How the weather has changed this week. Thursday, just over a week ago, we were snowed in. Friday saw most of the country grind to a halt with snow, and Saturday, only mad people ventured out. That’s when I seized my opportunity and headed up the Lake District to meet my friend Steve. It was [...]

It’s felt like an eternity since I witnessed a good sunset or sunrise. But last weekend, I made a trip over to Formby with a friend and it was as if everything just fell into place. The day had been a little frustrating, alternating between too much cloud and not enough. As we sat on [...]
