Going camping in the lake district this weekend with some friends and i’m so excited to just be outside! apologies for my absence as of late, i’ll be back to posting regularly soon! sending lots of love and positive vibes to you all. here’s a shot from the iconic lake louise in banff national park, alberta, canada. have you ever been to the canadian rockies? 🏔
photo taken with a @canonuk 5dmkiv and a 35mm f1.4 l ii lens 📸
The reality of photos that don’t come out how you’d like them to...
if you remember, i did a poppy photoshoot with a couple of models, this is savannah😍
when we started this shoot, the wind just went crazy so it was very rare that we got a photo without hair in the face!
i would definitely love to do this photoshoot again next year when the poppies are at their best and the sun is shining- no wind this time!
i also used my preset as you guys love it so much!
you have also probably heard about lebanon and the explosion that happened yesterday in the port of beirut. please think about all the families going through this.
camera: canon eos 400d
I shot this with kodakporta400 on canon eos 1000f
The bubble nebula
this is ngc7635 or the bubble nebula.
the bubble is being blown by a stellar bubble machine, the massive hot young star at the bottom of the bubble as you see it here. it’s stellar wind carved out the bubble shape in the gas and the gas itself is ionised causing it to glow for us to see.
estimates of its distance to earth range from 7000 to 11000 light years - either way we are not popping there for our summer vacation.
this is also my entry into antione and dalia’s (@galactic.hunter ) competition on their “my astro journal” app. the app is really great for tracking all the targets you have captured and looking back to see the images.
if you haven’t already, go and download it, then image the bubble nebula and enter this months competition to win a gift card for @optcorp !

For so long, it felt like the sky fell, like my world broke in two, there was nothing left, just visions of her, the beauty stuck in my head, then i saw the sunset, my world lit up, everything felt better, i saw my mistake disappear, when i found you, knew that love was true
Another bee from my session in amongst the purple loosestrife. it was pretty gusty and the plants were wobbling and blowing around like crazy, but this bumblebee didn’t seem to notice, it just carried on hopping from bloom to bloom 💜🐝
Paws up because we’re half way through the week 🐾

The u11 & u12 @berkswelljunior inter-squad match produced plenty of entertaining cricket at the lant last night.
Sometimes i think there are only two kinds of people out there: one kind is free, selfless and capable of involving into other people's shenanigans; the other one is just relentlessly focused on defending their broken ego and destroying everything that comes between them and their complacency.
i hope i was controversial.
