Monday-on-Sea

Yesterday was quite an exciting time for me, as I led a group of 20 other people on an 8-mile ramble around the hills of Bath. It was the first time I’d led the walking group and I have many positives to take from the whole experience. I’ll tell you about it another time because today, I’m going to reflect back one week to another brief outdoor adventure, with the day booked off work.

The beach at Burnham-on-Sea in Somerset.

I took a 30-minute journey south to Burnham-on-Sea and it was mainly for sentimental reasons that are too personal to disclose on this blog. It was the first time I’d visited the seaside-town since a school trip two-decades ago and I’d been curious about revisiting the area for sometime. My return bought back a few memories and more positives to take from the day away from home.

All of the photos here were taken with my Nikon S8200 camera but some have been ‘enhanced’ through the power of Instagram.

Yandles Spring Show – 5th-6th April 2013

Earlier today, I did indeed complete the drive south down to Yandles for the annual spring woodworking show (they also hold an autumn show in September, in case you didn’t know.

While I was there, I made the brave effort to get my camera out and to shoot a brief sequence of video clips that would give an impression of what’s available at one of these shows. It was a big step for me and I had to overcome a lot of anxiety to simply get my camera out of its bag, whilst walking alone through such a heavily occupied arena. Above, you can see the results of my work and an hour’s worth of editing this evening.

There’s a little more detail to follow if you read on below this line but I do welcome your comments, thoughts, opinions and feedback. 🙂
