Blog Map

Sometimes I escape from the cellar and travel to places then write blogs about them. For no other reason than shameless showing off you can browse these articles on map.

Winter Creeps In

March 11, 2017 | View on map

+*-The woods breathe. Imperceptible, exhale mist, expel dew, form sparkling crystals on the mossy floor. Cracked and jagged limbs dance still to winter’s brittle rhythm. Half imagined faces in the peeling wooden skin, joyful at the glittering of frost...

Keep It Down

January 21, 2017 | View on map

+*-So today I went out to try out the new Zoom H6 and do a little field recording (in an actual field). I’ve got some audio I want to capture for an animation project I’m working on and had some specific sounds I wanted to try and get. I’m generally aware of how close to […]

Photographs of Burnham Beeches – Spring/Summer 2016

September 4, 2016 | View on map

+*-I've been kicking through the long grass, ferns and ant battalions of Burnham Beeches recently. Working in Bourne End has it's positives but the same spaces every day begin to lose their interest and the hard walk up Hedsor Hill which on a good day is bracing becomes a chore when anxiety is tactlessly scratching at my nerves.

Jubilee Meadows – Wootton Oxfordshire

+*-Stumbled into an unexpected nature reserve to the chagrin of the local wildlife. Photos and a video.

St. James the less – Stubbings – Photos

March 28, 2016 | View on map

+*-I’ve driven past St. James the less in Stubbings (Maidenhead) repeatedly over the last couple of decades but never had the chance to stop and take a look around. I was on my way back from hiking in the Chilterns much earlier than expected and the low winter sun looked phenomenal so stopped to look […]

St. Mary the Virgin In Turville

March 27, 2016 | View on map

+*-I had to think about including this entry as I’m not particularly happy with any of the shots. I only stopped in here on the way back from a long hike in the Chilterns, I was quite tired and a little emotional. At some point I’ll drop back in and give it another try. It’s […]

Fresh air, tea and a glimmer of sanity (in the Chilterns)

March 17, 2016 | View on map

+*-It’s been a long year already and bought some unexpected changes, some harsh but which have over time worked out for the better. I’ve been putting off writing this for a good few weeks and that’s probably a good thing as I now have a better aspect on everything. A little distance helps the focus. […]

Holiday Pics – Buckler’s Hard

January 10, 2016 | View on map

+*-It has a funny name, the promise of naval shenanigans, it's in the New Forest and we were on holiday.

Holiday Pics – Liberty’s Owl, Raptor and Reptile Centre

+*-We spent our customary annual morning at Liberty's Owl, Raptor and Reptile centre, which continues to be lovely.

Burnham Beeches in Autumn

October 17, 2015 | View on map

+*-I escaped work a little early the other day to have a wander round Burnham Beeches and take some photos of trees and fungi in the autumn sunlight.

All Saints’ Church, Binfield – Photos

August 6, 2015 | View on map

+*-I like churches. Historically and architecturally I find them fascinating, as an environment I find them calming. They are one of the few places I can be where no-one is yelling at me. Being somewhere no-one yells at me makes me feel better about myself. Going back a few years I would spend a fair […]

Braywick Nature Centre, Maidenhead – August 2015

August 5, 2015 | View on map

+*-I've been out practicing with the camera on my lunch breaks (also I need to get some exercise before I can no longer fit in any of my clothes). It's only a ten minute walk from my office in the centre of Maidenhead and it's usually devoid of anyone other than the occasional dog walker.

Return to Checkendon and the Nuba Survival

March 5, 2015 | View on map

+*-I went back to Checkendon on a grey, drizzly day. Not what I’d hoped given how long I’d been meaning to find time to return. It’s not that far from where I live, but it’s just far enough to be a little too far to drop in just to trek across a field to see […]

Checkendon Sculpture – The Nuba Embrace

February 16, 2008 | View on map

+*-A while back Scott discovered a weird, slightly creepy and incredibly intriguing sculpture by a run down barn in the middle of a field somewhere between Henley and Reading. He took me along to see it a couple of times and we tookl a few photos. We did a bit of research (well googling) into […]
