Gallery : The Great Outdoors

The great outdoors is a place that I feel very much at home, for there is beauty upon my doorstep , a stone throws upon where I live. I can be in the middle of a field with corn bending and waving in the wind within 2 minutes , though the time I stay in the countryside is considerably longer.

The great outdoors never judges you .

You can wander down it's lanes and streets of your own free will , I feel as if I am a mere guest in the fabric of its time. I find that being outdoor frees my mind and soul and when I came upon the river I saw the swans gliding down with their young cygnets. I get asked why go back and photography it again and I say

"Why not, the light is different the time , sky, sunlight, clouds the season the mood everything is different "

I always spot a lane or path I have yet to travel or a footpath , indeed the other week I was hot footing back over the fence literally pole-vaulting as a herd of angry cows trotted towards me.

I enjoy photography in the outdoors I like to think of my picture taking as object watching much akin to people watching. I take pictures of the magnificent houses and cottages and think I would very much to live there an lollop out on the lane to find my little row boat tied up to row merrily down the river.

In the great outdoors always look forward and then again look back you will see and hear a world that you never knew about , like a flight of dragon flights whizzing past my ear.

If you are weary would you like to rest a while and take tea upon the lawn in the great outdoors.
