Alone in the Countryside

I love countryside settings that remind me of glimpses from a  Famous Five book.

I love the shapes in pylons and as a child used to imagine that at night they got up and walked about.

My Favourite Photos I've Taken

There are some photos that you just love and looking at them brings back memories of great times with great people.

This is my son climbing one of the amazing trees at Mottisfont. The kids loved the grounds and the house - it has such a colourful history too!

This one of at the ruins of Netley Abbey is one of my favourites too.

This one is lovely my youngest daughter in the middle and my other daughter and her friend either side with the boys running around below the girls.

Ruins are gorgeous to take photographs of and I love the ruins of Netley Abbey as it is a short walk along Weston Shore so we go there quite often.

Some more pictures of the ruins.

Like a Duck to Water

Meaning: If someone has a natural talent for something and enjoys it, they take to it like a duck to water.
My other half took this great pic when he took the kids to take part in a duck race unfortunately they didn't win but it is an awesome photograph.

Welcome to Capturing Glimpses

I decided to create this blog so I could share some of the photographs I take on days out with my family. Just capturing glimpses of our lives and the world around us. I love taking photos of flowers and trees but also love capturing moments where my children look wonderful as they have new experiences or visit new places.
Last year we joined the National Trust and I absolutely love taking the kids out to National Trust properties and hope to create some pages that show the beauty of these places and gardens at different times of the year.
In my garden, after a rainfall, you can faintly, yes, hear the
      breaking of new blooms.
