Spring 2012 - At Last!

19th April 2012
Well Here it is..Please scroll down!....The Website up & running as I'd hoped..! And just in time for the Summer season too. The area is just starting to wake up to an influx of this years tourists, A few places of real interest re-opening after the winter lull.

The Wedding Season has started too,I've include below some photos of a very enjoyable wedding last month when Doris & Pete tied the knot. For once there was time to capture odd moments with the guests during the wonderful service itself, and I thought I'd show you these shots below. We were all captivated too by the beautiful voices of the Forest of Dean Male voice Choir. Some of the photos of them singing are in Portraits Portfolio at this link

Ahhh! Weston Athletic Football Club from Ross on Wye are doing extremely well this season, and they are a pleasure to photograph! The last match was a tad damp with driving rain and it turned icy cold up on yonder playing fields at Broardwell. It was a tad painful too as I managed to get hit on the ear by the ball as it was being thrown back to players by a supporter. It sure warmed my ear up tho ! A selection of photos are below, but Ive taken so many this season its hard to choose! If you would like any photos taken for your sporting fixture - whether it be football or something more exotic. (theres more football shots on the Customers page too!) then please dont hesitate to phone me on 01594 860062 or leave a request on my Contact Page which goes straight to my inbox....I'll get straight back to you to discuss your requirements. I LOVE action photography of all descriptions and have recently added some dance photos taken in local woods. At this Link! and also on the Prices Page.

....And on to another book that I read around Christmas time...'Call Mother A Lonely Field' by Liam Carson is a wonderful book about his Fathers resolve to (re)-commit the Irish Language into his family's life. Liam writes without sentiment, furnishing this memoirs with 1970's Belfast through boyhoods formative eyes.
Nuala ni Dhomhnaill said; "...For him, as for his father, Ithaca is not a place but a language..."

I'll be adding to this blog a bit more often now...As far as the forest phtography goes - next stop are the glorious acres of Bluebells which are flowering as we speak. This year should produce better light as last years bells arrived so late that the beech woodlands were already in full leaf, producing a yucky green cast to those delicate blue hues. The bluebells in Forest of Dean have to be seen to be believed. NO photo really does them justice!...and the scent!
Checking my Latest Photos Page should yeald some results very soon, but theres already photos uploaded in the Spring Portfolio too....(Well, when it decides to stop raining here)!

In the meantime tho', Whilst ploughing through the digital archives I hit on the idea of a 'Country Vile' Portfolio - Full of Rusty artifacts even a rural answer to Hoppers paintings!....Have made a small start! A slight deviation here from the beauty of the forest I'll admit, but glorious HDR decomposition can be found in the Creative Portfolio
