Colourful Sky

Colours in the clouds

While watching some men climbing the steeple of the URC church in Colchester’s Red Lion Precinct I noticed the sun shining through some ice crystals in the clouds to create some beautiful colours.

Photos from this weekend’s carnival in Colchester

The last time I went to Colchester carnival I think I watched it from my Dad’s shoulders, so it was a real treat to be in town when the parade went past this year.

Sadly I didn’t realise that the naked bike ride was also passing through the town an hour or so later, so you have been spared the photos of that event!

The Tendring Show

This weekend I was treated to a day out with my brother at The Tendring Show. I’ve never been to a country show before and relished the opportunity to go to a typically British event with my camera.

There was everything there from a pigeon show, dog agility tests, a pipe band and the usual sheep, goats, cows and horses. Below are a few of the many photos I took hoping to capture a flavour of the day.

I had a great day and may need to investigate entering the art competition next year!
