The wind was wild, whipping the tree tops into a frenzy, it's waves rushing through the forest canopy, temporarily drowning out all chance of catching bird song.

Night Pint

  • Wed 20th Mar, 2019

The air was thick and sultry, the aftermath of the intense heat of the day. It must have been one of the hottest of last summer, and people had melted before my feet.

Time And Tide Wait For No Man...

  • Thu 7th Feb, 2019

  • Sun 20th Jan, 2019
