52 walks in 2010 - week two

So here are the images from my walk last week. A colleague and I went for a walk during our lunch break as I had not been out in the snow with my camera. By the time I went the snow was cleared from the roads and starting to thaw however the trees still looked great against the white fields.

I will most likely remove the telegraph posts from the images when I get time. Over the next few days I also intend to create scrapbook layouts of the images from each the year end I will have one packed album! The first image is rather dark but I think I like it still.

52 Walks in 2010 - week one

I am very behind in uploading these images but still want to do so....52 walks in 2010 is a photography challenge I have decided to take up for the year. I normally fail miserably at these type of year long challenges but determined to get out in the fresh air with my camera so much more this year. My next challenge is to upload them in the right week rather than get to week 3 with no uploads.

For the first week Tinks and I (plus Lucy) headed off to Seasalter beach - there had been a fine layer of snow. Unfortunately my camera batteries decided to fail after just 8 shots - normally I carry loads of spares but on that day I had literally grabbed said camera and run out of the door - you would think I would know better!
Here are a couple of the images - not great but will do.

Thought I would start experimenting with the blog today and introduce some backgrounds - thanks Sarah for the link. I will play further and can imagine this blog will be similar to my house...I will re-arrange it frequently.

On the note of my house - I am hoping to finish getting it how I want it this week and then leave well alone and then spend my free time scrapping etc (I may even complete my course and focus on other things!) . I have only completed 6 LO's so far this year - still on track to achieve 200 by the end of the year but I have not done any scrapping this week and have really missed it.

Well it looks like I have to go into work tomorrow - I have not managed to have a single day off with the snow as our company works 24-7 and we get there even if we had to walk - luckily a few 4x4's have prevented us working!

I will probably post again later this week and start putting a slideshow of LOs together. See you all then.

First Post

Well Jane has persuaded me to activate my blog. Please bear with me though as it may take me a while to get it fully up and running with layouts and reading lists...

I have been very busy today re-arranging aspects of my house - my scrapping stash is being moved downstairs and in the process of doing so I have had to move the kitchen cupboards around and have a general tidy up.
