Aside from cooking and crafting, one of my favourite hobbies is photography. Now, I don’t proclaim to be an expert, I tend to point and press and hope for the best! I have a nice camera and long for a really big lens to go with it!
Photography isn’t something I spend enough time doing in my opinion. I just find it relaxing. I prefer animals, landscapes and ‘things’ over people, as they don’t tend to moan if you make their nose look too big!
Recently I have been indulging in this pastime a bit though.
One of the parks near where I live, is quite well known in the town for having a breeding pair of swans and every year, people watch and wait for the latest generation of cygnets to be born. This year, we were treated to eight of the little balls of fluff.
I was also lucky enough to witness the DAKS Over Normandy Fly Over, as they made their way from Duxford to Normandy, retracing the flight they made 75-years-ago for D-Day. My husband and I waited for 4 hours at Beachy Head for them, after their take-off was delayed. It was freezing cold up there, but well worth the wait.
This past weekend was pure bliss though. We were in Spalding, Lincolnshire, where this is a lovely little place called the Baytree Owl and Wildlife Centre. It’s definitely worth a visit. We watched the falconry show and I spent a good few hours just taking photos of these amazing birds.
