The Storm

21st July 2016
I haven't stopped running about since my last update! Running around, but not being productive....

We have finally made it to the end of term! Lachlan has got through his first year of school, and today... Hamish goes to nursery for the last time! It is scary to think that all the children are going to be in school once the new term starts. I think Hamish is looking forward to it, especially as he will be in the same classroom as his big brother for the first year.

Yesterday's excitement though came courtesy of a massive thunderstorm! It was one of the biggest ones I have experienced in years, although unfortunately it didn't come complete with epic light! There were some fantastic cloud structures though, which I witnessed but couldn't photograph as I was driving (if you can call it that when the road is a river) at the time.

I did manage one shot though, taken from Morecambe looking back to the Lake District.



I think that is it for news at the moment. It's one of those times where I have dozens of balls in the air, but nothing really coming to a conclusion so there really is little in the way of exciting news just at the moment!

There is so much I should be getting on with though, hopefully after this weekend I will get a little time and space to make some inroads into it all. I should probably have spent some time sorting out entries for Landscape Photographer of the Year, the deadline for which sailed past as I was otherwise preoccupied - only the second year I haven't entered (although the last time was the first year I didn't shortlist), but perhaps I will be more organised for Outdoor Photographer of the Year which I usually do pretty well in too.

My ankle, meanwhile, is continuing to improve and strengthen... albeit at snails pace! Hopefully this should start enabling me to get to some better locations over the coming months, particularly as we move into Autumn when the light gets better and the landscape starts to regain it's drama!
