A Snowy V&A!

One of my absolute favourite places in London is the V&A, so it was a treat to pay it a visit with my camera when the ‘Beast from the East’ arrived in town.

The Natural History Museum was looking quite beautiful in the snow too!

Kew Orchids Festival

Once again this year I headed to the Kew Orchids Festival, this is the third year in a row that I’ve gone and it’s becoming a bit of a tradition. I went to the late event which was great with a brilliant atmosphere and stunning displays however the lighting wasn’t very conducive to me taking photos (or actually admiring many of the stunning displays in person!). It’s probably best to go during the day if you actually want to study the intricacies of these stunning plants.

But here’s a selection of photos I took on the night.

I would have liked to have the opportunity to take some more macro shots of the orchids but the lighting was not on my side so unfortunately most of my shots aren’t usable! A lesson learnt – and a different aspect of my photography to work on.
