Bluebell Photographs

THE BLUEBELL WOODS OF WEST DORSET

Coney's Castle BluebellsThis weekend I headed down to Dorset to visit the beautiful bluebell woods in dorset. The spectacle has been a little late this year but has been well owrth the wait. Rising early on Saturday I headed down up to the iron age hill fort of Coney’s Castle where I grabbed some shots of this beautiful spectacle. My photographs really do not do justice to the beauty of the forest – if you ever get a chance make sure you head down to the woods one day in late April or early May. Just watch out for the teddy bears picinic!

A VISIT TO CAMBRIDGE

Fenland ReedsI have just returned from a weekend in Cambridge where I attended a thirtieth birthday party which was agreat chance to catch up with some old friends. I also managed to get myself down to the village of Lode where I grew up and out in to Quy fen where I spotted one of the large Carp which I spent many hours as a child trying to catch. Lode really hasn’t changed much in fifteen years.

A DAY OUT AT SYMONDS YAT

The RoysOn Sunday I went to Symonds Yat with my sister and her family. We parked at the top near the lookout before descending in to the valley below. We then walked along the riverbanks of the River Wye before crossing the river using the footbridge and breaking for lunch. The later part of the afternoon involved recrossing the Wye using the ancient ‘pull’ ferry and enjoying a pint at the pub before making the return journey back to Swindon.

THE TAMAR BRIDGE AND A GOOSE CALLED GEORGE

IK Brunel 1859The resident Swans at Saltash are a well known attraction. A couple of years ago a Goose arrived on the scene. He wanted to hang out with all of the Swans. At first the Swans gave George a hard time. They hen-pecked him and ignored him. This didn’t deter George who stuck to his guns and gave as good as he got. Finally George was accepted as one of the Swans – his story is a little bit like ‘the ugly duckling’ but in reverse. George is well loved by the locals and is often surrounded by his entourage.
