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 →

December in Photos

TweetTwo months behind…. ~ I’m not the biggest fan of December. It’s dark. It often involves forced interactions with people I’d rather not. It’s usually too busy at work to get anything else done. I didn’t shoot much during the month, only really taking the camera out when I wanted to take photos at an event, or during an ocassion.… Read more →

But still, off to the Lake District we went, camping of sorts, introducing the new generation to some weather. It still stuns me every-time I come to the Lakes just how… Read more →

A Year With A Leica Q.

TweetIn 2013 my father died. To paraphrase a friend, I realised I’d already dug myself a rut, or a grave, one is just longer than the other. All of this lead to different goals and a change of my outlook on life. Spend time doing more things, in better places, with decent people. Everything else is superfluous. Cut away the… Read more →

Tweet A quiet month. Spent most of it trying to raise the tiny human that is becoming self aware. Like Skynet, but with more oozing. A few trips into the mountains for everyone. The earlier she gets out and about the less abnormal it will be for her. No point in waiting until the dead of winter, lets make the… Read more →

Scotland – Second Time & Jura Fell Race.

TweetA while coming as I’ve been slacking with writing. After last years excellent trip, we took the opportunity to have our first real family holiday this year in Scotland. Arran first, Islay, Jura, Mainland, Glenco, Skye, then the Lakes. We covered about 1,700km. It made sense to combine it with a trip the the Jura Fell Race – http://www.gregorymay.ie/?p=3853 Suffice to… Read more →
