my passion is travel; my enjoyment photography

East Cowes, Isle of Wight

Queen Victoria and Prince Albert bought Osborne House near East Cowes as a seaside home for them and their family.

When I visited Osborne House I managed to get down to the harbour…how beautiful is this!

Cowes is famous for it’s annual boat race.

snow in London 2010

One of the things I love most about winter in the UK is the possibility of snow and this year has brought an early gift!  I have loved being aboe to get out an take photos of some of my favourite places…..

I just love that stands so tall - majestically surveying the land around

I have managed to take a walk on Hampstead Heath and visited the viaduct bridge which looks ethereal, the pond completely frozen over!

Winter is prime time for interesting photography and I enjoy walking across Hampstead Heath to see how different it is to summer!

autumnal sunset at the ponds on Hamsptead Heath

Highgate where I live is close to Hampstead Heath, and I have often walked about at leisure on the heath, and have taken hundreds of photos including many many of the fishing pond.  I have caputured some really lovely moments but this is surely one of the best so far! Taken yesterday at sunset approx 16:06.
