Blogging is back :)

So.... first time blogging on the new site and I timed out and lost my post. Let's start again.

It's been a good year now since I started volunteering at Caenhill Countryside Centre. The blog posts and daily photographs might have eased off over the last couple of months, but I've still been taking photographs every week and will soon be making a shortlist of images to pass to Chris for the 2016 calendar. I've no idea how that came around so fast! June 12th will see the anniversary of when I first picked up a DSLR at the farm, and wow has that changed my life. I'm partway through a university foundation course in photography (learning how little I really know) and am on the cusp of an embarrassingly soft launch of my own business (ditto).

In a year it's hard to know which has changed more - my own life and passions, or the CCC that provided me with such wonderful opportunities. I'm photographing and writing about creatures, plants and structures that just weren't here 12 months ago. First generation turkeys are sitting on the second generation, pigs are starting to get frisky, Billy's getting very possessive over anything that's female and feathered, and my husband now measures all other eggs against the gold standard of CCC eggs. We have honey from Caenhill bees on our toast, and B got to help with planting potatoes. I got to photograph a team of amazing soldiers from the British Army who volunteered via Help for Heroes, what an absolute honour.

It's impossible to list out all the improvements that have been made and they all deserve far more words than I have here, so I think I'll run a series of blog posts now that I'm back in the saddle.
