North Cliffs Hayle Cornwall

Got out on the coast path for a few hours yesterday with the camera even though it was bit grey and miserable managed to get couple of shots of the cliffs, I just love the way the sea and the landscape around where I live changes day by day. Cornwall is so beautiful in its raw state the structure of the cliffs carved out of the granite by the ocean waves and wind.

Mallorca Spain

With summer being my main time of year to work, we booked to winter break to Mallorca Spain a chance to relax with family and also get a bit of winter sun. Only being there for a few days, time to explore was limited but we made the most of a hire car and explored so of the more remote areas of the island. Being drawn towards the mountain villages and the cliffs around these areas but at the same time trying to stay away from the main tourist spots.

I'm looking forward to heading back over there again when its slightly hotter and I have a little more time to go of the beaten track and see what the island has to offer. We went in the middle of January and if I had did a bit more research on the area I think I would of waited and headed out at the start of February as we would of been there when the almond blossom was in full bloom, which from what I have now discovered happens from the end of January till late into February.

All that being said I found the island to be a beautiful place with very friendly local's and very good value for money with our flights form Bristol airport only costing £80 each. The food was great and I would suggest anyone who visits goes to Palma on a Tuesday and heads to the old town to check out tapas Tuesday so many great fresh fish dishes to eat over a course of an afternoon and very good value with dishes coming in from 2 euro's a plate.

Jason and Merryn's Wedding

Jason and Merryn Seez's wedding held at the harbourside hotel st ives was my last wedding of the year and held on a damp winters day. The hotel is very quirky and  brilliant for photography with many little spots that you can take the couple of to without having to go outside. It was disappointing not to be able top head to one of the local beaches in St Ives and get the couple shots as the golden sands make for beautiful photos. But with a brief from the bride to get very relaxed coverage of the event and for friends and family shots then this was not an issue.
