Nine more photos

Hi there, remember me? 🙂 I know it’s been a few weeks since I last posted some photos, I hope you’re well?  This week I’ve nine more photos to post up, which I hope you like.

As usual from my nine more photos there are some new and some old. Starting with the old..

Hose Hill Lake

I took these almost a year ago to the day down at Hose Hill Lake, Burghfield. It was a beautiful day, the air was so crisp and clear, perfect for taking a photo or two. Oddly I passed over these pictures back then (sometimes I take so many that this is easily done 🙂 )

Barkham

Taken earlier this year – January to be precise – in Barkham, on the way to Wokingham. It was a wonderfully cold morning back then. I managed to grab a shot just as the sun was peeking over the hill. Perfect timing!

Castle Combe

I still rate this place as one of the quaintest places I have ever visited. It’s a tine little village nestled somewhere in Wiltshire. The sky is edited to give a more interesting look, I want to go back on a better day…

Summer

…seems like a distant memory now. We did have a good one, didn’t we? I took this on my way back from Reading, along the River Kennet. It was a beautiful day and it was the first time I’d followed the river into town.

Nine more photos

Frosty Grazeley

And these last few were taken last week, about 8am as I was driving in to work. It was one of those clear and frosty mornings that I love so much.

And there we have it, nine more photos to add to the collection! I hope you liked them. I’m hoping that the weather gets a little more interesting in the coming week as this white cloud is a bit dull!

Until next time, take care,

Mart

Castle Combe

It’s the wonderful hump-day once more, I hope you’re having a great week?

This week I have some photos I took about midway through August when I drove down the M4 a few junctions to Castle Combe, an extremely beautiful, quaint and picturesque little village down in Wiltshire.

I’d seen a few photos of this place on the internet and had heard how it had been used in many films, including Doctor Dolittle from the ’60s,  Stardust and more recently War Horse, so really wanted to get down there and take a look around. I’m really glad I did.

There is also a famous race circuit quite near but given I only have a 1.4 Corsa I didn’t think it’d be worth taking it on the track; there’s not really that much of her to open up on a race track!

As usual here’s a random photo although this time it’s not so much an older photo from deep within the archives, but a little taster of the photos I’ll be posting up next week. Those of you who know me on Facebook will have already seen this, it was taken while I was on holiday in Wales a week or so ago, taken on the Pembrokeshire coastline near Borth, Wales;

Final Sunset at Brynowen TMLR

Ok, a couple more random photos, this time of our Ridgie Maya. This photo got me a feature on IG…which was nice 🙂 and, surprise surprise another sunset pic…

And so onto Castle Combe, I hope you like the pics. I do want to go back there, this time hopefully when there is blue sky so I can get the full beauty of this wonderful little village…

And to finish, while we were there I grabbed a few shots of my beautiful daughter who can the perfect model when she wants to be! I really love getting the shallow depth of field in these kinds of shots.

As I mentioned earlier, next week I’ll have some shots of the Pembrokeshire coastline. Until then take care 🙂
