The passing storms are creating some great rainbows today.

For the past few months I have been working with glass. Its a really interesting material to work with and with so many varieties of glass to choose from it takes a while to understand how the different colours, types and textures of glass will react once backlit.
So far I have designed and created a large landscape glass panel that sits above my front door and a more traditional style panel of a bird on a branch which I have designed and created for my Mom.
I have been working with Martin McAssey in Sheffield and his teaching technique, relaxed atmosphere and workshop facilities are really very good. Only problem is, it's very addictive and there are only so many places in the house to put the finished pieces!

A few shots from this evenings Sheffield Grand Prix. The streets of Sheffield are closed and a circuit is created for the cyclists to race. With the circuit being so short it is a great spectator sport with the riders passing by roughly every 90 seconds. The previous evenings were blessed with beautiful light but sadly this evening was pretty grey and dull. Still a good opportunity for some challenging shots.

Today I felt like 10 years old again, visiting airshows was a yearly treat with my Dad when I was young and I still love them to this day, they really trigger memories of being young and care free.
It has been 4 years since I last attended an airshow with my Dad, and today we were at the Royal International Air Tattoo at RAF Fairford in the Cotswolds. The raw power and noise of the fast jets is always an experience and the skills of the pilots is top class.
The one downside is the crowds and I took a gamble and booked for Friday tickets and it was ideal! We took my Dads camper van and stayed at a near by campsite on the Thursday night and left early for the airshow on Friday morning. No queue, no traffic and with the weather being excellent it made the day perfect.
