The other day, while walking back from a friend’s, I decided to take a detour past North Sands Beach and happened to get such a lovely shot of the beach that I thought I’d share it with you (click to see the full image on RedBubble)!
If you’re in Salcombe at any point, it’s worth checking the tide tables before visiting North Sands, because at low tide you can climb round to North Sands Castle and at high tide there’s hardly any beach. There are paths behind the beach that lead to some beautiful woodlands that are full of bluebells at this time of year, so if you can go, it’s really worth a visit. In the meantime, I might post a few more photos of this beautiful area (and possibly some maps for suggested local walks).
Photography is my way of showing my appreciation and love of the beautiful South Devon countryside and the local wildlife. A particular interest in macro photography means I can often be found in awkward crouching positions near flowers, just trying to get the perfect shot of a colourful bee or butterfly.
Last Friday one of my photographs (Start Point Lighthouse) was published in the Kingsbridge, Salcombe and South Hams Gazette (link). I was happily surprised to see it there and hope that someone out there likes it.
This week I’ve been practicing a set for my harp gig at The Cottage Hotel on 27th December. There’ll be mulled wine and a chance to chat over a selection of carols and well known tunes.
To end, here’s a picture from my morning walk the other day. I’m struggling to believe how warm and sunny it is, when this time last year everything was covered in a thick layer of ice. Hope the weather stays this way!
I decided to upload some of my better photos to redbubble, just to see how it goes. Once my new camera arrives and I’ve had a bit of a chance to play with it, I expect I’ll have plenty more images to add to this mini portfolio.
