Jingles is convinced the way down is that way
One of the first things a good friend taught me when I’m on the mountains was the phrase ‘be bothered’ and it’s stuck with me. .
* Be bothered to layer up.
* Be bothered to stop for food/drink.
* Be bothered to check your map/use your compass.
* Be bothered to have a rest.
Being bothered could really help keep you safe out there. Jingles couldn’t be bothered; he guessed the way down from the summit and he got it completely wrong ... luckily we’re never out without a map/compass and it only took a few minutes to check our location and navigate off safely .
There are so many tools you can dip into to refresh/improve your winter skills ... be bothered guys, it really could make a difference
The view of the Shard taken at the Scoop. With the Christmas market alongside the smells and lights were like a dream. That shoot was amazing and one I'd like to revisit if I had more time or were closer to London.
I have been suffering with a cold this week and have been feeling pretty rubbish - lets hope its improved ready for some exploring with the camera over the weekend!
Well the snow has early all gone now but not before I share one more winter capture with you If you saw my story on Sunday when I was out in the blizzard this is where I was, the Priory Church in Dunstable. I’m fortunate to have this stunning building in my home town, founded in 1132 by Henry I. Impressive that it is today, this is only the nave of a much larger Augustian Priory church that once stood here
It was here in 1533 that a historic event in British history took place, the annulment of Henry VIII’s marriage to his first wife Catherine of Aragon by Archbishop Thomas Cranmer
On the final evening of this week's Northumberland workshop we headed up to the viaduct at Berwick-upon-tweed at dusk. The bridge is vibrantly illuminated every evening and thankfully on this occasion all the lights were working. Guy Edwardes Photography
