Frog begins to work !!




Hi, This is Frog, she is a Blue Roan Welsh Part-Bred filly that I bought as a foal at a dispersal sale, I paid way over the odds for her and was a total impulse buy.
Well now its time for her to have her education, she was backed at Christmas did a little now and again through out the year but now we have sent her off to be schooled correctly and after only a week the change is remarkable, her head carriage and the way she works is a pleasure to watch.
Again I was fighting the light
ISO3200, 115mm, f4, 1/100


Frog will be for sale very soon.....

An unusual confetti image.


This was a very nice wedding to photograph I started at 11am and walked through the front door at 12.15am a very long day but well worth it for the fun and images that I shot.

Hunting?

Had to take a picture of this Grays head.
This image made me chuckle how long is that tie?



Classic hunt scene




Must not forget the hounds.



I think it was this ones first time following the hounds, I just hope that my daughter did not go too fast for him.







Lucinda on the Cow leading a young rider.



And here they are just before they all went hound exercising, it was a very good turn out at Dunsbury Farm with a lot of young riders all being watched over by the adults.







Rick the new Kennel Man ? not to sure what his title is I will have to ask next time I see him.
Lots more pictures here


Don't know who this is but he looked like he was enjoying him self.

Wightlink Raiders Ice Hockey












What a team !! after years of lack luster rubbish it looks like we might have a good team this time, the only weak point and a major one at that is the goalie who is very suspect when under pressure I dought very much he will see the season out.
The whole team are playing to win not just to be numbers on the ice and to nights game which they lost 3-0 was a very close fought affair and two of the goals were very stupid mistakes by the goalie if you want excitement and fast action then go and watch a game.

Mark & Stacey 4-09-08

Mark having his button hole pinned by mum.
What are you doing here..............
This was a sweet moment.
Trying to get the ring onto the finger, they never do go on easy.
Mark was so happy
And Stacy's look says it all.

We all went off to India for this shot.
Never seen a cake like this before absolutely stunning yet very simple.

Reception was at the Bargeman's Rest in Newport we had to dodge the rain for the outside pictures which was a shame.

Bride with all her brothers.
Groom being roughed up a little.




One of their daughters, wonderful eyes.
Another daughter with a non stop grin all day long.

And another daughter who was very shy but soon relaxed and I ended up with a series of lovely images of her.
Mark & Stacey were very unfortunate with the weather so we had no real outside shots but we made up for that at the Bargeman's Rest where I set up some studio lighting and we had fun, They were off to the Bestival for there honeymoon, camping.................. swimming more like I should think.
I think this was one of the more difficult weddings to shoot with the restrictions on places to shoot but I am very happy with the results and cant wait to see there faces when I give them there images and disc's.
