Sometimes you have such a great weekend that you want to be able to bottle it and then re-open it every now and then to remind yourself how great it was, and how thankful you are for days and opportunities like those. It started on Friday when we went to do a land-girl photo shoot at a private air-strip in a stunning location. Oh my it was fabulous! A few friends of our host dropped by in their planes (landing in the garden as you do), and with the help of these magnificent men in their flying machines and two beautiful models we got the opportunity for some great shots. Plus there was a cat living there called Clyde that I got to cuddle. Wonderful day...
On Saturday we went to see friends of ours who wanted some pics of their three naughty baby ferrets. Such fun and games! They also have two cats who I've featured before (Elvis and Misty), and it was lovely to see everyone and catch up. Then on the way home we finally saw a field of hay bales and a great sunset - so I did my 'STOP THE CAR!' thing and leaped out, camera in hand.
So a big THANK YOU to all the people who made this such a great few days... It made me realise why I love being a photographer.

It took a year of planning by David,
and the help of all these people to make the shoot happen.
The feet belong to our friend Nicole - the fab ferret is Freija.
I have waited weeks to be in
the right location at the right time
to get a shot like this.
I haven't got a shot of me doing my happy dance
so you'll just have to imagine it :-)
