Having a bit of a sort through some of the (disappointingly few) photo’s I’ve taken this year and found this one of Big Bill, who last made an appearence in the 52 week theme for HDR. ┬áThe snow had gone, but returned with a vengance again this week.

Alpine Morning

Taken in France earlier this week. Unfortunately this shot doesn’t do it full justice. Shame I wasn’t brave enough to take the camera up with me the previous day as there were perfect blue skies. Weather wise it was around -30 Centigrade up there and visibility was worsening as the cloud dropped and snow flurries closed in

Last of the snow pictures

Well it looks like Winter has now settled back to it’s usual dull grey drizzle for the time being, making special shots that much harder to come across. I’ve not got anything for the January entry in the 2010 hotographer of the Year Competition yet, but have a few ideas in mind (it’s just finding the time to stage them. Hopefully the miserable weather will serve to inspire more creative indoor shots instead, especially as I have found a custom function for focussing without using the shutter button. It’ll be interesting to see whether I can get to grips with it.
In the meantime, I’ll share the last of the snow pictures with you – I call it cupped, should have a poem to go with it at some point, just need to get my thinking cap on.

Finally feeling Christmassy

Been really busy in the last couple of weeks with one thing and another and the photography has taken a bit of a back seat. I’m pleased to say that with the rather inclement weather, both the mojo and the enthusiasm are back with a bang. Been out and about with the sledges and the kids over the last two days and got a bagful of shots to go with the frostbite.
