When I was asked to join my friends for a photo trip in December, I have to admit, I was excited. The destination was Anglesey, an island off the north-west coast of Wales.
This year’s December was very wet, the South part of Wales was flooded and it was raining when we set off from Nottingham. Our main goal was to photograph the sunset on Black Point, especially Penmon Lighthouse on the coast.
Bradgate Park is a historic Mediaeval park in the heart of the ancient Charnwood Forest. It retains much of its original landscape with small woods, grassy slopes and rocky outcrops. Swithland Wood – 146 acres of Ancient Woodland. It is Leicestershire’s largest, most visited country park and was originally created as a deer park. Red and fallow deer can still be seen feeding among the bracken.
It’s more than a year since I become a member of Nottingham Outlaws photographic society. When I joined last year, I was told that every year there is a photo trip organised by the club. This time the destination was Morecambe.
Morecambe as a location was not very inspiring and we took to the Lake District or the North York Moors for photo inspiration, so in all the location was reasonably central.
