Drawing on the iPad is an instant hit.  Magnificent for the quick idea that needs taking from my mind and placed somewhere for future reference

My obsessions come and go fairly promptly.  One that is sticking around is the boundaries of fields - hedgerows, fences, walls.  This is an example of what is in my head right now, a copse of silver birch, with the darkness of the densely compacted trees being quite a tempting place to explore.

Upper Wharfedale, a set on Flickr.
I went looking for artistic inspiration in the Yorkshire Dales yesterday and ended up in Wharfedale. A lovely quite day was spent wandering from Kettlewell to Buckden along the valley side, and then returning across the tops of Birks and Firth Fell. I took a huge number of photographs, most of which will never see the light of day. This little set on Flickr are the cream of the crop.
