February 2019

Already mid- February; late as usual, but i have been somewhat distracted, as my wonderful little sister died just before Christmas and the funeral didnt take place till well into January. I thought that this might be the most appropriate image that iIcould offer. It was taken, as many of my images are, in Hilliers Arboretum in Ampfield, Hants. It was taken at the beginning of Autumn. I am not sure whether it does the scene enough justice but the reflection and the colours were truly maganificent. I hope that you like it amd it conveys some of the peace that i found in it.

Good Bye 2018

This shot is taken in Bell Street Romsey on the evening of the Lantern Parade. Once again organisations and schools had worked hard to create magnificent lanterns. This one took my eye. It was passing the Christmas displays in the window of Bradbeers. I chose to keep the lantern bearers in sihouette and the rest of the image dark except for the lantern and shop windows.

Approaching Christmas

This image is one which I took on the dining room table. I had been trying to find an image i was happy with for Christmas but failing miserably. So I created one. This is the image used for our Christmas Card this year so if you dont receive a card from us the image is here.

Autumn in Romsey

On my way back from a meeting in the town I chose to walk via Abbey Water. This is of the many tribulets of the River Test as it skirts the town. The view into the water was beautiful and the Autumnal colours almost qualified as spectacular. Who needs to seek out a national arboretum when I can find scenes such as these just 3 minutes walk from my home. I hope that I have done the colours justice.

Romsey Show

Recently managed a couple of hours at the Romsey Show. Starting early meant that the animals were definately centre stage but the “Ladies Cart” provided some human interest and appeared to me very suggestive of the calm and peace of a hot English Summer morning.
