In a previous post I’ve harped on about how you do not have to travel far for the experience to be fabulous and I’m still a firm believer of this. MAYBE this is because I’m young, dumb and broke at the moment, trying to claw my way through my final year of university, and therefore do not have the time or funds to travel anywhere further… but MAYBE not.
This week was the first day of spring and the weather certainly seemed to deliver a spring-vibe so, my camera and I were out and exploring. After all, nothing quite compares to amazing natural lighting for your photographs. Look at me talking like a professional photographer… I wish! However, on the subject of photography, this is something that I definitely feel is a work-in-progress since starting my blog and my new camera boasts a plethora of features that I am yet to understand, but baby steps and lots of practice will get me there eventually…
Here’s a few of the outtakes:
It felt so cleansing to get out of the house and just wander around Coombe to take mind of assignments, albeit a little sludgy. One of my favourite things about walking through the woods is when beams of sunlight pierce through the gaps in the trees. You may think “woah, Chloe needs to subscribe to Netflix or something if she finds light-through-tree-gaps mesmerising” but sometimes simple is best!
Coombe Country Park are also currently building a Go Ape trail that opens around Easter, which I am beyond excited for! Who doesn’t love swinging through trees like a monkey?! Another height-related activity to upset Joel with – excellent.
You’re likely to think I’m a bad person for this, but a toddler was jumping around in the big puddles and I jested how amusing it would be if he fell over into the puddle, and low and behold it happened. Did I laugh? Of course. But karma acts fast… We had big intentions to embrace the sunny day and indulge in a classic whippy ice cream, however, these dreams were swiftly crushed by a freak hail storm that seemed to only target Coombe Abbey. Typical. So, we ended the visit being pelted in the face with hail stones as we charged back to the car for safety. Moral of the story – always think good thoughts!!
