, both of them. They were both fine yesterday, and gone this morning. Same evening that one of the ornaments flew off of the mantle piece and a TV in the kids room turned itself on a couple of times in the night.
