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.

Visit to Stourhead

We’ve recently joined the National Trust, and as it was a really nice day today, we decided that we’d take a trip to Stourhead in Wiltshire for the day. It turned out only to be about an hours drive from Poole, and I have to say that I’ll definitely be making another couple of trips […]

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 […]

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 Photo Project

I’ve been fascinated by a series of cottages that I pass every day on the way to work since I moved to Bearwood a couple of years ago. The cottages I pass are at at Longham, near Ferndown, and comprise two sets of semi-detached cottages, one of which was the old Longham Post Office, and […]

Canon EOS-M – One Month On

I’ve now owned my Canon EOS-M for about one month and thought that it was time I included some of the best shots I’ve taken and give a bit more of an opinion about this little camera.

Since getting the EOS-M, I’ve picked up the following pieces of equipment:

Canon EF-M 22mm f/2 STM Lens […]

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 […]

Canon EOS-M & EF-M 22mm STM Pancake Lens – First Shots

I’ve had the EOS-M for about a week now, and haven’t really had chance to play with it much.

I have to confess that with the 18-55mm kit lens attached the setup is still a bit bulky for my liking so I managed to get a EF-M 22mm f/2 pancake lens, which really brings this […]

Canon EOS-M – First Impressions

A few days ago, I made a bit of an impulse purchase of a Canon EOS-M kit from Argos. I’ve been thinking about getting a CSC camera for a while, as although I’ve been carrying a Lumix TZ30 as a backup camera, I have to confess that I’m still reluctant to leave to SLR at […]
