August snapshots

It has felt like summer has eluded us for the last month or so. It’s hard to believe there was a hosepipe ban here just a short time ago, when August has brought so much unrelenting rain. It has been warm, though, and in between the showers, there have been glimpses of an August summer.

As always,  I take my camera pretty much everywhere, trying to get in a little practice,  aiming to capture those little moments and record them before they disappear.

Boris , photogenic as always, is well used to the camera now !

Scenes from a wander round the beautiful garden of Hillsborough Castle as a birthday treat. (Hillsborough Castle is the official residence here for the Royal Family).
