My main love next to my new wife is photography currently using a Nikon D5000  I will post some of my favourite photos here, please don’t copy and use elsewhere. If you see a photo you like please ask if you wish to use it thank you.

1st May and as the sun was shining I done some written homework and then took myself off for a wander with my camera, it feels likes its been ages since I done this so really enjoyed exploring, firstly I took a stroll along the Durham Coastal Path on the site of the old EasingtonIIy Colliery. it looks like The National Trust (NT) have been having a clear out as its seems even barer than when I was last there with lots of bushes and shrubs cleared from the paths. Next, it was onto somewhere I hadn’t been before Hurworth Burn Reservoir, this fab spot is about 15 min drive from where we live but I’ve only recently discovered it and what a find it is easily accessible with good footpaths and a photographers dream a hide overlooking the burn. Today was a bit on the quiet side for birds I only managed to spy a family of herons, but I will be back plenty more over the summer.


After a week of struggling with asthma and depression i gave in and went to the doctors who gave me new meds with exacerbated my problems and made me sleepy. So i decided they werent for me and i needed to get out more so on Saturday i went for an evening stroll around the beautiful city that is Durham. Here is just a few images i took.


This followed on Sunday Morning by a walk through Hardwick Park, nr Sedgefield. Its 3 weeks since we were last here and wow have the goslings grown they are now fully fledged Canadian Geese but is was so good to see the new cygnets. We are lucky there is so much to see and do locally to us and even on the way home we stopped at farmers field to take pictures of the Linseed fields which are full of colour especially when the sun shines.
