Saklikent Gorge, Turkey

21 Jan

Whilst visiting the Saklikent Gorge we had the chance to walk a small section of the gorge before tubing down the river, which was fantastic!

Fethiye, Turkey

21 Jan

On the day we decided to take the Dolmus to Fethiye it was particularly windy, the sea was incredibly rough and caused a lot of small fishing boats to overturn or sink as can be seen from the photographs.

Olu Deniz, Turkey

Whilst visiting Olu Deniz we decided to paraglide from a height of roughly 2000m from Babadag Mountain. The experience was fantastic and the views were phenomenal.

9 Months!

21 Jan

I can’t quite believe it has been over 9 months since I last wrote a post! Although I have predominantly been working full time I did manage to squeeze in a holiday to Olu Deniz in Turkey, a trip to Koutouloufari in Crete, indoor skydiving, a trip to Chester Zoo, a weekend in Llandudno, a flight in a helicopter and a few days at the lake with friends. I am also attending dressmaking and tailoring evening classes.

In the next few posts I am going to share a few photographs I took whilst traveling and some images of my craft projects. I then intend to blog a little more regularly in the coming months!

Words and Woodland Photography

18 Apr

This afternoon I went to the woods for a walk with the dog, as it was a bright sunny day I had intended to take my camera with me but I forgot it! Instead I collected leaves, bark and sticks to photograph at home. I even found a rusted bottle top, some pieces of sandstone and a few Celandines. Once home I went out to my studio with a stack of newspapers, magazines and leaflets to use as backgrounds for the photographs. Half an hour later I had roughly 100 images! Here are some of my favourites.

Riviera Maya – Mexico

18 Apr

The following photographs concentrate on the beautiful scenery I saw whilst in Mexico. The Mayan ruins were photographed at Tulum and Coba. The photographs of the lagoons and cenotes are at Xel-ha and the Mayan home, which I photographed, was in a very small village, which we passed on our return journey to the hotel. The house was very basic, made entirely from wood with a hammock for sleeping; a fire for cooking and some hens in the yard for eggs and meat. I noticed they did have one light bulb and a hose hanging in a small shack at the back of the house so I imagine they did have access to running water and electricity. A small area at the front of the house sold handmade items to tourist, coconuts and homemade bread were also offered.
