Cee’s fun foto challenge: the colour green-autumnal green medley

Grapproaching thunderstorm

This photo challenge gave me the opportunity to focus on a photographic autumnal medley of shots taken on my recent walks as summer faded and the moist musty mornings came in abundance, with jewelled spider webs and bright fruits dangling with illuminated raindrops.

I hope you enjoy my medley. Spot a little friend working hard on a ‘summery’ day.


colour green medley


Serendipitous yellow

serendipitous yellow trfoils

For miles

The meadows are frayed and


Like antique millinery and worn

Linen upholstered chairs.

Tearing through mournful layers


Yellow, playful


Trefoils romp

In the pasture,



As an Oxeye daisy

Lazily looks on.

Cees fun foto challenge:buildings- fairytale cottage

2014-06-29 14.39.43-1_1
I couldn’t resist entering my little fairytale cottage into Cees challenge. I can imagine a higgledy piggledy wibbly wobbly cottage, full of creaks and spooky corners and a welcoming waft of warm gingerbread.

Cees fun foto challenge:contrasting colours-hedgerow berries

I almost fell into the hedge when taking this shot, but I couldn’t resist the temptation. Beautiful glossy red berries, probably deadly to birds because they are always left dangling, withering away eventually, quite sad really. However they make a photographer’s day! Enjoy!

Water festival

I took these photos a few week’s ago in London’s Little Venice where a beautiful, colourful water carnival was taking place. It was a warm day and the atmosphere was cheery. I thought the photos fitted with Cee’s fun foto challenge ‘Water’ nicely. Usually I would’ve chosen a tranquil riverside location for my photographs but somehow these evoke the beginning of summer and time for fun and leisure. Enjoy!


Nature Animals: Forlorn furry friend


Nature Animals: Forlorn furry friend

I took this photo of the little calf a few week’s ago when we visited a farm tea shop just outside Berkhampstead in Hertfordshire. It was a wonderfully warm Sunday afternoon but the calf was looking forlorn in the dark stable all alone. Isn’t he beautiful!
