South Downs Sunset & Celebration Seb: Ah, back to my comfort zone of landscapes. I thought I was doing rather well, having not done one since week 1! But here I am… chasing the perfect landscape yet again. This one’s of the South Downs (I think). At least, it’s south of where I am now, and north of Brighton, which I think is the South Downs.

The Leaf Ninja & ‘Yes, they’re real’ Seb: Oh, look, it’s a… a… er… SOMETHING! Hiding in the trees! The original concept for this photo was to have me laying on the ground, my face covered in leaves, with just my eyes visible. Turns out the big-leaf trees aren’t shedding yet.

This weekend was certainly an education when it came to insects and plants. Who would’ve thought that taking a photo of a moth would’ve doubled or tripled my knowledge of the animal kingdom? Hot on the back of the HAWK MOTH, I now have some photos of peacocks. Originally, I thought I had some peahens too, but as it turned out: it was just an albino peacock. How about that.
