Lorna Doone Valley

With the weather being so sunny of late, we decided it was time for our first picnic of the year and where better to go than one of my all time favourite places on Exmoor, Malmesmead and the Lorna Doone Valley. It’s such a quiet and picturesque walk along the riverside and is home to […]

Spring Has Sprung

Spring has most definitely sprung this weekend 🙂 It’s been a bird frenzy in the garden with all of the birds busy finding their homes and building their nests. The Rooks are in the lead with them establishing their Penthouses at the top of the oaks, closely followed by the Blackbirds who today were determined […]

Photo Mojo

Having had a little extra time over the past few days I have been able to do some reading around and appreciating others work, both in photography and other various art forms.
