Spooky Wood sits close to our home and is a fantastic natural adventure playground, or it would be if it wasn’t for the “natural” mine field of dog poo!! Anyway, poo aside we had a fantastic family outing with Andrew thinking he was a Pirate and Jodie thinking she was some extra from the movie “The Hunger Games”, lol.
I took my new Fuji X100 to try and become more acquainted with its whole new style of shooting. I’ll blog more about that soon.

Had a lovely Wintery lifestyle photoshoot in Clumber Park last weekend with Karina & Shaun and their fantastic family. It was a very cold morning, in fact my car registered -6 deg C when i set off, and most of us were feeling the chill before the photoshoot started.
I soon had them warmed up though yomping around the park trying to find some scenic spots avoiding the harsh brigh light. The sun was blazing and there was not a cloud in the sky so i found the metering a bit of a challenge.
Clumber park is a perfect location for outdoor lifestyle portraits with an abundance of different areas but this makes it very popular, even quite early in the moring, so carefull planning and patience is needed to avoid the populated hotspots.
Anyway, they all seemed to be having a fun time and we even managed to finish with a walk down the famous Lime Tree Avenue, which ended in snow ball fight which the parents lost.
Clumber Parks Lime Tree Avenue is the longest of its kind in Europe, almost 2 miles long. It was planted around 1840 an consists of 1296 common Limes planted in two double rows. It makes a fantastic photo location year round.
There were plenty images taken and this is just a small collection from the day.
