1 Year back blogging

It has been just over a year since I restarted my blog from the beginning and it has been a good year in terms of views and reaching out on the world wide web especially with the weekly photo challenges becoming popular and despite a little hiatus midway through 2016, still had many comments.

Here I am picking 5 of my favourite blog posts from the last year or so.

I have a few ideas regarding my website, complete new layout with prints to purchase etc.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Graceful

This weeks challenge subject is Graceful. I went for a walk at my local park through the week and I always find it peaceful even if it was cold and wet.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Resilient

This is my first weekly challenge post for a while and the first of the year, the subject is Resilient.

Meaning behind the photo i post today, a full house at Elland Road as the winning days continue to return. In past seasons at this stage we would be in a position of dire mid table, but at this time we sit 5th. Good times.

Whitby

Back on the August Bank Holiday I went to Whitby, North Yorkshire with 2 friends for the day. It was a great day out and quite warm too, I took my camera with me to get some photos as the town is so photogenic and as I enjoyed my previous shorter evening visit there with the camera last year, I knew that I would get some good images.

Visit to Prague

Back in August i took a short trip to Prague, Czech Republic to see a friend who had recently moved there and also as it is one of the cities on my list to visit, see https://robdphotographer.wordpress.com/2016/02/06/5-european-cities-i-want-to-visit/ for more details.

Here are a few photos from the trip and an enjoyable 5 days over there.

Highlights of the trip include a Bohemians vs Sparta Praha game, Prague Zoo, Old Town, Prague Castle and cheap beer and Good food.

All it takes is snow!!!

Recently I had lost my motivation for Photography (see https://robdphotographer.wordpress.com/2016/10/03/hiatus-from-photography/) and on this blog as well been a little quiet. Since last week was my week off from work I had planned to go out with my camera at least one day in the week and what do you know the day I planned for some Autumn photography shots in the local park turned white, due to a little bit of wintery weather we had overnight.

At first I thought I would stay in and stay warm as the snow was still falling at lunchtime, decided to dig my wellies from the cupboard, wrap up and venture out and to my delight got a couple of good photos, the few below are from my iPhone, as I am yet to get into Lightroom and edit them.

Enjoy the images below and I will be posting the shots from my SLR as soon as I have finished the edits.

I also have the photos from Prague and Whitby on separate posts for this weekend ­čÖé
