I live in a camper van with a West Highland Terrier for company.
My passion is creating images but it is a work in progress.

HAPPY NEW YEAR (31/12/11)

We are enjoying rain, sleet, ice and snow at Tan Hill.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA The camper has pride of place.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe road in is passable so no problem……it is a little icy.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAA good sunrise. I’m enjoying the calm before the storm. I have the world pretty much to myself. By lunchtime the place will be manic.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Happy New Year I hope it is trouble free and prosperous for you all.

See you again in 2012.
