"Winter" Date: 07/01/2010 Description: One time, not long after new years, I was building and igloo in the front garden with an old rectangle cake tin (as you do). We had just had an amazing amount of snow fall that started when the clock struck midnight on new years. While building this amazing snow structure - this amazing little bird flew right up to me and I managed to get this shot. Everything about this picture makes me think winter and with it festive times.

"The Fall" Date Taken: 16/04/2014 Description: Roughting Linn Waterfall is a rather large (for England) waterfall tucked away in a remote hidden location in it's hills. I have been there many times however this time I had my trusty camera with me and found something awesome in the thin trickle's of water from the top away from the main stream of the water. The top of the Waterfall is at least 35 foot from the ground, seeing it from underneath was pretty beautiful.

It was late afternoon and the atmosphere couldn't of been any more fitting for being in a place of rest.
