Even though Little Bredy is a very small hamlet there’s so much to explore. Made famous for its waterfall thanks to that popular tv series Broadchurch, Little Bredy is so much more than that. There’s a beautiful little church which has lots of history, there’s a walled garden which is often open to the public during the warmer months, there’s an artisan furniture maker/artist, the well renowned @thedorsetfoodie aka Christine McFadden lives and concocts up her delicious recipes in a quaint little cottage, there’s a rather lovely cricket pitch and pavilion, a Manor House, and a wonderful couple of lanes to walk up and down! The river Bride also starts it’s life there! That’s quite a list for a little hamlet in a quiet part of Dorset! .

Remember the goats in #Vernecommon? They’re still there, munching the scrub and getting fat, were told! To celebrate #OurDayDorset we are flashing back to #summer (remember that? Nope, me neither...) when we first released the goats. This photo has Abi, one of our lovely Estates Officers who oversaw the project on the left, with other key contributors to the project with her. #Portland #dorset #portlanddorset #dorsetliving #ourday #goats #fanciesfarm

'Romantic Door'

My amazing wife and I had the day to ourselves today and took a walk down to Durdle Door.

It was windy, cold and cloudy but by the time we made it to the beach the cloud had cleared leaving brilliant sunshine and some warmth.

The scene before me was a mix of moving waves, people walking near the shore, bright sunshine reflecting off the water, footprints in the sand and the backdrop of the iconic Durdle Door.
This image was taken using a technique called intentional camera movement (some call is rotate, rattle and shake) to create a blurred/obscure photograph. Individual frames are selected and blended together carefully in post production.

I'm really enjoying learning and pushing myself to try new things in my photography and enjoy this genre of imagery. I hope you do too.

Me, when someone is cutting down down a tree 🌳 in my neighbourhood...! Even hedge trimming kick starts my separation anxiety and the body's fight and flight mechanisms 😤!!
.
We need all the fucking trees we can get on this planet now 🌳🌍, especially in densely populated areas such as the UK. Plant trees instead 🌳and contribute to reducing the CO2 emissions that is about to make this planet inhabitable 🌍😢.
.
My neighbours will probably not be happy, but I'm about to make my garden into a mini rainforest. I did a count, and have planted nearly 20 trees over the last few years.
.
I'm not against sustainable tree farming, but I believe in urban areas where there aren't a lot of trees; cities etc. we should leave the poor trees alone. What if everyone planted a few more trees in their garden 🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳.
.
If we are unable to plant any trees ourselves, we can let @ecosia do it for us by using their search engine 🙏💚🌍.

✨gorgeous morning walk with our dog in Beaminster✨ huge skies of bruised mauves & blues, an Easterly wind that blows reminders of 2010 when we lived in North Dorset & the dairy froze up, registering a temperature of minus 17🥶. Wrapped up warmly, exploring the myriad of footpaths that cross cross our beautiful county is the best way to see it. To drink it in & get some #rosesinyourcheeks Makes getting back to a hot mug of tea such a joy #thehideaway #escapefromitall #findyourpeaceful #lookatthatview #abookaradioandamugoftea #agriculturalarchitecture #dogswelcome #dorsetliving #dorsetinwinter #kingslandfarm #romanticbolthole #getoutside #walkingindorset #beaminster

Think it just could be a day of fires..... #dorsetliving #dorsetfarm #londonweekend #chunkyknits

Firing up for Sunday lunch. Slow food requires compromise ie getting up at 7am but fortunately kids have the same requirements #dorsetfarm #dorsetliving #slowfood #londonweekend #theprocessbegins

Yayoi Kusana at Victoria miro gallery. Clem would like this in her bedroom. #dorsetliving #dorsetfarm #london #culturevulture

It’s children in need night which makes me as a parent pause for thought and realise how lucky and blessed we are to have two happy healthy fun loving little munchkins! I’m definitely becoming more sentimental as I get older but I guess part of that is having life experiences with your family and realising even when you’ve had a bad day or the kids are being little buggers that at the end of that day we are the most fortunate of people. End of sentimental broadcast #dorsetfarm #dorsetliving #blessed #littlemunchkins #sentimental #childreninneed2018
