HELLO & WELCOME
 
I am Clare and this is my Photo Site. I got interested in photography when I purchased my first 'real' camera in 2010. I created this website to showcase my photographs for family and friends and maybe even the odd passing visitor. I make updates regularly so check back for the latest additions, and you are very welcome to leave a comment in my Guestbook.

Behind The Lens: My New Photography Workflow

August 20, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
I have made a few changes to my photography workflow after following an online course from Creative Live titled The Ultimate Lightroom CC Workflow. It ensures that my photos are dealt wth systematically and efficiently and are archived both to my own external hard drive and this website. I have invested in a new LaCie Rugged 250GB SSD external hard...

Victoria

August 06, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
In May 2017, I was lucky enough to be able to travel to Victoria, Canada for work. I spent an enjoyable week by the sea with my colleagues from PRA Health Sciences, and was able to see quite a bit of the city as well. My trip started and finished with a fabulous breakfast at the Jam Cafe. It is certainly somewhere I'd like to go back to some day. T...

California

May 23, 2016  •  Leave a Comment
It might be 8 months late, but I have finally posted photos from our trip to California in September 2015. It has been a battle to find enough time recently to process my photos. But sitting down to review my California photos certainly brought back lots of happy memories! The Travel section now contains photos from San Francisco, Big Sur Coast, Lo...

Luscious Lavender

September 03, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
I got together with a bunch of photography friends and had a day trip to the lavender farm at Hitchin, Bedfordshire. I have wanted to shoot a lavender farm for a while now, and I suggested this trip to coincide with the flowering season. We were in luck, as the blooms were beautiful, and highly fragrant. As well as a memory card full of photos, I c...

National Trust Collection: More from Hughenden

July 02, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
We had another trip to Hughenden Manor, in Berkshire, recently, to meet up with friends from Milton Keynes. It was a beautiful sunny day. After a very fresh and tasty lunch in the kitchen garden cafe, we took a stroll around the grounds, with cameras in arms, to enjoy the sunshine and take a few pictures. I think the scarecrows and flowerpot men in...

Smile!

June 15, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
I once watched a documentary which talked about how we humans are automatically programmed to recognise faces and smiles, even in inanimate objects. This is certainly true for me, especially in cars, with their headlamp 'eyes', wing mirror 'ears' and front grill 'mouth'. I started noticing a few around the house as well, and thought that this could...

Behind The Lens: My Photography Workflow

June 15, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
Some things are changing around here. I have gone and got myself a new camera! I've made the jump from compact system camera all the way to full frame in one fell swoop and I am now the proud owner of a Nikon D610. I got the camera body at a discounted price, as it was classed as 'refurbished', but only had 13 actuations, and still even had the pla...

A Good Washing Day

I was out hanging the washing and noticed how beautiful our garden is looking at the moment. We have some baby apples appearing on our two apple trees, and flowers of all colours are attracting the bees. Click the photo to see the full collection.
