A Visit to Saltash

Over Easter we drove back to Saltash to visit family for the Easter weekend. I made sure I used the time to take some new photos of the area. This photo was taken the morning before we left – perhaps one of the easier photos as the camera was in the conservatory and a cup of tea was nearby!

Landscape Photographer of The Year

A few weeks ago, I had an email from Take A View’s Landscape Photographer of the Year competition stating that “although your image did not receive the main award, it did reach the very short final list and judge, Charlie Waite, feels that it deserves commendation”! This was for the Network Rail ‘Lines in the Landscape’ category. I was very pleasantly surprised :-) It will be on show as part of a slideshow that will ……

Steam Train Return Journey

During the stay in Cornwall, I was able to capture the steam train’s return journey too, although lighting conditions were harsh. There must have been around 100 people watching it from the Tamar Bridge car park!

For years I’ve been trying to get a photo of a steam train on the Brunel Bridge. It’s always either been cancelled and the weekend after I’ve been down, but this time I was lucky. Not only was it on time, but it was lovely sunny weather too! I set up ……

Brunel Bridge in Saltash, Cornwall

Rather than go out in the snow, I’m going through my 2009 photos and putting them where they belong in libraries, etc. I’ve just processed this one that I took after the celebration fireworks – the smoke is what’s left over from the immense display.

Easter in Cornwall

The Brecon Craft Fair was enjoyable and slightly better than this time last year, but still not great. My new display went down very well and a lot of people seemed to look at my photos, a lot more than normal. There are some more improvements to come…

 

My new frames arrived just in time for the craft fair and they are absolutely fantastic! I will get a photo of them here and add an option ……
