Photo 28 – strawberries!

We went for a picnic in the park, and I took a picture of the strawberries! Not sure I got the focus completely right, but I think it came out well all the same! Oh how I love summer–time :)

Photo 27 – Auntie

This was taken last weekend at my cousin's wedding. It's a photo of my other cousin (the bride's sister) who was a bridesmaid talking to her Aunt who is admiring her flowers.

They didn't know I was taking the photo so it's a nice informal one. I like the light (it was a lovely sunny day) and also the look on my cousin's face.

Photo 26 – Spring

This was taken at Rutland Water near my new house on the Thursday before Easter. The sheep were incredibly tame and I managed to get close enough to take this cute picture without even using any zoom!

Photo 25 – Disco ball

This was taken in a club in Edinburgh when I went there on my cousin's Hen weekend over the holidays! Using the night mode on my camera.

Have lots of nice photos from over the holidays that I couldn't upload over dial-up internet so should be putting some more up soon!

Photo 24 – Aberystwyth beach

Taken yesterday afternoon on the beach in Aberystwyth! Cropped the top and bottom a little bit.

Photo 23 – flag

Taken in Turkey a couple of years ago in a huuuuge gorge. I was surprised that they'd gone to such lengths to get the flag hanging there and it looked great against the colour of the rocks and the sky!

Photo 22 – rays of sun

This was taken today on campus. I'd taken my camera in hoping to get some photos of the snow, but it had all melted, so I took a picture of the dramatic clouds instead!

Photo 21 – Frozen fountain

This was taken in Livigno, Italy (one of my favourite places in the world) of a frozen fountain and behind it some of the ice sculptures from their annual fesival. I like the colour of the sky behind as well as the blue of the valley and the light on the sculptures.

Photo 20 – shipwreck

This was taken from the paragliding, of the beach where we were landing on. The boats line up on the beach to take people on day trips around the coast, but there had been particularly strong waves the night before and the boat on the bottom left had been shipwrecked!

Photo 19 – paragliding 2

Well lots of people liked the other one of paragliding so thought I'd stick another one in!

If you look closesly you can see the huuuuge mountains in the background!

Photo 18 – paragliding

Took this whilst paragliding in Turkey. We landed on the beach just at the bottom of the photo. The photo is of my Mum!

Photo 17 – island

Took this photo when my mum and I went to Majorca to visit my grandparents. It just looks kind of ideallic.

Photo 16 – Turkish Sunset

Took this one on a beach in Turkey, amazing as the Paragliders were landing on the beach.

We actually did paragliding too, and I have some great pictures from that as well, so will put them up at some point.

Photo 15 – English seaside

A beach near the New Forest when I went camping there. I like the english-ness of it! And the pretty colours on the changing huts!

Photo 14 – Meta

Taken last night at Meta, using the "night landscape" setting on my camera. Was interesting photo-wise last night with all the different lights and lasers and effects going on, and of course the GLOW STICKS!!

Wasn't sure whether to crop some of the top of this photo off, so didn't.

Photo 13 – Brighton

Took this photo when my mum and I went on a girly weekend to Brighton (it's actually a really nice place and has lots of good shops, yay!).

Wasn't sure whether to crop some of the cloud off but it looks quite dramatic with it there I think! I like it because it's kind of a sunset but you can see the lights coming on on the pier too! :-)

Photo 12 – chair lift

Taken last year on a skiing holiday with my family. It had been snowing very slightly overnight and the trees were white!

Photo 11 – at the seaside

This photo was taken in France at the seaside in Normandy, near where my Grandparents have a house. This old French guy has set up his sweet stall by an old changing hut, and it looked quite quaint so I took a picture!

I had to crop it because my cousin is in the other half asking the guy a question – that's why he's pointing!

Photo 10 – fire

A photo of my chimenia (don't know how to spell it) at home.

Photo 9 – stormy sky

This photo was taken last year when I went to Snowdonia with the Hill and Mountain Walking Club. At some point on the way up to the top of Snowdon (I think).

I was having quite a stressful time at uni at the time (nothing ever changes…) and the chance to get away and see some stunning scenery was refreshing. I think this photo is quite dramatic. Maybe could do something with it with a better camera / motivation to play around in paintshop.
