Photographic Exhibition – 2016 – Adderbury Deddington and District Photographic Society

Every year in September our photographic club, the Adderbury Deddington and District Photographic Society holds its annual photographic exhibition. Usually this is a display of work from the last year. Now, our club is non-competitive. That means that, unlike many clubs, there are no competitions or judging of photos in the normal course of business. […]

Chesterton Windmill

Chesterton Windmill Sunset. We went to the windmill specifically to take photos in the sunset. As we drove there we could see the clouds coming up.

Chesterton Windmill Photo Shoot

We went to Chesterton Windmill to take photos in the sunset. A cloudy evening soon fixed that! Instead we were treated to the harvest moon rising.


River Festival

As we drove in, queueing for parking, objective number one was clearly in sight – the Jabberwocky’s green van. But we knew before we left home how that would go: brunch split between one of those excellent Jabberwocky toasties and then lamb and salsa verde from the Slow Roasted Meat Kitchen. Of course it’s the […]


Hedgehog in the Garden

A hedgehog in the garden paying us a visit. It’s unusual to see a healthy looking hedgehog in the garden when it is still light. The camera was ready!
