Liverpool is the most beautiful of cities

Beluga Watching at Chester Zoo

Fantastic weather, sunny but with a cool wind, perfect conditions to photograph the elephants, zebras, camels, warthogs, butterflies, chimps  …. the list goes on. Superb animal sightings and both my ‘students’ got some…

Welcome to the first day of autumn

‘Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower’ Albert Camus Today is the first day of autumn, well, Meteorological Autumn that is. The meteorological calendar splits the seasons into four equal periods, with spring, summer, autumn and winter all lasting exactly three months of the Gregorian calendar. This means autumn on the meteorological calendar falls…
