EARLY SUMMER IN SUSSEX

Image
The emerald green and vibrant yellow colours of June never cease to lift one's spirits high. Everything is on an upward trend; our moods, our general well-being, the amount of spare time we have, even after finishing work, we can go home, grab a bite to eat and spend the next few hours in the glorious countryside. I had been without my camera for three weeks in May, forgoing a beautiful month, while the Colchester Camera Repair Service replaced several components and re-soldered a broken switch. All my pent-up energy had to come out somehow. The week started with torrential rain and misery, but summer arrived on Wednesday and it looks set to continue into next week. Locations include the Sussex/Surrey border, the High Weald, Friston Forest and the South Downs. 

There are two mother Roe this summer at my deer location. One has twins, the other has a single Kid. Unfortunately, the tall grass obscures them from view; only brief glimpses are possible at this time of year. By mid-summer…

BRIGHTON & HOVE CALENDAR - 2015

Welcome to June, the first month of summer! My photo of a Roe deer is featured this month in the Brighton and Hove Calendar 2015. I remember this encounter well. The doe had emerged from the woods, to check on her babies, kept hidden in the wheat, but she spotted me and decided to tentatively walk down the tracks to get a closer look. I lost a few frames, because my hands were trembling with excitement!
And finally, some great news. My camera has now been fixed, thanks to the Colchester Camera Repair Service. When the weather improves in mid-week, I'll be heading straight for the Roe deer meadows in West Sussex.
