Calendar and Wolf Park Spain


Its that time of year to make a new calendar and the good news was in one  of those generally tedious emails we call spam. However the news was that Jessops were giving 50% off cost of calendars with no catch at all except the offer ran out at midnight last night. So here are a few photos that made it into the final selection of 12 photos. Really very difficult to pick 12 photos over a year particularly when one is banned from including football or cricket photos………… Probably need to explain that this photo was taken maybe 7pm at night near Anteqquera in Spain, maybe 40 km from Malaga heading north, at a wolf Park.

This is kind of unique really. This guy best described as a sort of Wolf version of Steve  Irwin but totally into his wolves. He keeps them wild but in huge fenced areas of thousands of acres but gets in with them sometimes and had his hand almost bitten off once before.  Website URL is  http://www.lobopark.com/04_einrichtung/e/facilities.htm  and well worth a visit

Norton Park Hotel near Winchester


A nice evening last night as an end of year department meeting and overnight stay in a nice hotel. The best part of the evning was a cocktail making demonstration then competition, where our team made decent Mojito’s and something called Cosmopolitan. This morning awoke to find that temperatures must have plummeted overnight as the car was covered in thick ice but on the drive out from the hotel through a freezing fog/mist there were some great photo opportunites to be had.  On that note Jessops have half price calendars till Dec 6th. Well worth a visit.
