A little spot only a few miles away from Richmond, that I had never really investigated up til the weekend. I'm always a sucker for a lone tree, this one caught my eye as I cycled past the other day. With a clear evening, and some lovely textures in the field, I thought it would be good to try and work a shot of it.
Being a resident of Richmond for 18 months, it was somewhat of a travesty that I had not been inside the castle grounds as yet. Fortunately, another work excursion allowed me a couple of hours away from the office, to work up some shots from the Castle. It was just as impressive as I had hoped, though the empty space inside the grounds made it tough to work a good angle. I quite like the angle of the second shot, but it certainly needs another attempt, for me to try and improve the composition.

An impromptu day free from work, meant that I had the time to head south, in the hope of catching the test session at Donington in preparation for the Donington Historic Festival. Despite somewhat inclement conditions, I managed to catch quite a bit of testing on track, and although the weather was not conducive to a grand day out in the sun, it was still a very enjoyable trip.

Following a week of chasing cars around France, a lengthy day travelling north from Bourgogne facilitated a little trip to Belgium to catch some rallying before an evening ferry back to the UK. Having heard great reports about the quality and variety of Belgian rally entry lists, we were certainly not disappointed. A thick fog in the morning made for a quite disconcerting atmosphere, with WRC cars popping and banging their way through the mist. Following a bout of electrocution from an electrified barbed wire fence, the haze soon lifted to reveal some top notch rally action.
