My husband Peter is pretty much a genius behind the camera (he’s the most humble dude you could meet so will no doubt be cringing at that description) but hey he’s got a gift as those who follow this blog or my instagram feed can see and I want to shout about it!
I’m not too shabby shooting myself, but work life sure is easier with a personal paparazzo to snap me and the kids, along with other shots I need for both my blogs and Peter is passionate about photography thankfully. No selfie-sticks needed here then!
…Going through old files (back up your work, people), I happily discovered these quite frankly breathtaking landscapes taken by Peter in Leeds, Yorkshire which this post being dedicated specifically to views either from my parents or our house or close to where we live.
I want to start sharing his work regularly, finding a space here to create a photo series for you all to enjoy.
…We were both blown away by the response on Twitter, FB and Instagram when I shared a few of his photos, with hundreds of RT’s, shares and even requests to buy prints.
…Peter is an IT whizz by day working for IBM but he’s also been commissioned on projects for me, mostly in fashion, thanks to this blog and Mummy’s Got Style.
He’s in the process of creating a new website and there’ll be lots of exciting ways you can enjoy his work more, coming soon!
For now though, why not take a moment out of your day and simply relish these happy-making beauties below:
Closer view from my parents’ house-their garden overlooks fields, a reservoir and a pretty fairytale-esque winding forest, below.
We really feel so lucky to live in lovely Yorkshire, my folks’ house and our own are but a mere 15 minutes apart, both overlooking the open countryside- and it sure makes life feel that bit sweeter filling our lungs with fresh air and waving to ponies on the school run!
I once painted this view and aged 17, exhibited and sold the piece in a Belgravia art gallery.
A sole feather hangs on to tightly to the ears of wheat.
Another shot taken from my parents’ garden. Rolling clouds above bails of hay. Dreamy.
Nearby forest, the branches, spidery silhouettes against a silver sky.
I love the cinematic feel of the photo below, the clarity of the image, the drama of the darkening sky-it’s just stunning.
Below, the symmetry of the trees which dance in the breeze-I often take this route for runs when the weather allows. This was snapped in Autumn.
A sole cloud, other-worldly and the late afternoon flare of the sun.
A regular windy walk we take as a family near my parents’ home.
I adore these wintery shots-white snow reflects the light and makes everything look so crisp, clean and serene.
The snow here, reminds me of crushed ice drinks, I want to dive right in!
Finally, for now, the river by our home.
Watch this space (literally) for more photo posts in the near future and do follow me on Instagram and Pinterest too to keep track of Mr Honest Mum’s photography.
