Hi Everyone

The best way for you to see what is happening at LPH is to follow Johns daily projects on Blipfoto. He has now followed this project for over a year and if you access his photos, you will not only see some excellent images, but may also be inspired to create you own 365 project along with over 30 of our guests.

Here are a selection of the best images from Johns work over the past year.

Iceland 2012

Our first Iceland workshop was (I hope) a resounding success, with 13 photographers joining me at Reykjavik for a weeks photography in the land of fire and ice.

After convening in Reykjavik, a meal out on the town allowed everyone to get to know each other. The following morning we set off in out big green coach for the start of our tour round the southern part of Iceland.

Last weeks workshop

Great group – all expecting snow – none came until the day they left.

Last weeks group, Four regulars and four first timers; Keith, Mike, Kate, Rob, Lynton, Mark, Sarah and Dawn. - The group should have included Lycia, but she was forced off her bike by traffic, and fell on her arm, breaking it only two days before she was due to arrive. The group was a good mix of experience and newcomers, which always makes for an interesting course.

At this time of year we are often blessed with snow and frozen lake edges, but alas, nothing this year. Temperatures were very mild for February, but the weather remained overcast most of the week.

First week of the season

First week of the season over and a great week it was too. Thanks to the two Dennis', Will, Paul, Geraint, Dawn & Rob for making it such fun and for working so hard.

Monday we set out for the central Lakes, but low clouds and mist hanging round Derwentwater took us on a short detour that ended up lasting the whole day! A really misty morning was followed by blue skies, the walk through Manesty woods led to a still lake with great reflections and frozen edges to Derwentwater. Even the bog myrtyl was showing colour – very early in the season for that, but it completed the perfect day.

Happy New year to all our Blog readers!

2011 ended with a bit of a shock, we were enjoying a pre-Christmas ski holiday when, mid-week, in bad lighting, Gail suffered a serious crash on the slopes. Stretchered off the mountain, X-rays showed two broken vertebrae, the 3rd and the 5th. Fortunately, as the pisteurs were next to where Gail crashed, she didn't try to move and there is no spinal cord damage.
