One lone tree stood in the middle of this farm field, defying the farmer’s straight lines. I came across this wonderful scene on a walk through a local village. The countryside of Kent has offered me some great material for my photography, from wide landscapes […]

Pumpkin and pine cones – Society6 collection

I’m a firm believer that every season brings its own beauty. Pumpkins and pine cones are just some of the attractions of autumn, along with the glorious reds and yellows of changing foliage. Along the side of the roads, the trees are practically glowing, while […]
