The Changing Seasons 02 – January

Last month I joined the Changing Seasons photography challenge.  My warm up post featured images that I had taken in December but before I knew of the challenge, so were not taken specifically for it.

The challenge asks for 5 to 20 images, taken specifically during the month to be posted between the 7th and 15th of the following month. It is now mid-February and so I am sharing my January images.

Confused? You won’t be.

As mentioned in my original post on this topic, the main images will be over at Runestone so please visit there if you want to see the photos in all their original glory a larger size.

Cardinal Guzman’s post for this month is here, along with a list of participants.

Bread and butter for one two things, for instance. However, I do have a beef:Continue readingB-B-B-B-B-Bovril

It’s coming…

It’s coming…

We are getting ever closer to our new van. It is supposedly 13 days away. I say “supposedly” because we have been here before and I shall not quickly forget the horrors of last year when Mr Snail had to stay near Paris for several nights after travelling up on the train at 6am and… Continue reading It’s coming…

Well, that was unexpected…

Well, that was unexpected…

I was confiding that Heidi’s days with us are numbered, we had picked out our new van and that Mr Snail was taking her to Cognac to get a PX price… Things did not go to plan. Heidi was looking gorgeous, considering her age, and we both agreed that the fact that they had asked… Continue reading Well, that was unexpected…

    I went over to see the large versions. A great set of photos with some wonderful light. Those sheep looks well coated for the winter and it’s interesting to see the old stone architecture.
