One A Day 88:365 Composition with logs and branches and river stones.

88:365 Composition with logs and branches and river stones. The river Teign runs along the bottom of the field near the cottage we are staying in. And on our morning walk today me and Jim found it a little more subdued than yesterday's torrent. Lots of branches and logs were stuck in trees in the flood path. So we created a dinosaur type arrangement together.

Early morning walk.

Early morning walk with Jim my 11 yr old nephew in the frosty fields of daffodils. This shot was his idea. Heroic.

One A Day 87:365 Composition with sticks and stone.

87:365 Composition with sticks and stone. Spent the day on the moors today. Walked up Haytor and found a patch of beautiful weathered sticks on the way back down. I went for bit of an Andy Goldsworthy approach around a solitary granite stone.

A second One A Day because this place is so photogenic. I used bits of dry reeds stuck in moss stuck in a rock crevice. It was fiddly and windy and cold there in the mud and shadow of that huge granite boulder. My 8 year old niece waited with me very patiently whilst I faffed around for ages on this one.

A lovely day for en plain air.

A lovely day for en plain air. Can't resist a thatch roof. The cottages are so wonky and cake like. Great drawing practice.

86:365 Composition with golfing tees and front lawn. I found some stray golf tees out the front of Mum and Dads house so I thought I might bend the rules and raid Dads golfing bag for more. Not adhering strictly to the #oneaday principles but I couldn't resist.
