Parracombe snow

farm in gentle hills snow at night

A chance photo from the main round near Parracombe, Devon. It was taken through a wound down car window, the setting sun had just picked out this farm on a winter’s evening. Serendipity, or fortuitous happenstance, took me past just at that time.

Are we going to get another dump of snow this year? it just keeps raining right now.

Do sheep enjoy a sunset?

One evening I decided to drive up onto the moors, only a mile or two from my house – it looked like a nice sunset was promised.

This is not retouched. The sunset was more spectacular than I’ve ever seen and kept changing every couple of minutes. While I was snapping away, amazed by the natural beauty of the sky and spectacular colours, I noticed that the sheep couldn’t care less about. Had they seen it all before? After all, they are up there almost every night.

This was shot above Parracombe in North Devon, England. A beautiful place to live and bring up children – and not bad for grazing sheep too.

Lynmouth beach

Lynmouth beach

It’s exactly a one mile walk from my house in Lynton (on the top of the cliffs) to the beach at Lynmouth. Nobody builds sandcastles here other than in their minds.

Lynton and Lynmouth are twin villages situated at the western edge of Exmoor National Park in the South West of England. The population hovers around 1200 people, but greatly increases with seasonal visitors.
