Some may have noticed that I have made a couple of changes to my website...the main one being that you are now able to download images.  I have set up 2 prices, the first one is at a lower resolution but should still be fine for social media purposes.  The other is a much higher resolution and would be better if you were going to print the image.  I would emphasise that downloading is for personal purposes only.  Should you want any of the photos for commercial purposes there will be a higher charge and I would request that you contact me by email for a price.

Right, now on to the best bits....

The Fetcheveryone event on the track at Wilberforce road was very popular.  There were certainly more running there than when I took part.  In addition to the one mile races,  there were also 800m, 400m, 200m and 100m races but who could forget the mince pie 4 x 100m relay.  Unfortunately only one mince pie got round complete so the final team over the finish line, were actually the winners.

The following day, I went to Hinchingbrooke park in Huntingdon for the 3rd round of the Frostbite league.  The weather was much better but the previous day's rain made for some true cross country running.

Monday concluded a long weekend of photography.  This was a studio session with a lovely model...Lottii Rose.  Whilst I spent quite a lot of the time available doing portraiture, there were a number photos taken that are not suitable to be shown here (but have been added to my adult gallery).

I went to see Cambridge Vs Rosslyn Park on the 17th December.  A reasonable introduction to photographing rugby since the ground is not too far from home.  Cambridge were well beaten on the day but I may well return at some point.

  

On the following day, it was Wimpole Junior parkrun with many of the juniors (and some adults) dressing up as Elfs.  A foggy and damp day made photography difficult but the important thing is that the children had fun.

On Christmas Eve I was at Cambridge parkrun and there were some great costumes on display, from the adults this time.   It was also a record attendance with a total of 558 runners.  I returned on the 1st January but I will talk about that in my next blog post.

My final event of the year was at Ely...well just outside, for the Ely New Years Eve 10k.

...and that's it for another year.  Happy New Year to my followers...I wonder what 2017 will bring.

As for future events, I am at Cambridge parkrun today (1st) but will talk about that in my next blog.  I have a studio session booked at my home for the 5th (portraiture only).  I am planning on taking some football photos of Hardwick playing Foxton on the 7th and I shall be at the Cambridgeshire cross country championships on the 8th.  I have another studio session booked for the 13th on a "rock chick" and "adult" theme.  I have pencilled in the 21st and 22nd for my next parkrun weekend...Cambridge on Saturday and Wimpole juniors on the Sunday.  I have to say however that this may be subject to change with the tax return deadline fast approaching in my full time job.
