We were sat on the rear patio the other evening, 32 degrees, and at about 8.00pm two combines arrived to cut the wheat field behind.
We have had lots of Hoopoes nesting around the house this year. These stunning little birds are part of the Kingfisher family and have a distinctive crown. This young one shown here has just found his breakfast.
Sunflowers in abundance. Probably about 20 acres of them in the field in front of the house. The farmers do rotate the crops annually, so not sure where they will be next year.
"Ian is one of those rare people who is not only a great photographer but is also extremely adept at passing his knowledge and skills on to other people in a way that is both informative and fun".
"Ian's long experience in the teaching field and his patience and understanding of his subject make learning a pleasure".
"Whatever the subject matter, Ian's ability as a photographer is only matched by his deservedly good reputation as a teacher"
"Hi Ian, Just a quick note to say thank you for the abundance of photography knowledge that I have gained with your help. I can never thank you enough for the insight into both the camera and the computer that I have gained through watching you, and learning to see a picture, capture it and then process it through the computer. You have that unique ability to make learning a pleasure, not a chore"
We have had numerous requests to run workshops for gite and chambre h'hote owners in the region.
We have now put together a series of one day courses covering all levels of expertise, from beginners to serious enthusiasts. You can see the content of the days by going to the Gite Owners button at the top of the page.
If any of these interest you, please drop us an email.
