Love from Besalu and Catalonia

Here’s part two of my trip to Catalonia’s medieval coast, following on from my post the other day showing the wacky world of Salvador Dalí’s house and gardens. Walking down the hilly streets from Portlligat, we spent an afternoon in the coastal town of Cadaqués, a popular holiday resort for locals. Many winding backstreets had…

Portlligat and Dalí’s house

In October I was able to travel with friends to Catalonia for a weekend of arty inspiration. There was so much to take in that I thought it worth blogging in two parts. This post details some of the wildly wacky world of Salvador Dalí’s house at Portlligat – I have to be honest, I…

Orkney Folk Festival

Last month I took a trip to the Orkney Folk Festival with my violin-playing eldest, for a musical long weekend. Orkney is somewhere I first visited as an 11-year old on a school trip – we ate a lot of Smash instant mashed potato and somehow managed to get sunburnt off the north coast of…

Scotland’s North Coast 500

I’ve been meaning to share a fuller picture of a road trip we took last summer around the far north coast of Scotland. Billed by the tourist board as the ‘North Coast 500’, it’s also been touted as the best road trip in the world. You certainly get a hugely varied amount of spectacular scenery,…

NT Stourhead – Wiltshire landscaped gardens

Last month I visited Stourhead Gardens in Wiltshire to photograph an intimate wedding in the perfect setting of the Temple Of Flora – by the lake as you enter the gardens. I hadn’t visited Stourhead before but as a National Trust member and established garden photographer, it’s been on my radar for some time. Being…

Autumn in Edinburgh travel photography

Edinburgh is my home town – born there, spent most of my school years there, rarely have a chance to visit these days. I think that when you live somewhere, it’s hard to see past the daily life of getting things done, to be able to view it with artistic, creative eyes. I know for…

  • Vince Docherty - You have really caught Edinburgh and the quality of photography is superb. I moved to the area early this year but have had very little time to explore, and I will definitely use this as a guide book. We HAVE discovered Mimi’s, and made it too much of a haunt. Too tempting. Check “thisisedinburgh” on Instagram, and they will almost certainly use some of these images.

    • JulieAnne - Thanks so much for looking through and for your kind words! I know you will discover many, many hidden gems as you begin to look around. A bit jealous of your move! Enjoy it.ReplyCancel

  • Julia Forsman - I cannot stop looking at these Julie. You are a wonderful photographer. Great memories and I love that I am in the pictures too. Looking forward to next year already!ReplyCancel

    • JulieAnne - That means a great deal coming from you – thank you! Really enjoyed your company and I’m now wondering where we might end up next year? Exciting! ReplyCancel

Scotland North Coast 500 road trip

Scotland’s North Coast 500 route begins and ends in Inverness, and takes you round the Scottish coastal road at the very northernmost tip of mainland Britain. I have so much more to say about this, but that’s for another blog post or two. For now, I’m just going to post a selection of photographs to give…

Faodail: June blog circle

Back to this month’s blog circle and our word for June, which is Gaelic: Faodail (n) (fay-uh-day-l) a lucky find. It might refer to a found object but I’m also interpreting this as stumbling across situations and places that I hadn’t planned or known about in advance, but which felt like I was lucky to witness. My…

Ciao Venezia – Venice travel photography

Venice had never really been on my list of must-visit places in the world. I knew plenty of people who’d been for an anniversary trip, but I didn’t imagine myself onto a romantic gondola or sipping over-priced tourist coffee in Piazza S.Marco. What did appeal, though, was a photographic trip with 5 lovely friends from the…
