Taken in one of the bleakest weeks I have ever had, last year in June – but has brightened up my day yet again with a feature!
Also Mum has this as a canvas print – looks so different to a “photo”! When I see it hanging on the wall there, I have so many different feelings go through me – but I couldn’t have got through that time without my walks with Scooby in the mornings – Mother Nature certainly knows how to make us stop, think, enjoy and be alive even in the toughest of times! I should also add that the week turned out to be ok :)

Canon G10
As Is

Poppy Red

We live in the West of France in the Poitou Charentes region, I love where we live and take a lot of inspiration for photography from the countryside and wonderful regions around us.

I have not had any formal training and just feel comfortable behind the lens, enjoying the feeling of liberty and fun that is to be had with a camera.

I also have a FaceBook Page
