This beautiful traditional hay meadow is at National Trust Wallington.
I’ve been busy with commissions and (whispers) my other job lately, but I have been able to complete a couple of new designs, the first of which is this pendant. It features two polished silver magpies, set against a contrasting textured and oxidised background. It measures 0.8cm wide by 2.5cm long. I’ve made a few … More Latest Designs: Two For Joy
We spent a wonderful week in Fife during May, and my landscape for the month had to be one of the photographs that I took there. This is the beach at Elie at low tide, looking over towards Earlsferry.
As I mentioned in my last post, we recently returned from a holiday in Fife, Scotland. We had a great week, and one of the highlights for me was the opportunity to do a bit (well, quite a lot, if I’m honest) of beachcombing. I found one particular beach that was awash with sea glass … More Found Treasures
The theme for this week’s photo challenge is ‘liquid’, which is timely for me, as we’ve just got back from a holiday in St Monans, on the East Neuk of Fife, Sctoland.

Instead, I’ve chosen this beautiful, dramatic bank of cloud, which is reflecting the colour of the setting sun. It also features one … More April Landscape: The End of the Day
We’ve been living in Northumberland for over a year now, and I’m still regularly thrilled by the number and variety of wild birds and animals that we see. We’re within easy reach of a range of habitats, from stunning coastline to river valleys, farmland to wild moors, coniferous forests to copses of native trees. We … More Latest Designs: Wild Creatures
I haven’t messed with this – it really was that steep.
Finally, some sunshine. It seems to have been grey and wet so often over the past fews weeks. Winter has been slow to release its grip this year, but finally it looks as though we’ve seen the back of it. To celebrate, we headed off for a walk around the village of Alwinton, a little … More Around Alwinton
These aren’t the sort of pictures that I was expecting to be posting for my March landscape, but it really has been a month dominated by snow. We had three days of heavy snowfall and high winds, which caused massive drifts amd blocked the road for nearly a week. Just as that lot finally melted, … More March Landscape: Snowy Scene
