Pretty in Pink….

Richard and I managed to be in two places at once last Sunday. I photographed the Habberley Fun Ride whilst Richard photographed the Pink Potter with the help of the intrepid Jack Sagar. An awful lot of hard work went into the organisation of the Pink Potter by Linda Sagar and the committee, assisted by Edward Tate from the Isle Estate who could not have been more obliging and helpful…so it was very nice to see the cars rolling up with their occupants and dogs wearing varying shades of pink. At the last count the Pink Potter raised around £2000 for Breakthrough Breast Cancer…

The Habberley Fun Ride was well attended also, with spectacular views of the South Shropshire Hills.  All the riders taking part seemed to be enjoying themselves…

The photographs from both events can be found on the CountryStyle Photography website.

We have a nice varied weekend coming up. On Saturday 11th June we shall be alongside the River Severn at the Bridgnorth Regatta…and Sunday shall see us beside the sea in North Wales at the Kinmel Park Fun Ride. Hope this weather improves!

Messing about on the river…

I do think that Richard has it very easy at regattas, although no doubt he will disagree.  All he has to do is sit there by the river, soaking up the atmosphere,  photographing every boat as it goes past. Whilst I sit for hours in our trailer frantically sorting the images into single sculls, quads etc so that I can find your photos relatively quickly. Mind you, I think I had the best spot at Shrewsbury regatta on Saturday afternoon when the heavens opened, and he was trying to keep everything dry whilst still taking photos. Because as you know…the show goes on whatever the weather! As you can see from the final photo below…I am not talking about a little shower here!

Anyway, it was great to see so many familiar faces at Shrewsbury over the weekend, and at Chester the week before. All the photos from both events  may be found on the CountryStyle Photography website. Our next regatta will be Bridgnorth regatta on June 11th, Stratford upon Avon regatta on the 18th June,  followed by the Ironbridge regatta on June 25th & 26th. Hopefully summer will have returned by then!
