For those that don’t know, I’m a cycling fan. Today, Stage 5 of the Tour of Britain set off from Exeter and meandered around Devon for 180km, before ending up at Exmouth. It was a roughly circular route, so we managed to see the race start at Exeter, pass by at Crediton, and finish at […]Read more "The Tour of Britain 2011 – Exeter to Exmouth"
Today I went to Bristol zoo with Hannah and her parents. The sun was out and it was a lovely day for shooting with my Canon 450D and slightly slow Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 telephoto lens.

I took the day off work to watch, as my brother Edmund was competing for King Henry VIII school, running the sixth leg. I ran the Relay a few years ago so it was a bit […]Read more "King Henry VIII Relay"
It’s a full moon tonight, so here’s yet another picture of the moon. I’m fascinated by that rock. This time I played with other “props” to complement the moon – in this case, next door’s hedge.Read more "Full moon"
