Goodbye January

I was glad to say goodbye to January,such a long dark month and personal stresses and now it’s the latter end of February.

I haven’t been up to a lot, photography wise but I did manage to blow away the cobwebs by having a revitalising stroll with my husband and Roma on Formby Beach. The only downside was that there was no coffee van, but I did capture a couple of decent shots and brought back a beautiful coloured shell which reminds me of sea and the shore.

Glad To Be back

Thanks for visiting .

“Gettin on with it”


In these difficult times it’s still possible to find pleasure in the simplest and smallest of things. Self isolating outside has been easy when taking Roma (our dog) out for her walk, as many people ironically imagine she is a vicious dog, which couldn’t be further from the truth.
These short periods have been great as they have helped me to spend time looking for beautiful gems of nature.

Happy Easter, stay safe and enjoy.

Paws for Thought

Remember it’s a short week and here is a cutie to start it with. Try to find a positive in everyday…this woofer is one of mine who makes me start the day with a smile. Enjoy and have a good week.

I Can See You

I Can Smell Sausages

I Am Clean

Reasons to be cheerful part three

A week off, time to catch up with family and friends, and walks in the sunshine with Roma. It’s so good to have a week off to reflect, re-charge and be inspired…..time for my camera, start a new book and basically be me.
Towards the end of the week my hair was also recharged with a fresh burst of colour, and for once I actually was going out that evening. This was thanks to my lovely Sister and Brother-in law, as we put the money aside they gave us for Christmas towards a romantic meal. So off we popped  to the Indian Tiffin Room for a tasty meal. Tiffin serves South Indian street style dishes which have very moreish and distinct flavours, (The Dosas are  amazing). After feeling totally stuffed we managed to enjoy a few drinks , chat about  nonsense and new ideas ,in Brezo what a fab night with my soul mate.

On the Sunday we were then ventured through unexpected fog down the M62 to Crosby, (With Roma in tow of course), to see Anthony Gormley’s Another Place, and we saw something else which was a total surprise…….wait until my next post to find out more.




My mum loved daffodils so I always capture these thinking of her and smile



I came across a beautiful Silver Birch tree  in the cemetery near us  and was fascinated by it’s colours and textures .

While focusing upon the different shapes and textures I noticed this gem hidden in the crux of the branches….beautiful


Roma muddy and wet as ever


The first Pussy Willow of the year



So much choice but the staff will guide you if you need it.

Cheers here’s to more weeks like this
