Sorry it's been such a long time since my last blog post! Unfortunately it's been a bit of a rough ride for me over the last few weeks, but things are now finally beginning to get back to normal! About six weeks ago I was in hospital with pneumonia, but now I'm out the other side and ready to get back to photography!
I very nearly missed out on a particularly special holiday to Yorkshire, to see the amazing seabird colony at Bempton Cliffs! Fortunately I was just well enough to go. This trip meant a lot me as Bempton is one of the only seabird cliffs to have wheelchair accessible platforms to enable me to get right up close to the birds. I went to seabird colonies when I was little, but I don't remember it very well. This was an opportunity I didn't want to miss and it was every bit as good as I hoped it would be! The other reason for going was the intention of taking some photos of the birds, but unfortunately I wasn't quite up to it. I still had a good time all the same though!
Here's one of my dad's photos of the cliffs!
To return to taking photographs I went to Wisley last week and did a photo-shoot of tree bark. Partly to get back to basics and get my eye in again, but also because it's an idea I've had for some time for a new collection of images. Trees have always fascinated me as each one has a totally unique shape and character. To add to that the bark is like a fingerprint completely individual to each tree. This also gives me a chance to get back to some macro photography, which I particularly enjoy!
That's all for now, but hopefully you will see the new bark collection very soon. Watch this space!
