Birthday Present Arrives

This birthday, I’m sorry to amit was a landmark birthday, and I’ve spent the last month or so trying to work out what to put my gift money towards.

I’ve wanted an astronomical telescope for a while, and after several discussions with a work colleague I decided to opt for a dobsonian telescope for the […]

Visit to Kingston Lacy

Today, we paid another visit to Kingston Lacy, and the house was open, so we visited the house for the first time ever.

The Golden Circle, Iceland.

Today, we took an organised trip around the well trodden path of The Golden Circle, which included a stop at Geysir, Gulfoss Falls and finally, and most interestingly to me a stop at Þingvellir National Park, which is one of the few places on the planet where you can see the Mid Atlantic Ridge above […]

The Blue Lagoon, Iceland

As this birthday was a landmark one, Manda and I treated ourselves to a trip to Iceland for my birthday with the hope of seeing the Northern Lights. The holiday didn’t start well, with the flight from Gatwick of Keflavik being delayed by 5 hours due to high winds in Iceland. This essentially wiped out […]

Snowdrops at Kingston Lacy

Today we visited Kingston Lacy to see the annual spectacle of the Snowdrops in the gardens of the National Trust property at Kingston Lacy, near Wimborne, Dorset.

The car park was so packed, we thought that they might be filming an episode of Antiques Roadshow, but apparently the cars were all there for the snowdrops.


New Year Walk to Golden Cap

After going to the LeROC Axminster NYE party, Manda had to work on the 2nd Jan, so I took the opportunity to get out and about and decided to walk up Golden Cap.

I have to confess to carrying quite a few extra pounds after Christmas, and so I opted for the Cheats Route. If […]

Visit to Arne

After a few days of enforced Christmas Cabin Fever, I managed to persuade Manda to come outside, and we took an afternoon trip to the RSPB Arne Nature Reserve near Wareham.

I decided to go armed just with the EOS-M, three lenses and the EF to EF-M lens adaptor.

I took the EF-M 22mm, the […]

Fixed 50mm Lens Results

A couple of weeks ago, I first dropped my Canon 50mm f/1.8 II and broke it into two pieces, then followed an online guide to fix it.

Well, I have to confess, I wasn’t sure that it would be as sharp as it was, but I’ve done a few test shots, and it appears to […]

Place House at Titchfield Abbey

A shot of Place House at Titchfield Abbey in glorious winter sunshine today.


Something that appealed to my darling wife whilst we were out shopping.
