March 2017

The ups and downs of March

Everything seems to start to spring back to life in March. There is blossom on the trees and the roads are lined with yellow daffodils. March is the month where we turn our backs on Winter and start thinking about Spring and Summer. I was hoping Buckinghamshire might see a little bit more snow, but the ground is just too low here, unlike Scotland and Cumbria who were recently treated to another fall. Certainly in the latter part of the month the temperature has definitely risen.

The good thing about March is that it is now light enough for me to go out taking pictures before I start work. Even with the clocks going forward I still have enough light to work. There was only a handful of mornings that I did not go out, mainly due to heavy rain or strong wind. Not surprisingly we did get a good number of misty mornings, which I was more than happy with. Here is a section of images from March.

My two exhibitions in March went very well. The first one was at the ‘Chilterns MS centre’ in Halton, followed by ‘Art on the Hill’ in Brill. Thank you everyone that came along especially those who bought something! My next local exhibition will now be Bucks Open Studios in June. However, I will have a couple of images on show at the Connected exhibition near Nottingham throughout April and May.

On a downside my camera failed whilst I was out trying to shoot the final sunrise of March. It has been playing up for some time, so I knew it was on the cards. Armed with some research and information from visiting the Photography show earlier in the month. I now need to find a replacement.
