County Cricket

I went into the county ground in Taunton to watch Somerset v Nottinghamshire on Monday afternoon, it was the second day of a four day county championship match. The game concluded today with a win for Somerset by 2 wickets.

The new stand was having work done on it as the cricket was being play. This new devlopment has taken the place of the Old Pavilion, built back in 1881.

Ham Hill

Went over Yeovil direction this afternoon to Ham Hill. Lovely sunny day so I took my camera with me and took a few photos up there, which included the stone circle and war memorial.

Speckledy

We’ve added three new chickens to our free ranged flock recently, all Speckledys. One of them with the whitest neck wouldn’t let me get in line of sight with her for a photo. The other two were a little easier to get a few snaps off.

Mollie

My stunning friend Mollie was brave enough to allow me to take my first proper photos of a person last Thursday. I had a lot of fun taking these photos with Mollie and am really pleased with the photos we got out of it. The first one is with my family’s youngest Labrador Skye getting involved.

Using my tripod we took a good number of photos from the same spot that I later used masks in photoshop to combine the photos together to achieve the following.

Lyme Regis

Day trip down to Lyme Regis yesterday with my Dad, had some very tasty crab baguettes and a pint of the local Palmers ale. The first photo here I’m sure has been taken by many a photographer before me, the rocks off the end of the harbor.
