I wish there wasn’t as much tree in this shot as there is. I fired off about 15 shots, on two different cameras. This was probably the strongest. I spotted the cloud, which I thought looked like it was on fire, while I was on the ground floor of my house. I took this shot from my son’s bedroom window – the highest point I could get to, before the light changed too much. I had no idea when I starting shooting that a plane would come into view.
In July 2010 I spent a weekend camping and climbing in Snowdonia, Wales. It was a trip organised by my eldest son’s school. The whole class went, each child took a parent with them, and it was to mark the end of their final year in primary school. It was one of the best weekends of my life.
I arrived 10 minutes early, so I sat on the bench opposite my son’s primary school to wait for the end of the school day. While sitting I took some pics and reflected on how different his school’s setting is to the one I attended.
