Spring Time!

So today I felt a change in the weather. Still damp and grey, but a distinct mildness that is giving me hope for Spring. At last.

So in honour of the change, I've been wearing some pretty pastel nail polish. A fresh mint colour. And apparently Alexa and Leigh feel the same. comes Spring!

Veolia Environnement - Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2010

Leopard Descending - Ajit K Hullgol (India)

Deer in the grove of giants - Floris van Breugel (USA)

The lone fir - Thomas Haney (USA)

A nice thing to do on a bleary eyed Sunday afternoon, be blown away by some pretty amazing photography.

In this scenario, we are talking about Veolia Environnement - Wildlife Photography of the Year 2010 at the National History Museum a few weekends ago.

Picked from 43,000 images and embodying the most inspiring and innovative shots of nature at it's best is enough to make you want to buy an SLR and give it a go yourself. Maybe just me.

My favourites above include: deers amongst Giant Sequoias in California's Sequoia National Park; a leopard running the length of a tree at super speed and a haunting image of a lonely Fir tree to demonstrate the effects of extensive logging in the Pacific Northwest.

Check out: or have a wander around.
