Its felt like an age since I last updated my blog, been concentrating too much on other things, and have somewhat neglected my blog, hopefully will put that right and keep it updated a little more.
Lots been going on in recent months on the walking and wildlife front and I will try and summarise it with a few photos. Also lots coming on the horizon, the main project I am workinbg on now is selecting photos to produce as prints to go on sale, as well as getting out with the camera and walking if the rain ever stops!!
One of the most recent highlights was a trip up to the Farne Islands, and to see the amazing Puffins
I have wanted to get some shots of Hares for a long time, and whilst out last week caught sight of one hunkered down in a field on the Wirral
Another shot I have been after for some time, is that enigmatic pose on the side of a tree of a nuthatch, this I got at Pistyll Rhaedr Falls, on the Berwyns in North Wales.
On the walking front, the highlight has to be the trip to Greece to climb Mount Olympus, standing at 2917m or 9570ft, it is one of Europes highest, and was an amazing experience that I will long remember. I went with Sharon and a group of friends, and the two of us can proudly boast that we were the only ones to climb it from sea level to the top. An amazing week in Greece, and a few photos below.
The first is in the Enipeas Canyon on the first day trekking up Olympus, one of the most stunningly beautiful walks I have been on
The team as we are well and truly above the snow line
And successfully at the top
And as we left on summit morning, sunrise over the Aegean from the refuge at 2000m up Olympus.
One of my favourite photos this year has to be the two Mute Swans on Ullswater in the Lake District, they looked so serene on a misty spring morning.
So much more that I havent published, I will get some more up of the missing months in my next post.....
