Landscape Challenge - Day 5 - Around the South
25/01/2016

Today's Landscape Challenge takes in spaces a lot closer to home.  I didn't have a whole gallery of items from the same around so I've expanded the coverage to include Hampshire, Surrey and Somerset.   Its simply a celebration that all of the English summer has to offer (albeit short...just like the English Summer. So here is my 'offering' to the landscape challenge.  Just off the A272 looking back toward the church steeple of Privet,...

Landscape Challenge - Day 4 - Fightertown UK

As a photographer I'm guessing you know I don't exist in isolation.  Whilst photography is my business I also get the opportunity to indulge in it as a hobby too.  I may lack the enthusiasm to discuss the latest and greatest kit (as most of it is just fluff aimed at extracting cash from the unsuspecting) but I don't lack the desire to take a great image or go looking for amazing images when I get the chance.  Earlier this week a friend of mine...
