Photography Bulletin, Novermber 2017

Doug Kennedy Photography Bulletin, November 2017 Dear Friends, This is my photography bulletin which I am sending to contacts who have shown or may have an interest in my photography, books and cards. If you do not wish to receive any more of these (they will be sent out 3 or 4 times a year) then please reply with the words, ‘Stop bulletin’ or similar and I will remove your email address from the list. The autumn started for us with a trip to Andalucia under

Bluebells at Aston Rowant

Another bright, cold morning with the temperature only 4 degrees at 8.30am. We had a little rain over the weekend, but the ground everywhere is extremely dry and cracking. What happened to April showers? Over the past week, the trees have burst into leaf: even oak trees starting to grow foliage which seems very early. I drove to Aston Rowant NNR, parking at Aston Woods. The mature beech trees’ leafless canopies spread like a vaulted cathedral roof from their tall, grey trunk columns, apart from a

A Whale Of A Time In Kerry

A Whale Of A Time In Kerry

Kerry, on the glorious west coast of Ireland, has a lot to offer, including some of the loveliest landscapes you could wish to see, great mountains to roam in and the Atlantic Ocean, where you can see seabirds, seals, dolphins and whales only a couple of miles from the coast. On our week-long holiday, the people we encountered were delightful and full of Irish charm, and our accommodation and meals were all great. The icing on the cake was that we saw it all in great weather which,

This is my second photography bulletin, which I’ve sent to my existing contacts list. If you would like to receive updates and new images, please send me your name and email address.

The North Downs Way will be on Google Street View. Get the book!

The entire North Downs way has been walked with Google’s street camera equipment and will be the first long distance footpath to be covered this way. “We’re putting the best of the British countryside where it’s never been before – on Google maps,” said Peter Morris, the North Downs Way trail manager. From 17 March, when the North Downs Way goes live, the national trails will start appearing on Google Street View. The Cleveland Way will be next. This means that you will be able to

Doug Kennedy Photography Bulletin 2015

This is my first photography end of year bulletin which I hope you will find interesting, but if not, just respond to it saying something like ‘no thanks’ and I will remove you from my list. The two biggest events for me during the year were the publication by Oxbow Books Ltd. of North Downs Landscapes in May, and Norfolk Landscapes in October. If you bought either of them, thank you very much indeed, and if you have any comments or can do an online review,

North Yorkshire Moors In The Snow

North Yorkshire Moors In The Snow

[singlepic id=769 w=400 h=300 ] I am currently working on three books – North Downs Landscapes is complete and we’re doing final proof reading so it can go to the printers for publication in March – very exciting! I’m well on the way with Norfolk images but want to get there to get some good wintry shots, preferably with snow. There are also seals on Blakeney Point that would be good to capture in a photo, but it’s a good 4 hour journey…. And I’ve made

North Norfolk Coast, Hunstanton to Cromer

[singlepic id=688 w=400 h=300 float=middle] It’s amazing how popular the North Norfolk Coast is: I had only been there once, in the middle of winter, many years ago, but everyone I meet seems to have some connection with it. This is definitely the most scenic part of Norfolk, and a lot easier to photograph than the fens and Brecks of the the south-eastern part of the county, especially when the weather is good. I took Lindsey and the dogs this time, and we spent four nights

Save The River Thame Update

Save The River Thame Update

Time flies! It’s a month since the Save The River Thame seminar in Aylesbury and progress has been gradual because it’s the holiday season, and everyone (including me) has been or is on holiday. This is not a problem as we are into a long-term project to secure a permanent improvement in the River Thame and its wildlife. It seems to be in quite good condition currently following the major sewage works upgrade by Thames Water and is running clear. I have seen some small fish

The big seminar is tomorrow – Re-establishing Water Quality and Wildlife in the River Thame

Save The River Thame has been running for nearly a year, and it is the anniversary of the pollution incident that caused the fish and dragonflies to die last year. We are holding our big seminar tomorrow morning in Aylesbury and all the people that we need will be there: at least, that’s what they’re telling me! The AIM is to initiate the process of turning this polluted tragedy of a river back into a healthy stream filled with fish and invertebrates. The agenda is 10:00
