July in Pictures

TweetJuly consisted of two things – a trip to the Isle of Man, and quitting my job. I’d not been to the Isle of Man in over 20 years. When a round of the English fell championships was announced we made plans to go straight away – on another note, being a sovereign country, I have no idea how a… Read more →

May in Pictures

TweetSummer arrived with a thud. Suddenly, summer. Nearly four months solid of it. The first two weeks of solid summer I’ve ever had in Scotland. Good light – either crisp spring or forceful summer – gets the camera out and keeps it out. First month I’ve shot over 300 images in a long time. I don’t do burst images. Hangover… Read more →

April in Pictures

TweetI’m not an April person. It’s a hard month, mentally and environmentally for me. Not yet warm. Not yet light. Not yet summer. I don’t function well.

First month I’ve not had a cold, but some other disease made me spend too much time on the porcelain throne for… Read more →

A Year in Mountain Rescue

Tweet It’s not something I’ve written about much. But those who know me, know that I joined my local mountain rescue team a little over one year ago. In January, we had our final assessment. Words below, photos at the URL: http://www.cvsrt.org.uk/the-team/news/probie-assessment-2018   It’s been a wonderful experience. I’ve done and seen things I’d never expected to do. I’ve helped and been… Read more →

January in Photos

TweetA bit closer to on time with this month. ~ A month of opposites. So few photos. No motivation to shoot. Still had lurgy. Self pity hit a highpoint. Normal for me in January. But. Bikes were ridden. A new bike. Runs were ran. With new people. Full team membership on the mountain rescue team was attained. With joy. Ecstatic… Read more →
