Dartmoor in September

This shift from August to September is one of my favourite times, especially out on the hills..the purple and green of heather, the yellow (and scent!!) of the gorse, the light spikes and smear of grasses, and the changing skies. And there’s something about knowing that these places have gone through all this since they began, and you’re only catching a part of it.

I’ve been studying for a diploma in horticulture over the past year and it’s made me feel somehow even more connected to the things growing all around us. I remember that I am surrounded by and a part of the whole of things, from the tiniest ant to the largest tree.

I wonder if  looking through a lens or writing about these things will feel different, in the same way that knowing about a person helps a portrait?

Bovey Contemporary Craft Festival – Revisted

A while ago, I took some photographs at the Bovey Tracey Contemporary Craft Festival.

I had such a great day – walking around, admiring and photographing. These kinds of events make you yearn to make things..

I never realised cabbages could be beautiful!

It was hard to work out the light and blur in this one – too much dark and it was too cabbagey, too light and it lost its structure..hoping I’ve found a happy medium..!
