Happy New Year / by David Davies

Well the new year and January has brought typically British winter weather and I'm not the sort to be out in all weathers with the tripod tied to a tree in the teeth of a howling gale. Oh no, I'd prefer to be watching it all from the window of a warm bar. But, we have had one or two bright days so I've ventured out into Kent and wandered around a couple of interesting locations. I found Leeds Castle a tricky place and only managed to get one half decent composition in a three hour shoot. However, I now have a slightly better understanding of the location and will try it again soon. Scotney Castle near Lamberhurst was much easier, smaller, and with a compact location I managed a few compositions which are now in the Gallery. Leave a comment if you're so disposed. Ok, that's enough, more later. Happy New Year everyone!
