Happy New Year Everyone!
Busy busy busy!!! before Christmas at various local markets and meeting some lovely people around and about. And now the true winter (As I call it) is here...Expecting our first crop of snow tomorrow, its a bit late and I suspect we'll not see much of it again this year again - tho' Im no weather forcaster and might be wrong! Theres been very few frosts too, but below are a few examples from recent trips out down by the riverside in Lydbrook where I live.

Down by the Misty River Wye at Lydbrook

Ahh! Here comes the snow now!

...Just starting to read a new novel with my youngest daughter - I will post more about this book next time, but The magical Forest of Dean is the inspiration for 'When The Madach Came' - CR Burman's 'The Danae of The Forest' series.

Recently too Ive been taking several 1:1 tutorials and had the pleasure to meet some new brilliant & enthusiastic new 'Students'. We've been doing practically everything photography! - including light painting and wide angle shooting using the beautiful Forest locations as our backdrop - Can't wait to catch the new spring flowers as 'in the field' macro photography is a real challenge. Please join me if you have a camera, it doesnt matter what type it is. Details are on my Prints, Portraits & Tutorials Page and Im also advertising in that great local, free and very helpful 'The Forest Bee' magazine which you may have seen in your local shops. Its packed with allsorts of wonderful courses being held in the Forest and thoroughly recomended you grab a copy as they are rapidly disappearing from the shelves. Im delighted that a few of my photos will also be appearing on the Forest Bee Website shortly.
