The Greeks would plant a purple Iris on the graves of women, in hope that the Goddess would escort their souls safely on their journey to heaven.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Time

Tags : 

When I saw this week’s challenge I instantly thought that the only time that really matters is the present moment. Which in turn brought to mind an image I created last year about being one with the universe. Connecting with the Universe doesn’t require some special tool, knowledge or spiritual practice, it is experienced simply by being

Weekly Photo Challenge – Broken

Tags : 

I found this broken tree on the grounds of a lovely manor house in England, Croft Castle, when I was there in the summer of 2013. Croft Castle is located near the village of Yarpole in Herefordshire. I don’t know how long it had been lying there, but I thought it created a beautiful rustic image.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Fresh

Tags : 

Many images sprang to mind for this week’s Photo Challenge, but I decided to go with a simple shot of fruit. Raspberries are one of my favourites and these raspberries were growing along the side of a country road in Shropshire, England. Great reminder that the warmer weather is on it’s way.

Being a lover of nature, animals and ‘most’ children the above image truly reflects endearing for me. Out in the field, a young boy with a baby lamb and his beloved dog; it warms my heart on every level. If you notice I created the image with a child from from an era when life was

Weekly Photo Challenge – Sea

Tags : 

What does the sea mean to me? Well first and foremost I find being near the sea relaxing and inspirational, however, I also find it intimidating. The pure expanse and depth of the ocean with its underwater inhabitants and potential for huge roaring waves, make it as frightening as it is wonderful; to me anyway. I enjoy

VIDEO – Lightning in Cuba

Tags : 

You have to wait a few seconds to see the first lightning happen. But then the flashes get closer together and get more intense as you get further into it.  I find it just fascinating to watch and I did add music which I hope you enjoy too.
