Having been on leave from work for the last week or so I have had a chance to step away from the stress of the daily grind and again discover the joy of picking up a camera and heading out to find interesting photo opportunities to add to my portfolio. I have been away from photography now for too long and it has been one of my new years resolutions to get back on the horse and start to really build new material into my repertoire. Below is a selection of shots taken in early January 2012, hope you enjoy them.
