Black & White photography Project #3 : Cuttle Brook

This half term has been quite busy but in between we’ve had some lovely, relaxed outdoor moments, many spent in Cuttle Brook, a nature reserve literally on our doorstep. We’ve taken part in a nature day quiz (review to follow) and just enjoyed the reserve for what it is – a carefree place to enjoy the great outdoors.

I managed to capture these snapshots on our way to play pooh-sticks from Watkins bridge. This was on our way to discovering this swinging over the brook!

The long grasses are a favourite of Mademoiselle’s although it’s harder for Little Mister to keep up because in places the grass is almost as tall as he is.

I love this photo as he’s virtually swallowed up in the long grasses!

It’s moments like this that I remember why we swapped our London home for this little corner of Oxfordshire.  Happy days!

Hope you enjoyed your half term.


I’m once again linking up with Charly @ PODcast and her Black & White photography project #BWPhotoProject

Taking photography in B&W is more of a challenge, and if you’re interested here’s a useful (and quick!) tutorial to get you going or check out her Pinterest page for some truly inspiring black & white photography.

And with Fiona over at and her #CountryKids linky. It’s a great linky, lots of ideas about what to do and where to go for kids who enjoy the outdoors!
