So I've been on an amazing trip to California this month. We drove down the coast starting in San Francisco and finishing in LA. There was so much I was looking forward to on our trip but Alcatraz was definitely top 3!!  
It might have had something to do with the gorgeous Californian blue sky coming out just as we were traveling over to the island but I have to say I really enjoyed it!! I found the island bright and full of life. There was some beautiful flowers growing in broken shell's of building's like the Warden's house and there were birds everywhere! There was a audio tour of the main cell house which I found really interesting. It's definitely worth a visit.

Landscapes of Iceland

I went to Iceland for my birthday in March. It's an amazing country. There's the most stunning views everywhere you go. I took a crazy amount of photo's so i'm going to break them up into sections. The first is Landscapes. We drove around the western peninsular and many of the photos below where taken there. Each stop felt like we were only just scratching the surface. What we really needed to do was to spend hours and hours exploring and discovering each new beach, mountain or town. But we only had short amount of time to fit everything in so a quick stop at each place would have to do this time round.

The sun during the eclipse. The sky has a funny kind of twilight. 

Iceland is such a beautiful country. I would definitely go back. Maybe to explore the Eastern side next time.

Snap shots from San Sebastian!!!

Goose Barnacles

Evening Surfers

The Guggenheim in Bilbao

Bar Nestor

I went on my holidays to San Sebastian in Spain. Here are a few snap shots. I had an amazing tasting menu at Asador Etxebarri, where I had some funny little Goose Barnacles and the most amazing Tomato I have ever eaten but I ate it too quickly to get a photo! Also had the best txuleta (steak) from a little pintxos bar called Bar Nestor. San Sebastian is all about the amazing food!!!

My new Minolta Hi-Matic F

Some old school 35mm prints from my trip to San Sebastian. I'm still learning how the camera works so they're not perfect but I love the feel they have. The photo of the cake shop came out particularly well if I do say so myself!

A sunny walk!

We went for a walk round Camley Street Natural Park. It was so nice. So peaceful even though it's near a busy Kings Cross. There was lots of wildlife and views of the Canal. Lovely on a summers day.
