Lechlade in Winter
Following a recent blast of snow, in which Gloucestershire and Wiltshire were hit particularly badly, my newly adopted home town rose to the occasion and showed us how you can look beautiful even when all your trees are bare.

Seats decorated by the Minnack Theatre’s founder and creator Rowena Cade, using a screwdriver in her own special mix of concrete. Each one represents a play that has been put on at the theatre.

Highlights from my post-Christmas trip to the southern tip of Cornwall. Thank you to Anya & her family for inviting me to join you for a few days!
I’d also like to say a special thank you to my brother Steven, who bought me a year’s subscription to Adobe Photography suite for Christmas. I’ve enjoyed editing these photos using Adobe Lightroom rather than the freebie editing software I’ve been using to date. A whole new world has opened up to me!
