I have been attending a photography course at West Dean College over the Easter weekend. The introduction to this is that my daughter, Ruth, and I were at West Dean over Easter 2014 and talked to a lady who was attending said photography camera. We were so struck by what she said that we signed up for this year's course. The tutor lectured to us (not all that often) and then took us out into the countryside to practise composing photographs. So we had a lot of exercise but it was all overcast so the shots are not marvellous and my macro shots are better than my landscapes - which is what we were supposed to concentrate on.
On Sunday we went to Kingley Vale forest - the oldest remaining yew forest in England. The trees are more than 500 years old and are suitably gnarled.
I like the colours in the bark and can see me weaving something in these colours. I have been out today practising some more.
Not good- oh well.
