Loving water

Just love water, there is something about capturing a moment & thinking about the journey it will travel.

I stayed at this spot in  a village in Dartmoor (name completely escapes me) for ages playing with various settings.  Not sure I actually achieved what I had set out to do that day, but it was certainly a good relaxing way to spend some time thinking about travel.

The kids are growing up & starting their own lives now, time for us to plan ahead & think about places we would like to visit now we have the flexibility.

A big tick on the bucket list

I’ve wanted to see the northern lights for a long time & finally achieved the dream late last year.  Blessed with some great weather & clear skies we were treated to what the locals suggested was the best show they had seen for a long time.

My shots didn’t come out the best you will ever see but I have the memories.  My pictures serve as a reminder. 🙂

I’m also getting to grips with Lightroom!!  A recent purchase as Aperture is being updated, I decided it was time for a move.  Big learning curve.  More to follow on this.

Norway 2015 – Flam Waterfall

Flam waterfall

You will have gathered that Norway was last years trip & it was a truly stunning country.  The views at every turn were just amazing.

This particular day we decided to take the famous Flam Railway all the way to the top passing the Kjosfossen Waterfall en route.  The scene was amazing but even better was the fact that the train stops on the way back down for you to actually get out & see it close up.

With the snow melting it made the waterfall even more dramatic & as you can see from this shot you had zero chance of staying dry.  The family took an early shower!!
