Here's where I tell you about racing my red-bearded Viking of a step brother on the paddleboard. And then putting my mom on the front and gondolier-ing her across the cove while singing like a tortured cat. I like this thing. I want one!
The aftermath of the Canyon Fire 2 disaster that happened last week. I wasn’t sure that I was going to go out and take these images. Especially since emotions surrounding it are still very raw. But upon contemplation, I decided that this story needed to be told out of respect for those that were lost. This image, and subsequent images, were taken legally and by me. I made sure to stay far away from any of the recovery efforts taking place. Nature, while resilient in many ways, is fragile. Time is fleeting. Our lives are delicate.
This pic just goes to show you can never wait too long for the right moment. Light was fading, the stars and the moon were coming out, but we were able to catch some color. Always enjoy my adventures with @jboazphoto 📷 Nikon D750
Lens Nikon 20mm f1.8
A wise friend told me this was a magic portal; whenever you walk through it will be Fall.
The passing of time forces us to assign a value to everything. Be thoughtful in how you spend your time. Spend a moment to appreciate the changing season. Consider how you spend today, for how we live each day is how we live our lives.
..... /// Arlington Court 1/2 \\\ ..... So it’s a busy week as always especially this month with all my preparations going on for what is coming up in the next few! 😬 keep an ear out for the brand new hub 😜
But on Sunday at the weekend I managed to get out of the house and go for an awesome walk around @arlingtoncourtnt, run by the @nationaltrust, with my second family!
Walking around I took plenty of photos but as we where heading back this awesome little out building caught my eye and the colours where just fantastic 😳
It was a gorgeous morning before all the bad weather and the ex-hurricane ophelia and perfect time to get out taking some photos before a couple days of rain! I did also miss that orange sun everyone was going on about as well 😂 I was fast asleep!
The shot above was taken using my @ricohimaginguk Pentax K-1 and an old Takumar 135mm F2.5 if anyone wanted to know. ---
Website will be back up very soon! 😁

Whilst the autumn colours are in full force at the moment, the weather has other ideas. So here is an image from Blea Tarn last year, I loved the stand out golden tree lining the shoreline. It was a waiting game, I was ecstatic when the water calmed and the sun broke through illuminating the golden foliage. What are your plans for the weekend, with the storm now (hopefully) passed?
