The Swans of Painshill Park


They look like they are asking for passport photos to be done and posing. Surpringly calm and no hissing at me for comeing quite close to them. Taken with a 100mm Canon EF Macro lens.

The SwanTortionist at Painshill Park Cobham


A curious swan behaving like he had ADHD and not keeping still. Quite a contortionist.

The Best Photos of 2014. Maybe.


This is the time of year that I frantically try and complete a calendar for 2015.  Here is the short list of my photos. It has been a strange photographic year really. Some memorable shots but maybe not as many as in past years so it has been relatively easy to get down to a final set of 22. all help appreciated in helping me choose the final 12.

Painshill Park in Cobham Surrey


At any season Painshill is a beautiful place to visit. Autumn it can sometimes be at its best, with autumnal colours, swans, cygnets and numerous other bird fowl. If you have not been there then you should visit. The walks, the landscape, the bridges are impressive. Tonight just a little photo tour only. And wednesdays in November it is free to visit.

The Animals of Farthing Wood go down to Painshill Park Cobham


A grey day but some of the creatures came out to play

A grebe and a fish

A goose with a wish

A ruined abbey at the end of the day

A swan who dribbles

A goose what quibbles

And a fish that had had its say
