We’re well and truly back in ‘Groundhog Day’ mode this week with freezing weather, icy winds and snow showers throughout the day that just make you want to stay indoors, keep warm and wait for the world to reopen – which (apart from a foray to get some shopping and a bit of exercise) was pretty much what I did. Most of my time’s been spent scanning dozens more old pictures whilst catching up on other work projects for the future. My office was cozy and the pictures I was dealing with took me to all sorts of exotic locations, which made up for some of the stir-craziness. I’ve not had chance to edit them yet, that’ll be done over the next few days, but I have selected one as the picture of the day, just to remind you that there is a wider world out there and winter’s just a season.
I took this shot of Rosthwaite and the Borrowdale fells in the Lake District on the 16th June 2000. A group of us had driven up from London for a long weekend in the lakes and our timing couldn’t have been better as the weather was superb.
I’ve a mixture of pictures from India, Denmark and the UK to add to my website this week, but when the English ones are done you’ll be able to find them in this gallery.
I’ve a favour to ask…
If you enjoy reading this blog, please click on an advert or two. You don’t have to buy anything you don’t want to of course (although if you did find something that tickled your fancy that would be fab!), but the revenue from them helps to cover some of the cost of maintaining this site – and right now (because of Covid), us freelances need all the help that we can get. Remember, 99% of the pictures used in my blogs can be purchased as prints from my other website – https://paulbigland.zenfolio.com/
