Apart from the odd opportunistic shot on an occasional dog walk, yesterday was the first time in a year that I've been out with my camera for the sole purpose of taking photos, and only the second time in a couple of years.
The combinations of full time work with on call duties, doing a full time degree at the same time, whilst have got married last year and doing house renovations this year have meant time and energy have been at a premium.
However, with 3 days off (and a need (want) for a new photo on the wall, I thought it was time to dust of the Nikon. With the exception of the sleep deprivation in order to get out early enough, it's fair to say I realised how much I've missed it. Funny how enjoyable clambering up a hill at half five in the morning and looking at the same scene for two and a half hours can be such a pleasurable experience!
I've a page on facebook here - if you like my images please follow me on there too. Thank you
