Lake Vyrnwy

Im off to Lake Vyrnwy on Sunday and will be spending the week there for my school work experience. I will also be visiting Gigrin Farm ( Red Kite Feeding Station) during my stay. I am unsure on internet access for the week so I may not be able to post my pics throughout the week so you may have to wait until Monday 15th. Anyway I will be at Venus pool, Shropshire on Saturday and I’ll definitely be able to post at least some then.
I am not on the laptop at the mo’ so I don’t have any recent photo’s to post so you will have to make do with boring writing.

Canada Goslings At Drift.

Me and Mum have just bought a new camera, Canon 1D MKII. As Mum has no technological sense what so ever I have taken hold of the camera. So now I will be shooting mainly with the 1D MK2 and Mum will attempt to use the 450D and Tamron 70-300. She will be setting up a blog over the next few days and I will post the URL when it is up and running.
